Final Fantasy VII Remake is happening, and the reveal trailer has finally arrived. You can pre-order the game from Amazon for $60.
Courtesy of GameSpot, we share with you the Final Fantasy VII Remake reveal trailer:
Square Enix has been working hard on their new releases after Kingdom Hearts 3’s premiere back in January. Final Fantasy 15 director is already working on an RPG title for next-gen consoles and, meanwhile, the Japanese studio reveals new FFVII Remake footage.
It’s the first thing we see of the highly anticipated title since the developers revealed the project back in 2015. It offers an exciting look at how the remake is turning. What do you think?
Final Fantasy VII Remake is back in development
FFVII Remake spent some time in the back burner. And by “some time” I mean at least four years. After a period of oblivion, Square Enix drops a short teaser during State of Play gaming conference and promises to say even more in June.
And, I think it looks great. Also, we should compare it with the old 2015 trailer:
The trailer shows footage from the initial portion of the game. We can see the main character, Cloud, and other members of terrorist organization AVALANCHE while they infiltrate a plant for the famous first mission of the game.
The initial sequence features the team bombing the plant to damage a global organization that’s putting a toll on oxygen.
The video also gives fans a glimpse of the game’s real-time battle system. The classic Final Fantasy VII features turn-based combat where players enter a particular stage every time they encounter an enemy. The new version has enemies roaming around while you and your team hack & slash your way into new skills, weapons, armors, and summons.
When is Final Fantasy VII Remake coming?
Square Enix is giving more details during 2019 E3 press conference on Monday, June 10. Furthermore, the company shared on its Twitter feed that everything is ready for the premiere, and it appears the studio will reveal an official release date next month.
Final Fantasy VII director Tetsuya Nomura is assuring fans won’t wait another four years for more information about the game.
What we do know, though, is that Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a PlayStation console exclusive. We can also assume the game will be cross-gen, which means there will be a version for the PlayStation 4 and a PlayStation 5 alternative. At least that would be a way to justify the long production period.
As we remember, Square Enix announced the remake in Sony’s E3 2015 presentation. Since then, details about its production had become so scarce that it almost became a myth. Fear not, Nomura is the proven director of Kingdom Hearts III.
Additionally, we share with you Square Enix is also working on the MediEvil remake, as well as Monster Hunter World’s Iceborn expansion and a new Predator title with heavy multiplayer features.
