Final Fantasy VII Remake Game's Teaser Trailer Streamed (Updated)
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
PlayStation's State of Play livestream presentation revealed a teaser trailer for the Final Fantasy VII Remake PlayStation 4 game on Thursday. Square Enix will reveal more information about the game in June.
Game director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed in an interview in November that the remake is 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 president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda revealed in 2017 that the game is slated for release in about the next three years.
Square Enix announced the Final Fantasy VII remake in 2015.
Square's original Final Fantasy VII game debuted for PlayStation in 1997.
Update: Added Japanese video.
Update 2: Square Enix stated in a Japanese news post for the game on Friday, "production is underway on the work as multiple parts." IGN reached out to Square Enix to ask if this means the game will still be released as a multi-part series as previously announced, and Square Enix's response was to direct IGN to a press release from December 2015, which states that the game "will be told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience."
