    I've never heard of this, but I highly doubt this is true.

    I don't think it's true...

    But i would love to see that FF7 game that's coming out for mobile phone to be ported to Nintendo DS.

    The only FFVII game coming is FFVII: Crisis Core which is a prequel, but its only for PSP. I would expect to see a remake of FFVII for PS2 before I see it going to either DS or PSP(Although SONY is working on an Official Emu to Run PS1 games for PSP.....)

    who would care ff7 is outdated, and why get an old game when you can get a newer one.

    Because FF7 is one of the best RPGs I've ever played. I'd love to play it on my DS.

    Just on hardware limitations, would the DS even be able to handle anything close to FF7?

    I guess I underestimate the DS a little.

    Homebrew would run into legality issues. Nintendo can't do it cause they only have FF licenses to crystal chronicles and the ones not on sony.

    Would be nice though.

    yer i thought as much just thought i'd ask incase. and off course DS could handle FF7 man [​IMG] the only thing that will limit it (does that even make sense)is the space of the cards, theres no way they can fit the game on it now.

    anyways now that the topic has started, does anyone know if theres any homebrew FF game AT ALL, even if its not out yet but being woked on. just a quick original game featuring FF characters, even if its like a platformer with cloud or squall or some crap, i'd love to play one.

    the game would have to be redone like Xenosaga was in order to have a version for the DS.

    but maybe it was posted on drunkencoders months ago...
    since nothing new has been posted I think the project died...

    As far I know, the author has canned it, at least to the public's knowledge:
    http://www.sylphds.net/ev2/contentview.php?id=358

    The last thread about it on GBAdev was locked by his request.

    He didn't want Square-Enix to send him a cease and desist order like what happened to the famous Chrono Trigger Resurrection remake project. If he's still working on it, I doubt he'll say anything until he's ready to release something.

    Quite wrong. Excluding FMVs, the game is only around 244 MB big (as the WHOLE GAME is on EVERY disc - excluding FMVs). The game is also very old, meaning the compression used on it is quite outdated. And even if they'd keep the compression the same, they would only need a 2048 Mbit-Card, which is only twice as big as any current DS game.

    There's actually a Final Fantasy 7 for DS, but it's a remake by NINTENDO, not a port.

    That's Final Fantasy III not Final Fantasy VII.

    Guy, cool it. You had said that there is a FFVII game (seaming to imply that it is already out).
    I naturally assumed you were confusing FFVII with FFIII.

    Edit: That's FFXII not FFVII; so by all technicalities, you're wrong.
