The long-awaited FF7 remake is coming next year.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released March 3, 2020.
During a Final Fantasy VII concert in Los Angeles, Square Enix showed a teaser trailer for the FF7 remake, which announced the release date of March 3 next year at the end, confirming a PS4-exclusive release. Square asked fans to stay tuned for more during the Square Enix E3 2019 press conference.
The trailer features footage from the Midgar set portion of the game, predominately of AVALANCHE'S first Mako reactor bombing run. The guard scorpion battle is shown, with Cloud using Cross Slash limit break and Barret using Big Shot. We get a short look at the duo fighting Shinra's various defense forces, and it looks like the idiosyncratic designs from the original are all present and correct
The trailer did not make it clear whether this release date will be for just the first episode of the game, or if Square has decided to release the remake in full, rather than the previously announced episodic plan.
Final Fantasy VII Remake was first revealed at E3 2015, but was re-revealed last month during a PlayStation State of Play livestream, boasting new character models, combat and more. That re-reveal was likely down to the game shifting from an external developer to an in-house Square Enix team.
That shift hasn't changed one of Remake's more controversial choices - this remains an episodic game last we heard.
Square Enix also confirmed that Kingdom Hearts 3's ReMIND DLC is set for a winter release.
