Final Fantasy VII: Remake. Details to Come


Share on

Tetsuya Nomura, best known for directing the first part of Final Fantasy VII, has revealed more details about the game’s prospects during a live stream largely meant for the Japanese audience. After a long period of vagueness and silence, Square Enix has finally come up with some kind of forecast or commitment, although it’s still not quite clear what it refers to. According to Nomura, June will be the month when news about Final Fantasy VII: Remake is finally released. To be more specific, it hasn’t been confirmed that the announcement will have something to do with the long-awaited sequel, but it seems only natural to assume that.

Given that Square Enix decided not to reveal the full story when the first part was released, it’s understandable that the audience is speculating a lot about the remake and its parts. Back in 1997, Final Fantasy VII was first released for PlayStation, which was the beginning of the series. It took three separate discs to deliver the full story to the public, which was by that time hungry for details. Today’s remake tells the familiar story of Cloud, Aerith, Barret, and Tifa once again in an attempt to reanimate the once-much-loved RPG.
This is clearly a nostalgic endeavor that is unlikely to leave old fans unmoved.

That’s pretty much all we know about Final Fantasy VII: Remake so far. We can’t even be sure about the name because it hasn’t been announced officially; this is just the colloquial name by which the game goes now. What remains is to wait until the end of June and see what the nostalgia-inspired remake is going to look like, or at least get a limited insight into it.
