This one seems a bit too good to be true. nyxojaele of the Caves of Narshe forums has revealed that he's attempting to make a Final Fantasy VI 3D remake for the PSP. It originally started as an original project for the PC, but once he got his hands on the LTE game engine for PSP homebrew, there was no turning back. He's been very detailed about the process so far, showing screenshots, 3D models and more. A YouTube video he created supposedly shows him launching the game intro using the recently discovered TIFF exploit. Here's what he had to say:

"My game is now being ported over to the PSP... The engine I'm now using is called LTE game engine. It's a PSP conversion of the wellknown "Irrlicht" engine for the PC. Since this is a (semi)fullblown GAME engine, instead of just a rendering engine, it'll also save me LOADS of time programming things, such as a sound driver, etc... So, in the last 2-ish weeks, I've been porting my game into the LTE engine, and at the same time, porting it over to the PSP. All is going well, it's just taking time. I have a lot of the internal framework done now, and have started on something you can actually SEE. This is where the fun comes: I've recorded a video of me booting up my PSP, and playing a teaser trailer of my game."
Is this all real? Or is it one, incredibly elaborate hoax? I want to believe, and I'm throwing all my support for nyxojaele. Good luck.
