Final Fantasy VII Remake Box Art Hearkens Back to the Original

Square Enix has revealed the official box art for the Final Fantasy VII Remake, which calls back to its iconic past. 

After years of hoping/waiting, the reality of the Final Fantasy VII Remake is starting to sink in. Beyond all the trailers we’ve seen, getting a look at the official box art sure hammers home that fact that it’s finally happening:

Fans of the franchise will instantly recognize the design, which calls back to the original game’s box art. If that wasn’t enough for you, there’s a new gameplay video that has officially made it’s way online for you to enjoy:

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE is a reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre, diving deeper into the world and its characters than ever before. The first game in the project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that provides a great starting point to the series.

Along with unforgettable characters and a powerful story, FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE features a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat. For players who wish to focus purely on battle strategy, a menu-focused ‘Classic Mode’ provides a gameplay style more similar to the original game.

Final Fantasy VII Remake hits PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
