After years of teasers and gameplay visuals, the Final Fantasy VII remake now has an official release date.

During a special Final Fantasy-themed concert, Square Enix shared a new trailer for the highly-anticipated game along with a worldwide lunch date of March 3, 2020. More specfically, the game’s first part will release on March 3 with more parts to follow. Unfortunately so far it is unclear just how many parts the remake will be divided into.

Square Enix has shared that the game will be “rebuilding and expanding” upon the classic title and that four key members of the original’s production team including its original director, writer, composer and character designer, have returned to oversee work on the update.

According to a report that surfaced last month, a demo of the Final Fantasy VII remake will be made available for PlayStation Plus subscribers during, or right after, E3.

Check out the official synopsis for Final Fantasy VII below:

“In Midgar, a city controlled by the mega-conglomerate Shinra Inc., the No. 1 Mako Reactor has been blown up by a rebel group, Avalanche. Avalanche was secretly formed to wage a rebellion against Shinra Inc., an organisation which is absorbing Mako energy, destroying the natural resources of the planet. Cloud, a former member of Shinra’s elite combat force, SOLDIER, was involved with the bombing of the Mako Reactor. Can Cloud and AVALANCHE protect the planet from the huge, formidable enemy, Shinra Inc.?”

The Final Fantasy VII remake was originally announced five years ago. Check out the new trailer above and keep it locked here for more details surrounding the Sony PlayStation 4 exclusive game.
