It’s finally here, as FFVIIR / Final Fantasy VII Remake officially launches today! It experienced a slight delay, but as we’ve written in our review, it’s well worth the wait. The simple story blurb for the reimagining of this classic title is just given as such:
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.
Physical copies of the game have been experiencing hiccups in getting delivered, but digital players will be able to dive right in. You’ve waited this long to see Cloud and co once again, so hang in there everyone. At the very least, FFVIIR is at last out there, as distributors work to see its launches across the globe.
