Final Fantasy 7 Remake Teases New Game Awards Trailer
The Game Awards have Cloud on the mind.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is due out next spring, and Square Enix will show off another fresh look at tonight's Game Awards. In a tease issued on Twitter, the official account promised a new trailer that will focus on the main story character, Cloud Strife. [Update: Final Fantasy VII Remake has been delayed.]
As the tweet acknowledges, Cloud is well-known among fans of the classic RPG, since he's the character that most of the story revolves around. But it's been more than 20 years since the original release of FF7 on the very first PlayStation, so Square Enix appears to be looking to capture a new generation with this remake as well.
Who is Cloud Strife? Longtime fans know him well, and we’re excited to introduce his story to everyone watching #TheGameAwards. Tune in tonight at 5:30PM PT for a new trailer that focuses on everyone’s favorite ex-SOLDIER! https://t.co/b7fYAQyFSx #FF7R— FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE (@finalfantasyvii) December 12, 2019
We recently learned that the FF7 remake is a timed exclusive on PS4, though other platforms haven't been officially announced. It will pay homage to the classic with an option that makes it more closely resemble the turn-based original, though the active combat that we've seen in previous trailers has its own ways of adapting those mechanics for modern times.
