Square Enix opened their E3 2019 Press Conference with the original title screen for Final Fantasy VII with the classic options and one extra option, “Remake?”
“Remaking Final Fantasy VII has allowed us to dive much deeper into the world and its characters than ever before,” Yoshinori Kitase said on stage. “The game design was optimized for this title as well, and we anticipate two Blu-ray discs worth of gameplay content. The first game in this project expands on the story of Midgar, and is such an elaborate retelling that it has become a solid standalone game in its own right.”
They showed off an extended trailer and gameplay footage for the battle system and the Guard Scorpion boss battle which you can check out below.
