The long-awaited remake of Final Fantasy 7 will be released for PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020, Square Enix confirmed on Sunday ahead of E3 2019. A brief new trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake was also released.
The release date for Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced by game director Tetsuya Nomura himself at a Final Fantasy concert in Los Angeles. Nomura said Square Enix will be making further announcements about Final Fantasy 7 Remake on Monday, June 10, likely at the publisher’s press conference.
The new trailer for FF7 Remake is short and features many of the characters and locations we’ve seen in previous trailers, but offers a closer look at the game’s action. Square Enix also released new artwork for the game featuring antagonist Sephiroth standing in front of a burning Midgar skyline.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake was officially announced way back in 2015 at Sony’s E3 press conference. Since then, it’s undergone some changes — including a switch in developers — and a long period of silence from Square Enix. Game director Tetsuya Nomura said at one point that the remake was announced a bit too early, but it sounds like we’re finally nearing a release.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is planned as an episodic release, so while we’re getting our hands on the remake early next year, we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the fully remade game in its entirety.
