Watch the Tokyo Game Show Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer here

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.

  1. The more they show, the more it looks like it’s not what anyone wanted.

    Replace the original turn based combat with FF15 combat. Only get the first part of the game? (The first, and worst, of the original’s 3 discs). And worst of all, pre-order to get 1 of the summons, and get another 1 (or possibly 2, it’s confusing) with the deluxe edition.

    • I haven’t played FF15, but from what I’ve heard this is its own system closer to turn based roots (there’s a decent playstation access video showing the whole mako reactor demo with a good look at the combat). I love the original system and haven’t enjoyed any FF since 10 because of them moving away from it, but I’m hopeful for this.

      Locking anything behind DLC pay walls is just not on though.
