At E3, the PC-to-PS4 port of Square Enix's beloved role-playing game had its release date delayed until winter this year. In addition, the company confirmed that the game would be coming to iOS.

This port is completely separate from the the Final Fantasy 7 remake that was announced at E3 2015.

The Final Fantasy VII remake me be more of a reimagining, if comments from Nomura suggesting it could deviate from its source material are any indication. Speaking to GameSpot, Nomura suggested he didn't see a reason to release the exact same game again.

“We’ve announced an HD port version on the PlayStation 4, and then we have the remake coming to PS4,” he said. “You’ll have this extremely, very, very pretty FFVII existing on the same plane. We feel that if that happens, it’s like, why have the same exact game?

During Square Enix's E3 press conference the company also showed off Kingdom Hearts 3 and Hitman. If you missed it, you can watch it in its entirety right here.
