While Final Fantasy VI will be released to smartphones this winter, fans may have to wait awhile for the next game in the series to come out.
In a recent interview with Shacknews, Final Fantasy producer Takashi Tokita said that “Unfortunately, it’s not that it’s not impossible for us to develop Final Fantasy VII for mobile, it’s that currently, space will be an issue. Phones won’t be able to contain the space it takes. It’s over a gigabyte. People are probably going to have to wait a few years.”
While the first six games were all from the 2D-era, VII changed the formula by making a full 3D-world, resulting in one of PlayStation’s most popular titles.
