Final Fantasy VII Remake has only been announced for the PlayStation 4 and has no set release date.

After a lengthy disappearance from the public eye, Square Enix showed off a brand-new trailer for the Final Fantasy VII remake during PlayStation's State of Play stream this afternoon.

Fans who remember the original release will certainly feel the familiar pang of nostalgia as Cloud first meets Aeris, but those mushy emotions are soon replaced by more footage of the game's updated battle system.

The trailer also suggests there might be at least one big departure from the original game's story structure, because in the aftermath of what seems to be the Midgar Mako reactor explosion... Until then you can pre-order Final Fantasy 7 and stare at your receipt. We get to see some combat as well as some cutscene clips.

Warriors take series lead, Bucks eliminate Celtics
Antetokounmpo picked up his third foul when Jaylen Brown drove to the hoop early in the second half, but he stayed in the game. The top-seeded Bucks placed seven players in double figures in their fourth straight win after dropping the series opener.

Final Fantasy VII was first released in 1997 and at the time of its debut became an instant fan-favorite with over a million copies sold in North America.

Given the four-year silence in Final Fantasy 7 Remake's development, players are now wondering whether the details previously revealed during the announcement back in 2015 still holds to this day. In a press release via Square Enix's Japanese website, the publisher confirmed that the game will be a multi-part series, releasing in episodes similar to titles such as those from the now-defunct Telltale Games.

The short but sweet trailer was just a tease for more to come as the end slide promised more information in June.
