If you've been yearning after the Final Fantasy 7 remake, you're not the only one. First announced back at E3 2015, this recreation of one of Enix's most beloved titles has been at the forefront of many gamers' minds for years to come.

The news will likely be compelling to many, given the slow development behind the game: despite gameplay footage that was shown in 2015, there were years of relative silence between this and a later flurry of announcements in 2019.
