During Tokyo Game Show 2019, Square Enix released a brand-new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake that shows off Reno and Rude, Shiva and Ifrit, alongside a return to Don Corneo’s mansion.
Update 9/13/2019: We’ve been informed by the voice actor Crispin Freeman he will not be returning as Rude in the upcoming remake and have since removed any mentioning of him from this article.
While March 3rd, 2019, is still a way out, we can’t help but still feel a bit anxious about the upcoming remake of the PlayStation classic. To help build up our anticipation for the upcoming title, Square has also confirmed that they are currently recreating the iconic piece of cover art for the original title, which will see Cloud Strife with his back to the player while facing the infamous Shinra Electric Power Company headquarters.
In the trailer, we get a minor hint at Reno and Rude’s voice actors, whose likenesses for their Final Fantasy VII Remake are unparalleled to that of Reno and Rude in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
Alongside the brand-new trailer, Square Enix also revealed a Deluxe Edition of the game that will feature a hardback art book filled with concept art from the game, as well a summon materia DLC with a Cactuar summoning, and a Sephiroth SteelBook Case for collectors to enjoy. Digital Deluxe Editions will feature digital versions of the aforementioned content and the ability to summon Carbuncle as a summoning.
Those who pre-order will receive a Chocobo Chick Summon Materia DLC at the launch of the game. Final Fantasy VII Remake is set to launch on March 3rd, 2019, for PlayStation 4, alongside voice-overs in English, Japanese, French, and German alongside subtitles in the aforementioned languages as well as Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
You can pre-order Final Fantasy VII: Remake today via the Square Enix Store today.
