Making A Final Fantasy VI Remake Would Be Difficult, According To FFVIIR Producer

Working on a Final Fantasy VI remake would be difficult, according to Final Fantasy VII Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase.

Speaking during a special round-table discussion to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy VII Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase stated that making a Final Fantasy VI remake would not be an easy undertaking.

Kitase mentioned that there are many Final Fantasy VI fans within the company, and they often as him when his team would work on a remake. According to him, a Final Fantasy VI remake would be difficult to make. He said that the Final Fantasy VII remake trilogy is not yet finished, therefore he is currently unable to think about another remake.

Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, who was also part of the round-table discussion stated that, given how Final Fantasy VI is a pixel-based game, a potential remake would have to change the story and redo everything in CG, which would be very hard to do. However, he then proceeded to ask Kitase if they could release it a bit sooner. Kitase responded by saying that it is not an easy undertaking.

Make of this what you will, but it seems like the intent to work on a Final Fantasy VI remake is certainly there. However, if it does indeed happen, it won’t be anytime soon.

Final Fantasy VI is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994. Serving as the sixth main installment in the Final Fantasy series, it marked a significant departure as it was the first entry to be helmed by directors other than the series creator, Hironobu Sakaguchi. Yoshinori Kitase and Hiroyuki Ito took the reins for this installment. Notably, the renowned artist Yoshitaka Amano returned to contribute as the character designer and concept artist, while the iconic composer Nobuo Uematsu composed the game’s score, which has since been released in multiple soundtrack albums.
