Yoshinori Kitase, long-time Final Fantasy producer, said he’d personally love to remake Final Fantasy 7, but budget and staff concerns lead him to believe that a lot would need to fall in place for a new version of the game to make the light of day, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

Square Enix is not currently developing a Final Fantasy 7 remake, and Kitase, in an interview with Eurogamer, said that a project like that would be a monumental undertaking, both personally and from the studio.

“Even if I casually say I would like to do that, because it would be a huge project I would have to motivate myself to the level that I really am prepared to take on this huge responsibility,” Kitase said.

Kitase said personally he would “definitely” love to make a Final Fantasy remake, but though he wouldn’t rule out the game eventually being updated, budget and staffing concerns seem to make it a huge task.

“It has to tick lots of very big boxes.” Kitase said. “I won’t rule out the possibility, but it would take a lot to make it happen.”

Kitase said it would be the largest project he’s ever worked on if he should take on the task of remaking Final Fantasy 7, calling it his “life work.”

“… I would have to be as highly motivated as that to end up with something I’m very happy with. It’s a huge thing for me,” Kitase said.
