Over on Square Enix’s ever-informative 3rd Birthday Twitter account, producer, Hajime Tabata, talks about the Nintendo 3DS and, in a surprisingly open fashion, casually contemplates the possibility of a remake of Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII on the system.
Before Crisis, in its current form, is a mobile phone action-RPG that is part of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII project. The game is a prequel, taking place six years before the events of FFVII, and is based around the Turks, who perform covert
operations for the Shinra Corporation.
Tabata isn’t thinking of a quick-and-dirty port, however. He’s quite impressed with the 3DS, so he would like to change the game to better suit the platform.
“If I were to do something on 3DS, it’d be a Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII remake I guess,” Tabata writes. “Completely changing the scenario composition and game design for the 3DS, if it were an action RPG BCFF7 that lots of Turk players could simultaneously play at a dizzying pace… Wait a second; this work is not an official announcement of course.”
Lots of Turks players playing at the same time? That sounds like Tabata has some sort of co-op element in mind. Keep in mind, this isn’t official…yet.
