The Return Draws Closer.

Square Enix announced today that the Final Fantasy that introduced people to the franchise has a release date! Final Fantasy VII Remake will hit PlayStation 4 first on March 3rd 2020.

Rebuilding and expanding upon the legendary RPG for today, Final Fantasy VII Remake tells the story of a world 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.

Alongside the release date, new key art featuring the game’s icon Mummy’s boy villain, Sephiroth, set against a burning Midgar skyline was also unveiled during the Final Fantasy VII – A Symphonic Reunion concert at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles as you can see above.
