This weekend, Square Enix are planning to share some new details on Final Fantasy 7 Remake it has been confirmed. On February 13th there will be a live orchestra broadcast featuring music from the game – it’s sure to be quite the performance though Final Fantasy fans have been teased with an exclusive reveal. The event is only accessible to those in Japan who purchased a ticket for the show, Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s co-director, Motomu Toriyama, announcing that there will be a special section in which new information on the game is shared with viewers.
This news comes via the official Square Enix Music Twitter account with tweets being translated by Final Fantasy enthusiast, Audrey.
FF7R Co-Director Toriyama’s message about the upcoming FF7R Orchestra Concert is VERY interesting. He mentions there will be a special small section of the concert where he will talk about some info about FF7R revealed only during the concert 👀

With this being an orchestra – and one that’s only being shown in Japan – the FF fandom have been speculating as to how big the reveal could be. However, Audrey points out that in the build up to Saturday’s show (which will begin at 5PM JST), it looks like Square are bringing key developers on board to help hype the forthcoming announcement including producer Yoshinori Kitase. In a previous Final Fantasy orchestra event, attendees were the first to see the E3 2019 extended trailer before it was later shown at the publisher’s own press conference.
It’s very unlikely that we will hear news of a sequel this weekend. With the PS4 12-month exclusivity period about to expire on Final Fantasy VII Remake, our money is on the reveal of additional versions coming to Xbox One and PC with an enhanced edition or upgrade coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake scored an unstoppable 10 out of 10 in our review, fusing what made the original game so special with some truly clever modernisation. Here’s how Tuffcub capped off his review:
An utter joy to play from start to finish, packed with memorable scenes, moustache-twirling baddies, and epic battles. The first part of Final Fantasy VII Remake isn’t just polished, it’s opulent.
Final Fantasy VII Remake went on to take the top gong in our Game of the Year showdown last year.
