Don't compare Xenoblade 2 quality with Final Fantasy 7 and Final 7 Remake. Even Xenoblade 1 cannot be compared to final fantasy 10 in terms of quality and sales.
On top of that making a remake is much more difficult rather then making new games. Please try your best argument again.
Emm... what do sales have to do with any of these? xDDDDDD
Anyways... I comparing them in terms of development. Xenoblade 2 and X are large open world games that obviously had quite a large development behind them. Also, although they look like they had a big budget behind, they were more of mild tier games in terms of money as said by Takahashi. And those and the expansion were developed in 7-8 years. Two open world games and a 30 hours expansion. And they are not any Jill or Joe open world games: they are regarded as some of the best JRPGs of this generation. Also they are new games, so unlike a remake, they have to do something called conceptual planning, script, music composing from scratch, character design from scratch... things that a remake don't have to do... or can borrow a lot of it from the original game. So no, a remake is not more difficult than a new game. Because remakes, even if they are as ambitious as FF VII, have a basis from where they can start.
Please, try again for a dolar. But do it on private, please. We were already called out by the mods.
