Now Playing: Final Fantasy VII Remake - Official Release Date Gameplay Trailer

Update: Square Enix kicked off its E3 2019 press conference with another look at the Final Fantasy VII remake. Following an extended combat and gameplay sequence, the developer shared an extended version of the trailer first shown during the Final Fantasy concert on Sunday night. It also revealed the Final Fantasy VII remake will come on two discs, and there will be an extravagant collector's edition that costs $330 USD. The original story follows.

Square Enix's long-awaited Final Fantasy VII remake has finally gotten a release date. The game is launching exclusively for PS4 on March 3, 2020, Square Enix announced during a Final Fantasy concert ahead of its E3 2019 press conference. Alongside that piece of news, the publisher released a brand-new trailer for the much-anticipated title.

The new trailer provides a fresh look at how the classic RPG has been reimagined for PS4. The video runs for a little over a minute and, like the trailer shared last month during Sony's State of Play presentation, showcases a handful of familiar characters as well as more gameplay footage. Take a look for yourself in the embed above.

The Final Fantasy VII remake has been a long time coming. The game was first announced during Sony's E3 2015 press conference, but since then, we've only gotten trickles of new details about it. Square Enix had previously said the remake would be released in multiple parts, although it made no mention of that when it announced the game's release date.

The release date is already a major piece of news for the Final Fantasy VII remake, but we expect there will be more to see of it at Square Enix's E3 press conference on Monday, June 10. The show begins at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (2 AM BST on June 11); be sure to follow along with GameSpot for the latest.
