Final Fantasy VII Remake Latest Updates

Jul 07, 2019


After announcement released in 2014, Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII Remake finally reveals new information and screenshots that highlights the story, characters, event scenes, the battle system, and locations. The details of Final Fantasy VII Remake story is about Mako, the life energy which pumped out from the planet, and Midgar, a Sector 8 city with Mako Reactors in each Sector.

AVALANCHE An organization which has taken control of the world through the monopolization of Mako goes against the mega-conglomerate Shinra in order to protect the planet. Cloud, a former member of Shinra’s military organization soldier, participates in “Mako Reactor No. 1 Destruction Plan” as a mercenary. The destruction of the Mako Reactor leaves a lingering reverberation in Sector 8. In a city surrounded by fire, the phantom of an old enemy that should have died sways.

Guided by the phantom of a past he wants to forget, he meets a girl. The flower girl holds out a yellow flower. In the language of flowers, it means, “Reunion.” At that moment, a black mist surrounds them—the “Watchmen of Fate.” Now hope will travel the planet once more.

Take a look at the details of some of the characters of Final Fantasy VII Remake:
