A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

We got to see more of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake during a symphonic concert Los Angeles and got a release date: March 3, 2020.

The original Final Fantasy VII came out in 1997 for PlayStation. This remake, which features modern graphics and an action-based combat system, is coming to PlayStation 4.

Square Enix announced the existence of this remake back during Sony’s E3 2015 event. Since then, we haven’t heard much about the project.
