Square Enix Ltd., brought Final Fantasy VII (FFVII) Remake to the forefront of the company’s E3 2019 Live Event, showcasing in-depth gameplay and a line-up of special editions ahead of the title’s hands-on debut for consumers at E3 this week.
FFVII Remake is a reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre, diving deeper into the world and its characters than ever before. The first game in this project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that provides a great starting point to the series.
Along with unforgettable characters and a powerful story, FFVII Remake features a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat.
