We will continue to implement updates to in-game events, including the conclusion of the Warrior of Despair story, until the end of service, so it is our fondest hope that you will see our adventurers' fates out to the very last.

Thank you for fighting alongside the Warriors of Light and for being a part of the world of Mobius Final Fantasy. May you continue to bring the light of hope to those around you.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake will not be released worldwide on 3 March 2020, but has been delayed to 10 April 2020.

Below is a message from the development team:

We know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on. In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date to April 10, 2020.

We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience. I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer.

Thank you for your patience and continued support”

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Last week the listing of the Final Fantasy VII Remake demo in the PlayStation Store was leaked. However it seems that now the full demo has been leaked. It is listed on an open file server along with the full game (which has been removed now).

Footage has been uploaded on YouTube from the demo. YouTube user Lystrasza has successfully got the demo working, most likely on a modded or jailbraiked PlayStation 4, and has uploaded the opening cutscene of the game.

More footage has appeared on YouTube so it seems other users also got the demo working. Here's a video of the full demo. Better watch it now, before it will be removed.

-- video has been removed from YouTube ---

The demo starts at the beginning of Final Fantasy VII (Remake), the bombing of the Mako Reactor 1 and ends after it's destruction. Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released on 3 March 2020.

Update: It seems more than only the demo has been leaked. After people have data-mined the package, which is 10GB, additional content has been found that is otherwise impossible to find in the course of the demo. We will not post these things, but you've been warned!

Happy Holidays!I want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020!

This year, 2019, started with the release of the long awaited Kingdom Hearts III. The game received positive reviews, however some fans were dissapointed that no Final Fantasy characters are in the game. Next month Re:Mind, the DLC episode, will be released, that will include Final Fantasy characters.

In March Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn, the last DLC for Final Fantasy XV was released 2 years after the release of the game. Square Enix also released Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy!, the remastered version of Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon. In July Dragon Quest Builders 2 was released.

There was also some development with the Mana series. Square Enix released Collection of Mana which contains Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana and for the first-time available in the West Trials of Mana (formely known as Seiken Densetsu 3).

2019 was also the year that a lot of Final Fantasy games have been released on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X / Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy XII. One Final Fantasy was still missing, but in September the remastered version of Final Fantasy VIII was released.

There are several Square Enix games planned for released in 2020. Final Fantasy VII Remake being the game most looking forward to. Also a remake of Trails of Mana will be released in April and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition this Summer.

This year I didn't had enough time to update the website content and revive the community forums. In 2020 I don't see a lot of change in this I'm afraid.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

The games tracker on Gamstat, a page that lists every new addition to the PlayStation Store, has listed the demo of Final Fantasy VII Remake with the cover. The cover was later removed from playstation.net, but has been saved.

The demo has not been confirmed by Square Enix, but it seems to be coming. Will this be the same demo that was playable at multiple conferences (like E3 and gamescom)? Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released on PlayStation 4 on 3 March 2020.
