PC Port is Here!

Cloud on PC Port to PS4

After debuting footage of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura announced that the port is now available on Playstation Network. Until December 12, the price of the game will be $10.87, which is 32 percent off the price tag of $15.99. The same features from Steam’s version released in 2013 including character booster, increased audio and visual quality, and achievements. The PS4 port includes a new dashboard theme with sound effects of the original menu options from the classic game, as well as the “Special Movie,” which is the E3 Trailer.

Some, but not all, of the achievements can also be found in the Steam version of Final Fantasy VII. However, there are more than a few new ones that players will be unlocking for the first time once the game finally arrives, including trophies like “Failure IS an Option”, which requires for your whole party to fall in battle. There is also the “Best Bromance” achievement, which has players going on a date with Barret to the Gold Saucer.

Avalanche is Officially Back! Gameplay and English Voiceovers

The newest Final Fantasy VII trailer was unveiled at the 2015 PlayStation Experience today. This trailer was designed to show off Cloud Strife and reintroduce him to audiences, but it did more than that. It showed some more dynamic environments he’ll have to run through. He has to crawl through small spaces in the demo and duck his way through crumbling areas.

 

The Final Fantasy VII trailer also highlighted some of the new English voice acting and a brief look at the battle system. Square Enix hinted at “dramatic changes” to the battle system earlier this year, and from speculation it is quite possible it is still a turn based system with a menu bar on the lower left screen. The basic options of ‘Attack’, ‘Magic’, ‘Summon’, and ‘Items’ are familiar with a new selection for ‘Defend.’ As you can see Cloud dashes to his targets on the screen, along with Barret freely walking around while shooting his opponents. Both Cloud and Barrett speak for the first time in the video, as well as Biggs, Jessie and Wedge. The original script seems to be intact. So far fans are very pleased with the newest trailer for the remake.

Details! We Need Details Square Enix!

The Final Fantasy VII Remake project was in development for PlayStation 4 before the port of the original Final Fantasy VII was announced, Square Enix claim in an interview with Eurogamer.

“When we announced the HD port, the PC port on the PS4, we weren’t sure when we wanted to announce the remake,” Final Fantasy VII Remake director Tetsuya Nomura said to the site. “The production was underway then, so there’s no real connection between the timing of the two FF7s coming to PS4. We’ve announced several different titles coming to the PlayStation 4 like World of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts 3.”

According to Nomura, the announcement was made in part as part of an effort to help boost sales of the PlayStation 4 in Japan, where the console market has shrunk considerably, and home console sales are at an all-time low.

“There’s more and more titles being introduced for the platform, and we’re hoping that announcing the remake of Final Fantasy VII, it’ll give a boost to people wanting to buy this current generation of console,” Nomura said.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Coming To PlayStation 4

The Final Fantasy VII remake will use a more modern art style for Cloud, similar to his appearance in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It is being created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII.

Sony announced the game at their E3 press conference, specifying that the Final Fantasy VII remake is coming “first” to PlayStation 4.

The game will be directed by Tetsuya Nomura, with a scenario written by Kazushige Nojima. Yoshinori Kitase returns as Producer for the remake.

(And no, this isn’t the Final Fantasy VII port for PlayStation 4 that was previously announced by Square.)

Final Fantasy VII Is Coming To PlayStation 4, But This Is Not A Remake

Final Fantasy VII Port on PS4

Shinji Hashimoto stepped up to the stage at the PlayStation Experience keynote to announce that Final Fantasy VII will be re-released for PlayStation 4. Before you get too excited, it’s the PC version of Final Fantasy VII with upscaled graphics. This is *not* a remake though.

Final Fantasy VII for PlayStation 4 is scheduled for spring 2015.
