Just as an aside, can anyone else think of a video game where an power supplier is the bad guys? Maybe the Hive in Destiny 2 are actually British Gas employees.
Anyway, in the new video we get our first look Shinra’s goons, The Turks, along with a variety of mini-games and – huzzah – a very brief look at Shiva and Ifrit!
The editing of the trailer it’s really quite frantic so it’s quite hard to follow what’s going on, we get about a second of a scene before it cuts to something else so prepare your brain for overload.
A few weeks ago Xbox Germany Facebook page had posted a video which listed Final Fantasy VII Remake for Xbox One with a release date of March 3rd 2020, the same date that has been announced for the PlayStation 4 version.
Marketing Communications & Social Lead for Xbox Germany, Maxi Graff, took to Twitter to give an explanation. “We did an internal mistake in the Social Team,” he Tweeted, “We took the video off immediately. Sorry, no announcement on our side. Big apologies for this.”
In a statement to IGN, Square Enix said “As previously announced, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 3rd 2020. We have no plans for other platforms.”
So there you go, Final Fantasy VII Remake is 100% exclusive to PlayStation 4, at least at launch. The days of Square Enix releasing games solely on PlayStation platforms is long gone so we do expect the game to eventually show up on other platforms, but as the old trailers suggested, if you want to play it first you’re going to need Sony’s console.
