Having previous stage experience, Co-Director Naoki Hamaguchi could announce the game at Electronic Entertainment Expo(E3 2019) in June.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake follows the original game script along with some new storylines. Cloud Strife is the main character, a previous Shinra Soldier who joins the AVALANCHE Eco-terrorist group. He is hell-bent on revenge and fights against the evil Shinra Corporation.
The game will be a totally up from ground remake, which will feature advanced graphical renders. It will have a more in-depth visual and real life like characters. There would also be strategic elements like selecting weapons and magic for each playable character.
