I can see your point, however XIII-2 reused many resources from the first, leaving room to do other things like smaller towns and less linear maps.

I think I remember them saying that making a VII remake would be like 3 times as much as the first XIII took to make, though. That did shock me, but hey, I can't tell if it's accurate or not. I'm not a developer lol.

I wonder how long it would take to just add to it? Like...rather than doing a full on remake with updated graphics and what not...just use the old engine...and make a whole bunch of new added content for the game. I'm not sure how game design works...but doing that, slapping it all into one giant finished product and then simply re-releasing it would be more than enough to keep the FF7 fans at bay.

I'm not going to pretend that I'm all that knowledgeable regarding development of games and engines, but I'm pretty sure that the old engine is a no-go with the new hardware.

From what I can tell, it's another game that they may have lost the source code, seeing as how the steam version of 7 was just a tweaked version of the PC port.

Apparently that's also the reason FF3 had to be made chibi style, and couldn't get the 1 and 2 anniversary treatment.
