Kazuya Ninou, the director of the 7th Dragon series, wants to revisit the first entry in the series for a remake. He would also like to create a new installment in the franchise. Ninou shared these thoughts via his personal Twitter account.
According to Ninou, he already has the idea for a new game completely planned out in his head. He's hoping sharing this information will spur on some interest from developers/publishers out there.
The 7th Dragon franchise saw four installments, with the first releasing on DS, and the last releasing on 3DS. Sadly, the first game never received a release outside of Japan. The success of the Switch, when paired with the lack of localization for the original game, seems like the perfect reason to greenlight a remake.
