When Final Fantasy VII director Yoshinori Kitase said a remake would be his "life's work" and he'd "love to do it," classic RPG fans everywhere once again began to salivate.
Yeah, sorry, we couldn't help it.
However, as for why the project has never happened, Kitase cited many of the same reasons we've been hearing for over a decade. Perhaps that's why, according to the results of our latest poll, most of our readers say they'd like to see a remake, but it'll probably never happen. A very large portion said "no chance," but another sizable group opted for shining optimism: "Yes! It will be Kitase's final glory." No idea when or if it'll happen; just keep crossing those fingers.
This week, we want your take on the recently released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 . It didn't receive an overly favorable response from critics (basically averages a low-to-mid 6) but there are many who oppose such an average reception. Do you think the game is better than the scores? Or do you agree that it was a significant disappointment?
