Final Fantasy 7 Remake Demo Inbound
Here’s what the site had to say:
A Final Fantasy VII Remake demo is scheduled for March 3 on PS4. Due to a recent leak, a ton of details are emerging around the game, so if you don’t want to get spoiled, we highly encouraged staying away from anything remotely related to the demo.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020, and will be exclusive to Sony’s current-generation console for a year.
In case you haven’t been keeping up, the game covers the Midgar portion of the original game, but it’s been expanded considerably to accommodate two Blu-ray discs. You can also expect to see more on the characters of Biggs, Wedge, and Jesse this time around.
Given the proximity to the PS5‘s release next holiday season, it’s pretty much all but guaranteed we’ll see future instalments (and possibly the first part) on Sony’s next-generation system. Let’s just hope it’s not another five year-wait, eh?
The original version of Final Fantasy 7 was released back in 1997 for the PSOne, and has sold over 11 million copies worldwide. The game also helped the series gain more exposure in western regions, and is considered one of the best video games of all time.
Final Fantasy fans, however, may argue that Final Fantasy 8, 10, or 6 is a superior game, although for many (myself included), it was their first introduction to the franchise.
