Game developer Square Enix has finally shown another snippet of their most hotly anticipated game. That’s right, the Final Fantasy VII Remake Trailer was finally shown off again for the first time in three years.
Square Enix showed a teaser trailer for the game at the PlayStation State of Play event, which shows off new game announcements for the platform. The teaser is brief at just over a minute long, but it does show some gameplay as well as bits of the iconic story. Cloud, Aerith (Aeris), Barret, Jessie, and Sephiroth all make appearances.
The game was first shown at E3 2015, but has reportedly been in development hell as Square Enix brought development in-house after CyberConnect2 botched it. The result has been a delayed game that’s had to be re-designed from scratch.
For their part, Square Enix isn’t giving away too much here. They’re promising more information next month at E3, but it's unknown whether or not they’re going to be giving us a release date. FF7 Remake will reportedly be episodic in nature, potentially helping to keep the game from being pushed out too long.
For those of you who’ve been under a rock for the last two decades, Final Fantasy VII is arguably the most successful RPG in video game history. It launched in 1997 and was a smashing hit globally, becoming one of the first Japanese RPGs to be a phenomenon in the United States. To date, the game has sold more than 11 million copies across the various platforms it has been released on.
Needless to say, we’re really looking forward to this game and hope that we’re not in hospice by the time it launches.
