Fan Remakes Final Fantasy 7 with the UDK

Final Fantasy 7 is a classic that a lot of gamers hold close to their hearts while they hope and prey for a remake. Unfortunately, Square has stated that it would take too long from them to attempt a remake. While a lot of us were disappointed, and our hopes and dreams were crushed by Sqaure’s disappointing remark, one fan took it upon himself to start remaking the game using the Unreal 3 Engine.

The video below shows the progress of the mod, but be warned that it is a very early WIP (work in progress), so game elements such as assets and animations are not finished.

Furthermore, the mod author has his own website at: ff7remake.hostoi.com. Unfortunately, he has not gained permission from Square for the remake. Below is a statement from the website that has been translated in the video:

FFVII REMAKE is a learning project made by the fans and for the fans. It is not approved or supported by Square Enix Ltd. the creators of the original videogame Final Fantasy VII. All rights are reserved. Marketing is strictly prohibited, as well as any economic benefits from this project both directly and indirectly.
