There’s a Final Fantasy VII 25th anniversary livestream on June 16th

Will we see Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2?

Final Fantasy VII Remake’s official Twitter account have tweeted to announce a 25th anniversary livestream for Square’s classic JRPG, which they’ve scheduled for June 16th. The stream will last for ten minutes and we’re asked to “Please be excited.” Okay then, I will. But only if it’s not about another Final Fantasy VII spin-off.

Dubbed a “celebration broadcast”, the only other information forthcoming from Square Enix came in the form of a follow-up tweet by Final Fantasy VII Remake’s creative director, Tetsuya Nomura:

Well, I don’t know about you but I’d certainly like to hear more from Square Enix about Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 during those “short and sweet” ten minutes. Although, considering the company’s pivot towards technologies like blockchain and NFTs, maybe it’d be better if we don’t. At least Squenix haven’t sold Final Fantasy off like they did with Tomb Raider and Deus Ex last month.

Nomura already confirmed a month ago that this broadcast would be happening at some point. Even if FFVII Remake Part 2 is shown off though, PC players will likely have to wait for relative yonks to get hold of it. Katharine enjoyed her time with the game and awarded it a Bestest Best, more than a year and a half after it launched on PlayStation.

The Final Fantasy VII 25th anniversary livestream is being broadcast on June 16th/17th at 3pm PST/11pm BST/12am CEST. You’ll be able to watch it on YouTube and at Square Enix’s Twitch channel.
