A lot can happen in 10 minutes
June isn’t done yet, and this afternoon, we’ve got another gaming showcase to watch. It’s about time to check out the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary Celebration, which will be streaming live at 3:00 p.m. Pacific today. What’s on the docket? Officially, Square Enix has promised “all the latest information relating to the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII.”
Depending on who you ask (and which leaks you believe), this stream could touch on many different things — a Steam release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, a coveted glimpse of FFVII Remake Part 2, and potentially even some FFVII “expanded universe” news.
While the FFVII 25th Anniversary Celebration stream is supposed to be on the shorter side, the hype for this event has really snowballed in the past 24 hours, as is the way.
Admittedly, I’m less interested in hearing about stuff like The First Soldier and Ever Crisis, and with Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 such an unknown quantity at this point, I’m sure many of you feel the same way. If we get anything concrete on the Naoki Hamaguchi-directed game, and maybe a fun wild-card announcement, I’ll be happy. A few details — heck, even a bit of familiar imagery to latch onto — can go a long way while we wait.
(Worth reminding: if Dragon’s Dogma is more your speed, Capcom is also hosting a 10th anniversary stream at the exact same time. I’m feeling reserved yet hopeful.)
Y’all ready for this?
Recap — that was a great showing!
- Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is available on Steam tomorrow
- Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the next of the remakes, coming next winter
- Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is getting a closed beta sometime this year
- Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion arrives this winter for PC, consoles
It’s nice to still feel a bit of that “E3” spark.
