Final Fantasy VII Remake gets a release date.
News on the Final Fantasy VII Remake has been slow since the game got announced in 2015. While we know several tidbits, like it will be release episodic; there has been rarely any gameplay shown off.
Recently, a new teaser for the Final Fantasy VII Remake was released, showing off new gameplay footage. The teaser promises more information in June, with many fans assuming more details will come in E3 or at the Final Fantasy VII A Symphonic Reunion concert.
The Final Fantasy VII A Symphonic Reunion happened today, and a new trailer was released. The new trailer showed off new gameplay footage and cutscenes. All of it is still focused on the opening bombing mission of the opening game, though there are some new scenes.
Interestingly, a scene in the Remake between Cloud and Aerith has changed compared to the original Final Fantasy VII. Aerith starts panicking, and black mists surround her and Cloud. A scene like that never happened in the original VII, implying that the Remake will make drastic changes to the story.
The trailer ends with a big surprise; the release date for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. The trailer states that the game is expected to release on the PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
Furthermore, Square Enix has released an official image of Sephiroth showing his face. Sephiroth is one of the most iconic video game villains ever, so this was no doubt a big reveal for the company.
More Final Fantasy VII Remake news will be revealed tomorrow, presumably at Square Enix’s E3 live stream. Their showcase will begin at 6 PM PST tomorrow.
