Having a solid relationship doesn't mean that they wouldn't wanna expand their horizons to make more money
for me, it's not the fact that they went multi-console... it's just the way they took their games to a different path, more western way. i don't think they listen to the general audience that much anymore
Honestly this is the best game to bring back some of those classic characters in. Everyone and their mother wouldn't mind seeing Cloud and Sephiroth, but I'm really hoping for Vivi from FF9. They were Playstation exclusives and extremely popular. Its really too bad that it isn't about who we most want to see.
