Final Fantasy VII Remake finally gets a release date

Sony and Square Enix finally announced when its long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake will be available. This may mean that the game will be a PS4 exclusive.

A remake was initially attempted in the early 2000s - but despite scoring the original Final Fantasy VII, Uematsu's name was absent from the originally announced team.

The legend himself returns: Japanese composer Nobuo Uematsu is confirmed to be scoring the upcoming "Final Fantasy VII Remake". I was introduced to the series with Final Fantasy IX, and over the last fifteen years I've gone back and played through every main franchise installment at one point or another up until Final Fantasy XIII. For this remake to do the original justice, then it really has to include all the content that made Final Fantasy 7 one of the most beloved games of all time.


Despite already revealing the FF7 Remake release date, Square Enix could follow up with another surprise or two during the show. Stay tuned for even more details-as well as all the latest updates from this year's E3-all week long, right here on Nerdist.

What music will feature in Final Fantasy VII Remake? All footage from the game, including all gameplay, has been limited to the forward section of Final Fantasy 7 where Cloud and Barrett's Avalanche attack Midgard's Mako Reactor.

Expect more information about Final Fantasy 7 Remake and its multi-part structure tonight during Square Enix's E3 2019 press conference at 6:00 pm PT.
