What to expect at the Final Fantasy 7 Anniversary Broadcast
With a runtime of 10 minutes, whatever information on new games Square Enix provides will likely be limited. However, there are a few titles that will likely be mentioned, including mobile battle royale Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier and the upcoming episodic title Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis.
The highest-profile game, however, is Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, which has not seen an update since it was teased at the end of June 2021’s Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. If Square Enix was going to provide an update on Part 2 this summer, a presentation like this would be the time to do so.
However, it’s also possible that this is simply a celebration of Final Fantasy VII’s 25th anniversary and no news will be shared at all–despite what the social media posts say–so keep expectations in check.
