For almost five years, Square Enix has been working on the Final Fantasy VII remake. Sony teased the upcoming release during the company’s “State of Play” presentation on Thursday, dropping a new video that previews the updated graphics and art-design for the highly anticipated game.
The publisher teased the video on social media adding, “Key staff from the original release have come together to bring you Final Fantasy VII Remake. With its epic story, captivating characters, and cutting edge technology that defined an era, the beloved classic that won the hearts of many is finally ready to be reborn.”
On Twitter, through the game’s official account, Tetsuya Nomura told fans, “Most of the plans are already in place in the run up to launch, so please bear with us a little longer until we can release more information next month.”
While rumors circulated months before its announcement, Sony introduced the remake at E3 2015. The game has gone through development hurdles since then, and the director agreed that Square Enix announced the project too soon. The video below shows just how far the developers have come over the last five years and the parts of the game that we can see look impressive. The promotional video shows a mix of cutscenes and gameplay, with moments from the Shinra Mako reactor in Midgar and Cloud meeting Aerith Gainsborough in the streets as she is selling flowers.
Soon players can join up with Barret, Tifa, Red XIII, Cait Sith, Yuffie, Cid, Vincent, and the rest of the crew to save the world all over again.
More information on the “Final Fantasy VII” remake is expected to be announced at E3 next month.
