During today’s State of Play show, Sony and Square Enix finally dropped new footage of the much-anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake. The trailer runs less than a minute, but that’s plenty given how long it’s been since we got any sort of substantial update on the project. We get a fresh look at the updated HD versions of a variety of beloved characters, including Cloud, Aerith, Barret, and Tifa, and a new peek at the game’s action-infused combat. Square Enix has insisted Final Fantasy VII Remake development is going “favorably,” and it looks like they were telling the truth! You can check out the trailer, below.
In other Final Fantasy VII Remake news, project lead Tetsuya Nomura provided a bit of an update, saying most of Square Enix’s pre-launch plans are already in place. More information about the game will be revealed sometime in June – possibly at E3 2019, although that hasn’t been specified.
