Final Fantasy VII Remake
Final Fantasy VII Remake is an upcoming action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4. The game is a remake of the 1997 PlayStation game Final Fantasy VII. Square Enix plans to release the game in episodic installments, with the first scheduled for release on April 10, 2020.
Players control mercenary Cloud Strife as he and eco-terrorist group AVALANCHE battle the corrupt Shinra megacorporation and the legendary soldier Sephiroth. The gameplay combines real-time action similar to Dissidia Final Fantasy with other strategic elements.
The remake was announced following years of fan requests and rumors. Key staff members returned, including character designer Tetsuya Nomura as director and main character designer, director Yoshinori Kitase as producer, and writer Kazushige Nojima. They also added content and redesigned the characters to balance realism and stylization.
Final Fantasy VII Remake retells the story of the original Final Fantasy VII. Players control Cloud Strife, a former Shinra soldier who joins the AVALANCHE eco-terrorist group as a mercenary to fight the Shinra Corporation, who have been draining the planet's life energy. The game is a full remake with fully polygonal graphics, as opposed to the pre-rendered environments of the original.
