Did you catch the recent FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE trailer?
It showcases a lot of characters from the upcoming game - a complete reimagining of the classic RPG that debuted on the original PlayStation in 1997.
That game didn’t have any voice acting, so, excitingly, this is the first time that many of these characters have had a voice.

About FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE
You’ll be able to hear them bring the story of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE to life, when it releases April 10, 2020 for PS4.
The game reimagines the iconic RPG for a modern age. It’s set in Midgar - a city that has fallen under the thumb of the Shinra Electric Power Company, which controls the planet's life force as mako energy.
