The folks at Square Enix has just showcased a first look at the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake at the PlayStation Experience (PSX 2015)  in San Francisco! I’m pretty sure a good handful of geeks today have fond memories of the original cult classic.

The first thing noticeable in the trailer is… could the combat be switched to real-time over the original turn based approach? And the biggest question now is, when will it be released?? I’m predicting 2018 at the earliest… That’s going to be a long wait. But then again, its probably going to be a PS5 launch title.

Here’s the official description for the video:

They are coming back to Midgar…

Mako Reactors are draining the life energy of the planet. The Shinra Corporation rules over a corrupt surveillance state. A few prosper, the rest are left to rot in the city slums of Midgar. That changes tonight.

The elite mercenary and ex-SOLDIER Cloud Strife has been hired by the resistance movement AVALANCHE to fight back. Their mission will change the world forever.
