We have been waiting for this moment since the technical demo on the PlayStation 3 way back in 2011, but it’s finally here — Final Fantasy VII Remake is almost here. As we announced yesterday, the game is headed to PlayStation 4 on March 3rd, 2020. Now, thanks to the Square Enix presser we get a deluge of new information, screens, and a fresh trailer, as well as an absolutely gorgeous limited edition 1st Class Edition of the game.
SQUARE ENIX also revealed details of special editions including the Deluxe Edition and SQUARE ENIX Store exclusive “1st Class Edition” for the ultimate collector.
The Deluxe Edition, available to pre-order now, contains a hardback art book featuring stunning concept art, a Mini-Soundtrack CD, Summon Materia DLC allowing players to summon Cactuar in game, and a Sephiroth SteelBook® Case. The Digital Deluxe Edition contains a digital art book, a digital Mini-Soundtrack, and Summon Materia DLC allowing players to summon Carbuncle and Cactuar in game.
The “1st Class Edition” includes all Deluxe Edition content, the Carbuncle Summon Materia DLC, as well as a Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife and Hardy Daytona box set (bundled separately), which is available to pre-order in limited quantities from the SQUARE ENIX Store.
Those who pre-order any version of the game from select retailers will also receive the Chocobo™ Chick Summon Materia DLC at launch. Those who pre-order any digital edition from the PlayStation®Store will also receive the Cloud & Sephiroth Dynamic Theme for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.
In addition, we finally have a good rundown of who will be voicing our favorite silent adventurers, as well as one of Final Fantasy’s most sinister villains of all time:
Cloud, voiced by Cody Christian (All American, Teen Wolf)
Barret, voiced by John Eric Bentley (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Independence Day: Resurgence)
Aerith, voiced by Briana White (Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Occupants)
Tifa, voiced by Britt Baron (GLOW)
Jessie, voiced by Erica Lindbeck (Spider-Man, Persona 5, ThunderCats Roar)
Biggs, voiced by Gideon Emery (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Teen Wolf)
Wedge, voiced by Matt Jones (Breaking Bad)
Sephiroth, voiced by Tyler Hoechlin
Square Enix is being very deliberate on the way they’ve announced the game — “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be available first for the PlayStation®4 system from March 3, 2020″ clearly indicates that we can expect this game to come to other platforms eventually. How long is that? That’s the million dollar question. In the mean time, feast on these beautiful screens of the game in motion.
