Square Enix is hosting a “short and sweet” Final Fantasy VII stream soon

Final Fantasy VII stream

June 16 at 6PM ET

So remember when Geoff Keighly said that he thinks publishers have learned that they should probably have “30 minutes plus” conferences, or less micro-conferences in general? Well Square Enix has a 10 minute Final Fantasy VII stream planned for June 16 at 6PM ET.

For reference, here’s the quote:

“There were a lot of shows last year where everyone was disappointed when they weren’t really press conferences, right? Like Take-Two, Capcom, Square Enix and things like that…I think [they] have learned that if you’re going to do a press conference, you kind of need to have 30 minutes-plus of stuff, and sometimes they only have one or two great games to show, which may not be enough to do a full event around. So I think that’s going to be a bit of a shift. I have a pretty good sense of what’s coming in the next month, and I think people will be hyped about games in general.”

Welp!

The stream kicks off below at 6PM ET on June 16, with the following caveat from Tetsuya Nomura: “At only around 10 minutes long, it will be short and sweet, but we have packed in lots of information, so I hope everyone can look forward to the unveiling.” Add it to the pile! Less obvious candidates include a tease for Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 or some new media project; more obvious candidates are mobile developments for VII-related projects.

If Square Enix doesn’t show anything related to Part 2  in this Final Fantasy VII stream, they’re just setting themselves up for disappointment. Can you imagine the reaction if it was just a stream for First Soldier and Ever Crisis?
