Final Fantasy 7 Remake is still having a long way to go but producer Yoshinori Kitase already has Final Fantasy 8 Remake in his mind already.

"If the youth that inherits the genes of Final Fantasy can step up and do it, then I’d like to see it made."

In an interview with Famitsu, Yoshinori Kitase said that The Final Fantasy 7 Remake project was his idea since he wants to see a modern version of Final Fantasy 7 while he is still at Square Enix. It seems that Final Fantasy 7  Remake will be his last project before his retirement. As for Final Fantasy 8, he would like to have the youth of Square Enix to do it instead. To put it in another way, he wants to see Final Final 8 Remake to become true too if anyone in the company steps up and takes charge, but he won't be directly involved in it.

Last month, Square Enix introduced to players a remastered version of Final Fantasy 8 to celebrate its 20th anniversary. However, the version wasn't very welcomed by fans. Characters' models have been remastered to have wonderful quality and texture, but that was it. All the backgrounds remain the same and look really blurry on the high-resolution PC display which doesn't fit with new characters' models at all. There are a lot of bugs and FPS problems too, preventing players from fully enjoying the game.

With all the experience that Square Enix has gained from developing and marketing Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Final Fantasy 8 Remake will be a great game if Final Fantasy 8 Remake project actually happens.
