    Square Enix's producer announced via Twitter today that the reason DS remakes of Final Fantasy 5 and 6 haven't happened was due to "technical issues". What a random and vague response-

    “For FF5 and 6, there are technical issues as well, so at present these are also undecided.” - Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto

    Well it might be a crap reason with no logic, but i think it's pretty clear- don't expect either game on the system. According to Gonintendo, the word "also" was in reference to a possible Seiken Densetsu 3 remake on DS (ARRRGGH!!!)... This sucks a tremendous amount, especially with reference to SD3, which has never been released in the US and is one of the best in the Mana series. [​IMG]

    Maybe they're just waiting for 3DS though... Or even iPhone or PSP2. [​IMG]

    In fact, I'm happy FFVI will not be made.
    Not that it's wrong, but because a lot of people would only know the new 3D remake without playing original.
    I'm maybe nostalgic, but I usually prefer original works.

    Remakes can be good, but I'm too exigent.

    It's probably just because it's too late in the console's lifespan.

    Really though, I think the GBA versions are better than the DS ones in this regard. FFIV felt terrible on the DS but was good on the GBA. I have no idea why but it just did.

    Prowler, did you even READ this topic? No? Didn't think so... And stop posting in all caps.

    Assuming they move onto 3DS, it would be interesting to see remakes for that system. If the "Gamecube graphics" happen, it would look fantastic.

    Wait, what's this? Rumour on a remake, by SQUARE?
    My post is pretty valid. I was just posting my feelings on Square making remakes.

    No, of course i didn't read a topic I made, that would be absolutely ludicrous. >_>

    Your point is completely moot since they said they probably AREN'T going to remake these games. Why are you complaining when they just did something you are happy with? Kids these days...

    Therefore, the possibility of a remake is still there.
    What is the harm in my post? You're the only one having a bitch about it.

    I hate related Square Enix threads, it's like everyone is out for each other.

    Your post was annoying, irrelevant, and unnecessary. That's why i attacked it. And if you want to complain, go email Square Enix about it, and STOP YELLING ABOUT IT HERE (that's what caps are for). They definitely aren't going to come here (a pirate community) looking for opinions about their games. And if you hate Square Enix related threads, don't post in them. I attacked your post because it was in all caps and just annoying. Square Enix bashing here is annoying and makes you look retarded, go take it to a site who cares. And don't accuse me of being a fanboy, i don't even care about having FF 5 and 6 remade. I would however, be interested in a remake of Seiken Densetsu 3 due to it being one of the best Mana games in the series, never been released outside of Japan, and it would be the first good Mana game in years. They've ruined the series.

    It's pretty clear what this report meant. The odds of getting these remakes on the DS are almost 0. They didn't outright deny it because fan feedback would really annoy them. And the technical issues is an easy argument to use to get out of responsibility.

    As it is, Square Enix makes what sells. People buy what they make, so they make more of it. You can blame only one group for their games being "bad"- the gaming community. If people stopped buying their games, they would be forced to change strategies and make other kinds of games, otherwise they'd die.

    STOP THE FUCKING RAGE, okay? Jeeze... Both of you are acting like little children.

    Ontopic: meh, FFV was good so it would be sad to not see a remake, but I didn't like FFVI at all, so I don't care about it.

    @haters: Squeenix can do as they like and make as many remakes as they think is good for them (and it is, because lots of people buy them).

    Your post was annoying AND irrelevant, and technically against the rules seeing as you're not supposed to post in all caps. Why would you even complain since they're apparently doing what you wanted them to do? Try again.

    And although i admit that what i said was an opinion, it is relevant to this thread, it's not annoying anyone, and it's actually a fact considering everyone knows they've destroyed the mana series. So it's not even really an opinion (maybe those who LIKE the new games would think it was, but whatever).

    I mostly attacked your post because it was annoying. And i don't find it is relevant. So say what you want. Stop posting in caps though, and stop acting like Square Enix actually listens to you.

    And hush Overlord, this is above you. [​IMG]

    Haha, I have to choose your side though, mainly because that first post by dean is standard /b/ stuff. Only allowed in EoF and blogs. (and even then...)
