Final Fantasy 7 Remake PS4 - Tifa, Gameplay Trailer, Pre-Order, Collector's Edition - Everything We Know

Here's our guide to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PS4, including the release date, the new redesigned Tifa, pre-order bonuses, and more.

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is looking more impressive than ever in new screenshots from Square Enix, and the group of Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, and Aerith are back in action. In this complete guide on the remake, we'll be going over details like the new Final Fantasy 7 Remake Tifa trailer, all the various Final Fantasy 7 Remake special editions, and much more.

We now know that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake release date is March 3, 2020. You can see the extended trailer which announced the release date just below, which debuted at a Final Fantasy 7-themed concert in LA, just before E3 2019.

But later on in June, Square Enix revealed that this was the release date for just part one of the remake. Additionally, we now know that episode one of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will take place exclusively in Midgar, which Square has said they're fleshing out into the size of a full Final Fantasy game, with side stories and missions that detail the inhabitants of the city.

For those that are purchasing the physical edition of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, the game will be split up into two discs. Yeah, that's how big the game supposedly is. Speaking to Famitsu recently (translated by Gematsu), director Nomura confirmed some additional details. The cross-dressing scene with Cloud is staying, albeit it in a modified way, and there's going to be plenty more dialogue than there was in the original release.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Tifa

We now have an official unveiling for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Tifa redesign. You can see the reveal of Tifa in the trailer below, in which our heroine goes to battle with some Shinra forces.

In the same interview with Famitsu that we mentioned in the previous section, director Nomura spoke about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Tifa redesign. "We wanted Tifa to have abs, so she has an athletic body type. The ethics department at Square Enix also told us that we had to tighten her chest as not to get unnatural during all the intense action. From there we got the black underwear and fitted tank top," Nomura said.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Screenshots

How about some new Final Fantasy 7 Remake screenshots? Take a look at the tweets from the official Twitter account of the game, to see Cloud, Aerith, and Barrett in action. If you're after a new PC background, then look no further.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Special Editions

Along with the announcement of a release date, Square Enix unveiled two special editions of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. You can see the deluxe edition of the game just below, which will retail for $80, containing a steelbook, soundtrack, and the game.

But if you're after the really pricey edition, then look no further than the 1st Class Edition of Final Fantasy 7, below. This includes a Play Arts Kai figure of Cloud on his motorbike, as well as the steelbook, soundtrack, game, and other items. This special edition of the game costs a staggering $330.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Price

As we mentioned above, the price of Final Fantasy 7 is $60. We can pretty safely assume that Square Enix will keep this pricing model across however many releases it takes to complete the game in full.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake PS4, Platforms

At the current time, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is for the PS4 only. There currently aren't any plans to bring the remake games to either the Xbox One or the Nintendo Switch. The remake was first revealed almost four years ago as a PS4 exclusive game, and it's stayed this way even after resurfacing.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Gameplay

Cloud's back, baby! And he never looked so good. On May 9, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake resurfaced for the first time in over three years, with the trailer below. Cloud and co. are back in style, looking better than ever.

The new Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailer shows off proper gameplay for the first time. We can see that the remake is switching to a more action-orientated gameplay, more akin to Final Fantasy 15 than any of the past games. We can see characters like Cloud, Aerith, Scarlet, Junon, and more in action, with new and redesigned character models.

Later on June 10, we got more Final Fantasy 7 Remake gameplay. A standard attack builds up ATB charges for Cloud, Barret, and co. You can use ATB charges to pause time, use items, switching between characters, and pulling off special attacks.

Finally, Square showed off the boss battle from the Scorpion Sentinel at the end of the bombing mission. We can see Cloud and Barret laying into the boss with multiple stages, including weaknesses, stun phase, special attacks, and more.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Trailer

The first teaser announcement for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake came four years ago, with Square Enix releasing the trailer below at E3 2015. The small trailer briefly showed the city of Midgar, before showing a quick shot of protagonist Cloud with his hefty sword.

The second teaser trailer, which arrived later that same year at PSX 2015, was the last time we saw any footage of the Final Fantasy VII Remake. This trailer showed off the battle system, which looks a lot more like the real-time system in Final Fantasy 15, instead of the turn-based system that was in the original game back in 1997. Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be using single character models throughout the entire game, instead of switching to different character models between combat and exploration.

We also saw brief glimpses of other characters besides Cloud for the first time, such as Aerith, Tifa, Scarlet, and Junon. These are just a few of the characters that will be accompanying Cloud in his quest to take down the evil corporation Shinra, and all of these will be brought to life by the Unreal Engine, instead of the Luminous Engine that Final Fantasy 15 used.

As of right now, this is all the information you need to know about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. As soon as as any new information is released about the remake, we'll update this page straight away.
