After many years waiting and watching, it was just announced at the Sony livestream that Final Fantasy VII is being remade, playable first on Playstation 4. Although a release date was not announced, news of the remake’s development could not have come at a better time. In 2017 not only will we be celebrating the 20th birthday of the original Final Fantasy VII, but the 30th anniversary of the series.
We can all hope they are aiming for release during that auspicious year, but for now Square Enix hasn’t shared what stage of development they are in. (Other than simply saying they’ve begun) As seen in the trailer below, Yoshinori Kitase returns as Producer, with Nomura Tetsuya as his director and Kazushige Nojima as the scenario writer. We will bring more on this title as it develops, hopefully with some new information during Square Enix’s own conference being held tomorrow.
The official website has opened with a teaser here and promises more information coming this Winter.
