Final Fantasy VII remade on PS3! ...In LittleBigPlanet 2

If you're a Square Enix fan and you own a PS3, chances are you'd drool over the prospect of a high-def remake of the defining RPG known as Final Fantasy VII. Well, your dreams have kind of come true, only not really.

Even though LittleBigPlanet 2 hasn't even been released yet, some fame-seeking beta tester has already taken advantage of the game's new game-creation tools to make his own version of Final Fantasy VII.

The game opens with a Cloud Strife version of Sackboy, and goes on to introduce such familiar FFVII staples as the overworld map, chocobos, and even a very menacing-looking Sephiroth. That is, as menacing as any Sackboy can look (though try as you might, Sackboy will never not be cute).

The game's creator is apparently also working on recreating the classic turn-based battle system. Kinda makes the original LitteBigPlanet seems really limited, doesn't it?

So, we're probably never going to see a full-fledged version of Final Fantasy VII remade in full, glorious fashion, but with people like this ambitious LittleBigPlanet fan, at least the legacy will never die.
