I'm still of the opinion that very few, if any entry in the series deserves to be called great. But that's not the point here. Besides, outside of a port I don't see the WiiU getting any numbered FF game.

@The_Fox: You're only just now STARTING to think that? I've thought that since before XIII launched.

And yeah, I agree with those saying that a new numbered FF on Wii U isn't too likely. I would hope they've learned to give up on Crystal Chronicles after how Crystal Bearer flopped so badly, but I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it another go anyway. Or they could make some new spin-off like they did with 4 Heroes of Light. I very much doubt Wii U will have NO Final Fantasy, at any rate.

If FF13 and the new Star Trek game launch with Wii U, I'll have a helluva time resisting buying one on launch day, haha.

Oh sweet. Time to start a group.

Possibilities, yes, but 4 Heroes of Light seems unlikely to me too - it wasn't a very well received game.

Simple solution? Chocobo Fables/ Chocobo Dungeon. That, or the Final Fantasy VII remake. I see that going to a Nintendo console first.

neither is any recent FF from what I've seen

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Crystal Bearers was atrocious. I pray that the Wii U doesn't go down the same route.

Sorry I probably should have said "and sold poorly."

I don't think Four Heroes of Light was a commercial success either. I could be wrong though, I didn't follow it too closely.

FFXIII sold very well, and was reasonably popular with critics (85% on gamerankings is right up there for the series). It was just polarising amongst the Final Fantasy fan base.

I want to see a reaction from people who wanted FFVII only to see it remade for another console besides Sony's- or even it going multiplatform.

I predict fanboy rage and claims of "FFVII belongs on Sony consoles!"

But that didn't stop past FF titles before VII to make it on other platforms even though the series started on the NES (as a gamble of "this may be our final game").

There's going to be lots of crying and screaming. And I'd love to watch that for my personal enjoyment :3

yea, but also more of a, "what? we are not going to have to remake the entire game for the wii as opposed to just doing small changes for ps3 and 360 versions? okay, our IPs will be releasing for it then."

as for final fantasy, if they did a true sequel to the original crystal chronicals on the wii u, it would be the best thing in the universe, second only to the same thing cross platform on the 3ds as well

actually I'd far prefer an original IP but you already know what I'm gonna say about original IPs and money and stupid people so I won't.

Yes, please. Square Enix's DS offerings proved that all the menus in RPG's work really well on touch screens.

Is the 3DS' cartridge size limit enough for VII, VIII and IX?

You can download those games to the PSP via PSN, and the originals (let alone remakes), are over a GB in size - IX is 1500 MB. I'm not sure if the 3DS cartridge can stetch that far, but it certainly means no 3D remake of those games.

How many times have V and VI been re-released? I could see the others getting reissues but let's not enable Squeenix too much.

V hasn't been rereleased very often at all - There was a PlayStation port, a GBA remake and a PS3 version via PSOne Classics.

That's nothing compared to Final Fantasy 1, for instance (Wii Virtual Console, PSOne, PS3, iPhone, iPad, GBA, PSP (Different from the PSOne remake)).

As long as SE keeps finding new ways to remake these games (3D remake, extra dungeons/ content etc etc) I don't mind these remakes - worst case scenario is I simply don't buy them, but at least they're there for people that do want them.
