Ever since seeing the intro to Final Fantasy VII remade in HD in that PS3 tech demo back in 2005, I've been silently, yet skeptically, hoping for an upgraded remake of the game. Well, it looks like the reality of such a remake may or may not hinge on Square Enix's upcoming mobile game.
Final Fantasy VII G-Bike was announced at E3 this week as a smartphone game for iOS and Android platforms. The game is basically the biking minigame from the original Final Fantasy VII, but more in-depth. For development, Square Enix turned to developer Cyber Connect 2, apparently something that Tetsuya Nomura had long considered.
