For the Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix has released a new trailer for the remake of Final Fantasy VII, which shows scenes from the slums of Midgard, but also characters, Shinra agents, mini-games and incantations. Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released on March 3, 2020 on Playstation 4.

Hardly any remake is as much expected by fans as that of Final Fantasy VII. Not surprisingly, after all, the series part is considered one of the best role-playing games ever. As part of the Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix has now shown a new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake, fueling fans' longing for the release.

Final Fantasy VII Remake brings a new combat system

The comparatively long trailer shows gameplay for Final Fantasy VII Remake, which takes place in the slums of Midgard. It is there that the powerful Shinra corporation is fighting against resistance troops from the “Avalanche” group, whose goal is to save the planet.

Not only excerpts from cutscenes are shown, but also opposing agents and mini-games in which Cloud Strife and his friends have to prove themselves through well-timed button pressing. The highlights of the trailer certainly include the incantations of Shiva and Ifrit. The action-packed trailer specially created for the Tokyo Game Show gives a first impression of the visual quality of the remake.

In any case, the revision of Final Fantasy VII is intended to be more than a mere graphical upgrade. A new combat system is also part of the project, which will be divided into several games.
According to Square Enix, the remake is not only intended to appeal to die-hard fans and connoisseurs of the role-playing game series, but also to newcomers for whom Final Fantasy has only been part of video game history. Previous knowledge should not be required.
