Square Enix Celebrates 22 Years Of Final Fantasy VII By Remaking An Iconic Image

It’s a great time to be a classical Final Fantasy fan, with the HD remaster of Final Fantasy VIII out this week and the full-blown remake of Final Fantasy VII kicking off early next year. It’s the latter that we’re celebrating today, being exactly 22 years since the original FFVII’s North American launch.

Square Enix haven’t forgotten either, taking to Twitter to post a Remake-styled homepage to the original game’s most recognisable key art. Check it out:

Here’s the original for context:

Final Fantasy VII Remake launches March 3rd, 2020 for PlayStation 4.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
