New Final Fantasy VII Remake Trailer Reveals Gameplay and More

Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming in 2020, and Square Enix has released a new trailer at the Tokyo Game Show, giving us a look at some of the characters and gameplay.

Teenagers with crazy haircuts, a shadowy oppressive regime, absurdly large swords… Honestly I could be referring to 90% of JRPGs right now, but I’m talking about the Final Fantasy VII Remake!

A new trailer shown at Tokyo Game Show 2019 shows us some of the chaos that takes place deep in the slums of Midgar, as Cloud Strife and the eco-warrior resistance group Avalanche faces the greedy and sinister Shinra Electric Power Company.

Fans of the original Final Fantasy VII will find some of these scenes familiar, but seeing these classic characters rendered in glorious high definition is just a whole new experience. We also get to see some of the hybrid combat system, which fuses real-time action with strategic turn-based gameplay.

If you’re new to the Final Fantasy series but you’re interested in the upcoming remake, it’s worth noting that this is a standalone experience, which you can jump into without any prior knowledge of the other games in the franchise.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming to the PlayStation 4 on March 3rd 2020, but can be pre-ordered now from the Square Enix Online Store, in either the standard edition, deluxe edition or 1st class edition. If your pre-order any version of the game from select retailers, you will also receive the Chocobo Chick Summon Materia DLC at launch.

Check out the new trailer below, or for more details on the game you can go to the official website.

"Cynical", "sarcastic" and "irritable" are just some of the words that have been used to describe Diggy B, the other words usually being four letters long and incredibly rude. He can normally be found with a controller in his hands and strives to provide acerbic rants on all things gaming, from Gears of War to Candy Crush.
