New trailer, theme song by Uematsu and Orchestra World Tour

A new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake has been released on the 23rd anniversary of the original game. The trailer features a whole host of characters and locations we've not seen before, including Palmer, Scarlet, Hojo, Red XIII, Cloud and Tifa as kids and the infamous cross-dressing scene, which has been greatly modernised over how it appeared in the original.

The trailer also features the new theme song, "Hollow", composed by Nobuo Uematsu with vocals from Yosh (from Japanese Rock band, Survive Said The Prophet). Nobuo's involvement will excite fans who feared he may not work on the Remake project due to recent illness. It was also revealed that Masashi Hamauzu (One-Winged Angel chorus, Final Fantasy X and XIII trilogy) and Mitsuto Suzuki (Final Fantasy XIII trilogy) would be working on the game's soundtrack.

Finally, Square Enix announced dates for an Orchestra World Tour for Final Fantasy VII Remake, that will be conducted by Arnie Roth, known for his work on Distant Worlds.

Final Fantasy VII Remake delayed until April 10th

Today Square Enix announced that the global release of Final Fantasy VII Remake would be delayed until April 10th, a month after its original release date of March 3rd.

We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience. Producer Yoshinori Kitase said in a message to fans. I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer.

Remake demo coming soon?

It looks like we could have a playable demo of Final Fantasy VII Remake very soon!

Gamstat, a website that tracks the PlayStation Store, caught a glimpse of the demos listing on Christmas Day. This was followed a few days later by leaked videos showing both the opening cinematic and a full play through of the demo.

Since then data miners have started digging through the demos files and have released images of characters and locations that have yet to be revealed. Please be warned that this post also contains massive spoilers for how Remake differs from the original game.

We still dont know when the demo will be officially released.

News roundup and site update

Apologies for the radio silence on the site over the last couple months. Life can sometimes happen at the most inconvenient of times.

To recap some of the news weve missed, a new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake premiered at The Game Awards and a bunch of new screenshots have been released, giving us some clues into how the weapon and materia system will work. The screenshots also show some memorable locations and the Choco/Mog summon.

Updated box art has also confirmed the game is a PlayStation exclusive until 3rd March 2021.

Finally in their latest Letter from the Producer LIVE, the developers of Final Fantasy XIV announced that Ruby Weapon will be added to the game in mid-February as part of The Sorrow of Werlyt side quest. Based on previous patch cycles for XIV, we can probably expect two other Weapon fights to be added in the next year. Fingers crossed we also get some VII music similar to the remix of Force Your Way that was added with the Eden raid series.

On a brief site update, Im aware that the forums are currently broken, as well as the fan fiction and article archive sections. This is the result of a forced PHP upgrade by our hosting provider and I will have an update on the problem very soon.

TGS demo video, Summons, Classic Mode and more

Final Fantasy VII Remake has been at the Tokyo Game Show this week with a playable demo of the game's intro sequence. Full playthroughs of this demo have been released, such as this one from PlayStation Access.

During a TGS stage show it was revealed the game would have a "Classic Mode". Normally the ATB gauge will fill while the player is repeatedly attacking enemies. Once filled you can pause the fight to make tactical decisions using the command menu, such as using magic, abilities and items. According to the official Twitter account in Classic Mode the action combat happens automatically, allowing the player to focus on selecting commands when the ATB gauge is filled.

In another part of the demo summoning Ifrit was shown. Summons enter the battle and are controlled by AI, but the player can spend the ATB gauge to use powerful attacks such as Flare Burst and Crimson Dive.

A collection of new images and pictures from TGS can be viewed over here, including our first sighting of the main menu, which looks very similar to Final Fantasy XV. To celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the release of Final Fantasy VII in North America this month, Square have also remade one of the games most iconic pieces of artwork.

UPDATE: Heres the boss fight with Aps, featuring Cloud, Tifa, Aerith and Ifrit shown at TGS.
