Well, yesterday I brought you information on Final Fantasy VII the Remake. Well now, thanks to E3 2019 there is even more Final Fantasy VII info, specifically the different editions of the game and the various voice actors, and there will be much, much, more info shared over the next few months, until its release in March 2020.
If there is anyone out there who doesn’t know what I’m talking about, then shame on you, but you know what I’ll let you off, because I’m always happy to talk FFVII. Ultimately, it’s a reimagining of the iconic 7th game in the Final Fantasy series, released on the Playstation console in the mid-late nineties. This time, it has been given a new coat of paint and the turn-based strategy has been replaced with a more action-based gameplay that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat.
Unlike the original, the game will be released in three episodes, with the first game in the project being set in the dynamic city of Midgar, although part of a larger story it’s a great start to the series. If you want to see this in action, watch the trailer from E3 2019 right here:
Final Fantasy VII will be released in several non-standard editions, these are Deluxe Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and 1st Class Edition.
