Square Enix has launched the final trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake ahead of the game’s launch on April 10, and it’s pretty meaty, clocking in at over 4 minutes. It’s packed full of cutscene footage too, so be warned, there’s quite a few spoilers in the video.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Final Trailer
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is going to remain exclusive to the PlayStation 4 for 12 months, after which it’ll be free to launch for other formats. While the game’s release date is officially April 10, Square Enix is shipping copies of the game early in Europe and Australia.
In addition, the game’s pre-load date has been bumped forward, so you can now get the digital version of the game ready for action come launch day.
However, Amazon has warned its customers this week that pre-orders for the physical version of the game may face delays. Square Enix hasn’t specified how many parts the entire Final Fantasy 7 Remake will encompass, but it has said that development of those extra episodes will be more efficient.
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.
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.
Here’s a blurb for the game:
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
