Final Fantasy VII Remake

Square Enix has released new video message from Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase in celebration of its worldwide launch for PlayStation 4 today.

Here is the message in full:

Hello everyone, I am Yoshinori Kitase from Square Enix.

We just released Final Fantasy VII Remake that many of you have been waiting for. The original Final Fantasy VII was released in 1997, which means that this remake is coming to you after 23 years since its release.

Fans may be thinking, “I wonder what happened to that scene,” or “I wonder what happened to Cloud’s cross-dressing scene,” but we revived the original game using state of the art technology and the best graphics, making it into a game that meets or goes beyond your expectations and is exciting to play.

We have also introduced cutting-edge game systems, making for a speedy and active battle system that meets the expectations of the younger generation of gamers as well.

I hope you enjoy the game.
