EDIT: IT'S TRUE!! :o
Final Fantasy VII Remake E3 2015 -  PS4

VIDEO: https://youtu.be/Kznek1uNVsg

Old leak info below prior to the reveal:

Siliconera has learnt that Square Enix are developing a Final Fantasy VII remake for PlayStation 4.
The Final Fantasy VII remake will use a more modern art style for Cloud, similar to his appearance in Dissidia Final Fantasy or Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It is being created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII.
(And no, this isn’t the Final Fantasy VII port for PlayStation 4 that was previously announced by Square.)
Verified Insider at Neogaf also confirmed this:

I very much doubt it. And even if they do "remake" it, they will only screw it up.  Assuming they have the source code (which is doubtful), the most people can expect is a few updates.  I'd be very surprised if they had put in the resources needed to remake it.  The writers have continually stated that it would take at least 4 years because of their insane pandering to Full 3D HD environments.

The only thing I'm predicting from Square Enix at E3 this year is a PC version of Chrono Trigger, ported from Android, for 20 or 30 bucks. That's about all the confidence I have in them right now.

An FF7 remake is like finding aliens. No one wants them to exist more than me, but after so many years of bad information, I trust nothing.

It would require a complete rewrite. It couldn't be converted. Then, it wouldn't really stand up to the length of other titles.

They don't say anything that's actually happening, but the music in the video is Frog's theme from Chrono Trigger, and I don't really think they're gonna make a new Chrono game, so a port of Chrono Trigger to PC seems most likely.

I share dlpbs sentiments. Square,s definition of "remake" is laughable at best. Plus, the information is from a site ive never heard of, so im not taking it seriously to begin with.

It's legit, they just announced it. And it looks all Advent Children'd up, both in visuals and story. Dammit.

It's happening, huh? Not sure how to feel about it myself. My SE confidence isn't that high. But I'm trying to be hopeful that it'll hold up.

Bloody hell. I don't know what to think. I never got this far in the thought process before- it always stopped at "Not gonna happen".
I hope it's good. I won't mind if it's not, I think.

To be honest, I am not even hyped or excited for it anymore. I spent years wanting it. Now, it is just sort of 'meh' from me.

Someone pointed out to me that the trailer's narration is not in-universe. It's about a fan reunion, about how the studio went quiet after the PS3 tech demo. From that perspective, it's actually kinda clever.

Just keep Angeal and Edge and all that out of the game and maintain the turn-based combat and I'll be happy.

I'll believe it after I sleep and recheck tomorrow, to make sure i'm not in some kind of inception. Holy crap, I totally did not see that coming.

^ Overreacting on the hate aren't you?
Without even seeing a glimpse of Gameplay yet you show so much hatred and act like you desperately want this game to be bad lol ;D

This is very surreal. After all the false hope and cashing in on the ff7 name with spin offs it's strange to see it actually happening. Can't wait to see some in game footage

I hope they dont mess this up. Sometimes its better to not remake a game.

SQUARE ENIX BROKE THE INTERNET. This is like the most awaited remake in the world (Even though I am the VIII guy I'd definitely buy a PS4 and this would be my first game).

I know it's only a video, but Midgar looks amazing. Seeing as Nomura has creative control though I guess we'll be treated to more of host club Cloud and hip hop Barret.

All I can say is I hope it is good, I was reading that it says "Play it first on PS4". Perhaps it will come to PC, and then it can be modded.

Still, I still have a non-reaction. xD. I guess it is just sinking in.
