E3 2019: Square Enix Announces Final Fantasy 7 Remake's Release Date, Set For 2020
Return to Midgar next year.
Update: We got a much closer look at the Final Fantasy VII remake during Square Enix's E3 2019 press conference. We saw an extended version of the trailer shown on Sunday night, as well as an extended gameplay and combat demonstration. Square Enix also revealed the game will span two Blu-ray discs when it launches on PS4, and the publisher will offer an extravagant $330 collector's edition through its online store. The original story follows.
Square Enix has officially confirmed the release date for PS4's Final Fantasy VII Remake. The highly anticipated game will finally launch worldwide on March 3, 2020. The announcement was made during a Final Fantasy concert held prior to the official opening of E3 2019. Square Enix will also have a press conference ahead of the E3, but the company has chosen to give the much-anticipated remake its own time in the limelight.

The release date was preceded by a new trailer, which you can see above. It features Cloud, Barret, and a few other familiar faces taking on the Bombing Mission from the opening of the original Final Fantasy VII. We also get to see the new-look Omnislash, which looks as cool as we remember it being way back in 1997. The major difference from the original that is shown in the trailer is towards the end, where Aerith grabs hold of Clouds hand as a strange black entity envelops them.
The Final Fantasy VII remake has had a lengthy development journey and, over the years, fans have been kept mostly in the dark. This has changed recently, as Square Enix has been delivering more information and even providing glimpses at how the game looks and plays. Most recently, Final Fantasy VII Remake was featured in a PlayStation State of Play livestream held in May.
