The time has finally come… the Final Fantasy VII remake will debut first on PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020, Square Enix announced during a concert for the legendary JRPG that we hold so dear to our hearts. In addition, Square Enix shared a new trailer for the game.
That’s not all, we’ll be seeing so much more of it during Square Enix’s E3 2019 conference happening tomorrow. To say we’re excited would be an understatement — right now, our Limit gauge is filled to the MAX.
The remake, which is called Final Fantasy VII Remake, was first announced at E3 2015. Just last month, we were given a trailer, which shows how much of a visual and gameplay upgrade the game has received since we first checked it out in 2015. When the last trailer was released, we had many questions, which of course are still relevant today. The two biggest questions we have are: “Will the remake be an episodic series as previously planned?” and “Will there be a turn-based combat option?”. Since Square Enix will be having a conference revealing more details for the title, we expect our questions will be answered very soon.
Just like the original Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VII Remake will tell the story of a corrupted world fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, and throughout the story, goes on epic adventures with an unforgettable cast of characters.
