While Square Enix has contemplated remaking "Final Fantasy VII," (http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2010/03/23/square-enix-to-explore-the-possibility-of-a-final-fantasy-vii-remake/) the director behind "The 3rd Birthday" and "Final Fantasy Agito XIII" would like to get a shot and porting "Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII" to the newly dated Nintendo 3DS (http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2010/09/29/nintendo-3ds-release-date-price/) even if his to-do list is already formidable.

"If I were to make something for 3DS, I suppose it would be a remake of 'Before Crisis Final Fantasy VII,'" Hajime Tabata stated on Twitter (http://twitter.com/3rd_birthday), as translated by Andriasang (http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/09/30/tabata_before_crisis/). "I'd redo the scenario structure and game design for the 3DS. I think I'd like to make an action RPG 'BCFF7' where a large number of Turks players play simultaneously."

Right now, the project is only a personal ambition for him and not an official company-backed initiative, but considering the "FFVII" spin-off for mobile devices has only been released in Japan as of right now, it seems like a fine dream to cling to if they want to broaden its audience.

He also reportedly wants to work on an HD game next and hasn't had a chance to play around with a 3DS yet, so a "Before Crisis" remake for the device sounds like it's probably just a twinkle in his eye at the moment maybe even just a ray of light on its way to his eye to produce a twinkle.

The chance to commandeer a small army of Turks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turks_(Final_Fantasy_VII)#Turks) would be a nice gift to the U.S. FF fan community, though, so if we're lucky perhaps he's at least jotted this concept down on a note and put it up on a bulletin board in the SE offices somewhere. Then, when he's done with his other work in a decade, we may see this dream realized.
