[UPDATE] Final Fantasy VII Remake “New Contents” to Be Revealed This Week, Co-Director Confirms


[Update] @aitaikimochi provided clarification on the message shared by Final Fantasy VII Remake co-director Motomu Toriyama's message, saying that the new information to be shared this weekend is not necessarily a new announcement.

New Final Fantasy VII Information to Be Shared Next Month to Celebrate Game’s 25th Anniversary, Tetsuya Nomura Confirms

[Original Story] New details on Final Fantasy VII Remake "new contents" will be revealed later this week, the game's co-director confirmed today.

Speaking in a new video message, Motomu Toriyama confirmed, as translated by @aitaikimochi, that a "few Final Fantasy VII Remake contents" will be revealed during the Orchestra World Tour concert, which will be streamed later this week, on February 13th.

The fact that something something new regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake is brewing was hinted by the fact that a message from producer Yoshinori Kitase was confirmed to be shared during the concert last week.

What actually is going to be announced, it is hard to say at the moment. Last month, a very reliable insider talked about a PlayStation 5 upgrade which is supposedly getting revealed this month.

Square announcements are piling up. We're getting XIV's next expansion's reveal next month and VIIR PS5 & Life is Strange 3 should be soon after.

Thing is, talking "when" is tricky due to the current circumstances. Games that were targeting this quarter for release as late as last summer didn't even get trailers since. So I can never be too sure about when something is announced/released.

With that said, I believe we're getting these announcement sometime in February. I just can't be 100% sure about it.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is now available on PlayStation 4 worldwide. You can learn more about the game by checking out our review.

Remaking Final Fantasy VII properly is something that was always going to be very difficult to achieve. Everything considered, Square Enix did a good job with the first part, but the controversial ending is going to divide the fanbase: some will love it, some will hate it. It is undeniable, however, that the developer managed to make this feel like an epic journey just by using a small slice of the whole adventure.
