News PS5 Fans Were Hoping for an Update on Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth This Week
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was nowhere to be seen during yesterday's PlayStation Showcase, a conspicuous absence which fans were quick to note.

News Final Fantasy 7 Remake Battle Lead Wants to 'Surpass Final Fantasy 12's Gambit System'
Now we're talking
Final Fantasy VII Remake famously swapped out the original's turn-based combat system for a more modern action-based hybrid (with some characters' combat styles being more difficult to adapt than others).

News Final Fantasy 7 Remake Producer Says Narrative Changes 'Necessary' to Keep Players Interested
Be careful what you wish for
Final Fantasy VII Remake really could have gone either way, looking back.

Watch out for the Zolom

Feature What We Want From Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and How It Needs to Improve on Remake
Don't believe in fate
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has been officially announced, and it's already proving to be a popular talking point — perhaps as you'd expect, given the events of Final Fantasy VII Remake. This is a sequel that seems to be veering wildly from the once promised path, and 'Rebirth' certainly hammers that point home. But what do we...

News Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Is Remake 2, PS5 Exclusive, Out Winter 2023
No longer a remake
The official title for Final Fantasy VII Remake 2 is Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, Square Enix has confirmed.

We imagine that this will be a move that won't go down well with everyone, but we're still...

Pray for Remake 2
Square Enix has just announced that it'll be doing a 25th anniversary broadcast for Final Fantasy VII, which is potentially very exciting news.

News Final Fantasy VII Remake 2 Will Likely Take Gameplay Elements from Yuffie DLC
With DLC and expansions, developers often experiment with new gameplay mechanics, or build upon existing systems.

News Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 Will Have One Director, Rather Than Three
All-in on Naoki Hamaguchi
Final Fantasy VII Remake had three directors: Tetsuya Nomura, Motomu Toriyama, and Naoki Hamaguchi.

News Final Fantasy VII Remake 2 Is Now in Active Development
Until next time
We've known for a long, long time now that the Final Fantasy VII Remake launching March 2020 isn't the entire game -- rather the first third or so taking place in Midgar. It's a hugely expanded version of the city, but we've been wondering when we'll start to hear of what's to come beyond those boundaries. It's probably still going...
