Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has revealed reasons as to why Final Fantasy VII won't be getting the remake fans are screaming out for.

"This issue is related to whether a Final Fantasy 7 remake will happen or not," Kitase told Ultimania magazine. "It is very hard to make games on PlayStation 3 in the same style as the games in that era had. Making graphics will take enormous time."

A Final Fantasy VII remake has been heavily rumoured ever since a Square Enix technical demo depicting the game as it would look on PS3 was shown back in 2006.

Final Fantasy XIII will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 on March 9.
