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:
On September 7, 1997, we released the original FINAL FANTASY VII in North America.
To celebrate the anniversary we've remade one of the most iconic pieces of artwork from the original game, and now there are just under 6 months until the launch of #FinalFantasy VII Remake! #FF7R pic.twitter.com/OLjw4g6kOQ
