The Final Fantasy 7 Remake has largely been in production for years. The highly-anticipated reimagining has gone through development troubles and as games become bigger and better, they also take longer to make. Now that Square Enix has finished development on Kingdom Hearts 3, many fans speculated that development focus would transition to Final Fantasy 7. Since the teaser was revealed on stream, it looks like those assumptions were well-founded. Check out the trailer below:
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake was initially showcased during Sony’s 2015 E3 presentation. It was revealed that the game would be created by the team at CyberConnect2. Development was then transitioned internally at Square Enix, and the game is currently targeted to be released in multiple parts. Director Yoshinori Katase has gone on record to state that each entry will flesh out areas (such as Midgar) past the original title. More info is teased to come in June.
The PlayStation State of Play is the newest way Sony have been trickling out announcements. Prior to this, the company was announcing software and hardware at E3 and the currently-defunct PlayStation Experience. Effectively a Nintendo Direct style presentation chock-full of announcements with surprises around every corner. What will reemerge next? Maybe Capcom’s Deep Down will return. Stick around as we’ll have more news as it comes out on this site.
