Square Enix Introduces New Players to FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE in Behind-The-Scenes Video

It may be hard to believe, but Square Enix's long-delayed remake of 1997's Final Fantasy VII — which was officially announced during Sony's huge press conference at E3 2015 — is finally coming to PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.

Although the upcoming project takes place only in Midgar, Square Enix is adding tons of brand-new content into the sprawling city to somehow compensate for the fact that the remake will basically end where the cult-classic game's second act began. Yes, Final Fantasy VII Remake is not really the full, stand-alone game.

According to the publisher, the title is only the first entry in the so-called Final Fantasy VII Remake project, with Cloud Strife's story being continued in the original instalment's sequels. It's all complicated, and what's even funnier, Square doesn't seem to know how many parts the complete version of the remake will span.

If you would like to learn more about the never-before-seen content that will debut in the remake, Square has released a special behind-the-scenes video, showcasing some of those new characters and locations.

Featuring interviews with renowned developers including Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Director Tetsuya Nomura, take a closer look at the "introduction" video for Final Fantasy VII Remake (Part 1?) down below:

The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him. The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.

Final Fantasy VII: Remake is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.
