Final Fantasy VII was undeniably the top headliner at E3 2015. Why would Square Enix miss their chance to show off their might for their 30th anniversary of all years?
For the next E3, I thought we’d get an official date for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. But I also thought we’d get a surprise:
THE REMAKE WILL FEATURE THE ENTIRE COMPLETE ORIGINAL GAME!!! they might miss out on the 20th-anniversary opportunity and release it next year. We’ll see…
We already saw Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s release date which took us totally by surprise (to us). They could very well do it with Final Fantasy VII’s Remake near the end of E3. Surprises happen.
I thought we’d get an entire Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy on one PS4 disc. We could’ve see a Final Fantasy XIII Remaster in HD. The game looks great as it is, so maybe we’ll see a port? Maybe we’ll see the PC port of Final Fantasy XIII? Maybe we’ll see an October release date for a PS4 Final Fantasy XIII…
…well, I would like that at least. But it seems Square Enix might want to wait until 2019 for its 10th anniversary.
We could’ve seen a 30th-anniversary limited edition box collection, with Final Fantasy I through IX on one disc. But I don’t think it’s likely. If anything, they’ll release all of the Final Fantasy games on PSN for the PS4. But people (including me) love physical copies. It psychologically makes the collection look complete. Then again, maybe Square Enix is trying to pace themselves. Maybe Square Enix doesn’t know their limits.
Or maybe Square Enix doesn’t care.
One of these days, we’ll see a trailer for Final Fantasy XVI based off of Agni’s Philosophy. Since it’s the second highest video on Square Enix’s official YouTube channel. I don’t think they’d want to pass up on this asset. This year at E3? Probably not, but if so, maybe a snippet. Within the next two years of E3? Count on it.
