Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children is set to receive a 4K UHD Blu-Ray release.

The upcoming remaster will use the 2009 director’s cut with about 26 additional minutes and will debut in an upgraded HDR10 resolution, Dolby panoramic sound and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. A spinoff of Final Fantasy VII, Advent Children takes place two years after the events of the game and is set in the new city of Edge — founded by the survivors of Midgar after Meteor destroys it. Cloud isolates himself due to the guilt he feels from being unable to save Aerith, while many citizens (including Cloud and Denzel, the orphan he and Tifa take care of) find out that they are suffering from an unknown disease called Geostigma that has no cure. Cloud and Tifa must also defeat Kadaj, Loz and Yazoo, the physical manifestations of Sephiroth’s surviving spirit who are trying to recruit kids with Geostigma and revive Sephiroth.

The 2005 CG film is directed by directed by Tetsuya Nomura, written by Kazushige Nojima and produced by Yoshinori Kitase and Shinji Hashimoto. Although the movie’s plot was criticized because it was too difficult to understand for viewers who didn’t play Final Fantasy VII, it was lauded for its animation and CGI and went on to win the Maria Award at the 2005 Sitges Film Festival and Best Anime Feature at the 2007 American Anime Awards.

Watch the first 10 minutes of Advent Children above and get a Blu-ray copy on June 8.
