Sony’s State of Play commenced at midnight and it was much better than the previous one that focused on PSVR titles. This time around, it was focused on PS4 titles including the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake. Announced nearly five years ago, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is looking good.

Last year we learned that the Final Fantasy VII Remake won’t use a turn-based battle system but instead an active battle system, departing from the original. This is a true remake that, when announced, was said to be in an episodic format. There isn’t any new news regarding the episodic format, but developer Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura did clarify on Twitter that most of the plans for the game are already in place in the run up to launch.
Square Enix comments on the PlayStation Blog that:

Finally, the long-awaited moment has come. Sorry to keep you all waiting! We hope you enjoyed the footage shown during the State of Play stream. It was quite short, but hopefully, you enjoyed seeing Cloud and Aerith brought back to life with such realistic graphics. And oh my god! Did you notice he was there too?
We are preparing to release more official information in June, but we wanted to try something new here on the State of Play by showing you this special trailer as a taste of what’s to come.
In the trailer, you can see Cloud, Barrett as well as Aerith. However, Tifa Lockhart is strangely absent. Then, Sephiroth gets a very brief tease, but that was enough to send chills down my spine.
