The Final Fantasy 7 remake was conspicuous by its absence from Square Enix's awful E3 2018 media briefing - so, should we be worried about its development? Is it even in development?
Square Enix has moved development of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake from external developer CyberConnect2 to its in-house team.
A new London concert will celebrate the music of famed Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu.
Every time I hear Square Enix talk about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake - announced to gasps and sweaty excitement during Sony's E3 2015 press conference - the game seems further away.
Finally, it's happened: Final Fantasy 7 Monopoly is real.
Final Fantasy 7's remake will feature full voice-acting, director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed in an interview with Dengeki PlayStation (translated via Gematsu).
UPDATE 11TH DECEMBER: Not everybody welcomed news that the Final Fantasy 7 remake will be episodic. The original game people enjoyed in one chunk - why fragment the experience now?
Square Enix has revealed the first gameplay footage of the PlayStation 4 Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
The game's new trailer was just revealed during the PlayStation Experience 2015 keynote, and mixes cut-scenes with definite gameplay.
Visually, the game looks a lot like Final Fantasy 15 - which is no bad thing.
UPDATE 17/08/2015: A short playable demo of the fan-made Final Fantasy 7 beat 'em up has been released. You can download it from the Final Fantasy 7: Re-imagined website.
Tetsuya Nomura apparently didn't realise he was directing the remake of Final Fantasy 7 until he saw his name appear in the credits.
Final Fantasy 7's remake, announced during Sony's show at this week's E3, captured a fair amount of attention, and a few questions snatched at the end of a roundtable about Kingdom Hearts 3 with its director Tetsuya Nomura revealed a bit more.
Nomura, who was a character designer on the 1997 original, is clearly excited about the prospect. "The talks about making this remake, internally it's been mentioned on and off," he told Eurogamer's Aoife Wilson in the interview. "Sometimes we think we can do it, and then sometimes we think maybe we can't. Considering some of the original staff, like Kitase, he's acting as producer, and [Kazushige] Nojima, he's doing the script - we're all getting older! If we keep going like this, the thought occurred to us that we might have to pass this on to a younger generation, without the original developers taking part. It doesn't seem like such a grand intention, but we wanted to do it with the original members."
So why has it taken 'til now for it to happen - especially as it comes relatively soon after Square Enix disappointed fans by setting up a reveal last December before announcing the PC port of the original was coming to PlayStation 4?
The long called for Final Fantasy 7 Remake is real - and it's coming first to PlayStation 4.
