‘Final Fantasy VII: Remake’ Release Date, Latest News & Update: Reimagining to Come Out in December 2019?
“Final Fantasy VII: Remake” is speculated to hit the shelves sometime between 2020 and 2022. However, fans who have been religiously waiting for the title have been shocked that the game could very well come out as early as Dec. 19.
The news came in the form of an email from Amazon with the message received by those who have already pre-ordered the game. While this could be taken as legitimate news by some, it’s likely that the email wasn’t referring to the release date of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake.”
After all, only Square Enix will be the only reliable source regarding this sort of announcement and the studio hasn’t confirmed anything just yet. There’s also the fact that the studio is still hard at work in building the foundations of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake.” It’s already been announced that most of the work that’s been done by CyberConnect2 – the developers initially tasked to create the title – has been scrapped.
Fortunately, development of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake” seems to be making significant headway given that “Kingdom Hearts 3” is already finished. Game director Tetsuya Nomura also said that their progress is going “favorably” at the moment and no major obstacles have plagued the developers’ work so far.
As for what’s going to be included in “Final Fantasy VII: Remake,” the plot of the original title will be followed by the reimagining with Cloud Strife acting as the main protagonist. He’ll be aided by Barret, Tifa Lockhart, and the rest of the AVALANCHE members in their attempt at putting an end to the evil Shinra Megacorporation.
While Square Enix is remaining true for the title’s story, the same could not be said for the playstyle mechanic of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake.” The original game implemented the iconic ATB (Action Time Battle) playstyle, but the reimagining is going to run on a real-time battle sequence.
Nomura said that they’ve opted for such a drastic change in order to provide a sense of “realism” for gamers. However, the decision polarized the fan-base of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake,” with some calling the alteration a huge mistake.
