PS4 game launches worldwide on March 3, 2020
Square Enix began streaming on Wednesday the Tokyo Game Show trailer for its Final Fantasy VII Remake game. The trailer unveils the Turks members Reno, Rude, and Tseng, and the character Don Corneo. The trailer also shows new gameplay footage including mini-games and the Ifrit and Shiva summons.
The game will launch worldwide on PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020. Square Enix did not confirm if the release is for the entire game or for the first part.
The game will have Deluxe, Digital Deluxe, and 1st Class Editions. The Deluxe Edition contains an art book, a mini-soundtrack CD, and a DLC Materia for Cactuar. The Digital Deluxe Edition will contain a digital art book, a digital mini-soundtrack CD, and a DLC Materia for Carbuncle and Cactuar. The 1st Class Edition includes all the content from the Deluxe Edition, a DLC Materia for Carbuncle, as well as a Play Arts Kai figure named "Cloud Strife and Hardy Daytona." People who pre-order the game will receive a DLC Materia for Chocobo Chick. Digital pre-orders will also include a theme for the PS4 menu.
Tetsuya Nomura confirmed in an interview last November that the remake was the next PR priority for Square Enix after the release of Kingdom Hearts III this past January. Nomura is returning to the remake game as its director after serving as the character designer for the original game, and Kazushige Nojima is also returning to write the scenario.
Square Enix stated in a Japanese news post for the game in May, "production is underway on the work as multiple parts."
Square Enix announced the Final Fantasy VII remake in 2015.
Square's original Final Fantasy VII game debuted for PlayStation in 1997.
