'Final Fantasy 7 Remake' Release Date Announcement Unlikely At Tokyo Game Show 2016 [RUMORS]; When Is The Remake Coming?
Looks like a bad news for the huge "Final Fantasy" fanbase as Square Enix's upcoming action role-playing game, "Final Fantasy VII Remake" is not likely to be unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show 2016. In fact, the developer does not intend to release the game anytime soon.
Rumors are running rampant that Square Enix has reached a decision to leave out "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" in its impressive lineup at the impending Tokyo Game Show 2016 as the title is not slated to hit the store shelves in near future.
While the team behind the remake have remained tight lipped regarding the "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" release date, rumors doing rounds hint that the current games schedule place the release for the highly anticipated title in late 2017.
Square Enix has already divulged the list for the Tokyo Game Show 2016 and listed some notable game installments including "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue" and "Final Fantasy XV" on its official website.
Other top-drawer titles slated to be displayed at the trade show include the new "Hitman" game and "Deus Ex; Mankind Divided" sequel.
If rumors proved to be true, "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" will come after the release format of "Hitman." Rather than one full-version release, the remake is slated to make an appearance as multi-part game; each launch will be released as post-launch episodes.
If you've been waiting with bated breath for "KH3" release date details, brace yourself! Unfortunately, "Kingdom Hearts 3" is not on the list.
This could mean that the new game and "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" are anticipated for the later part of next year and beyond. The publisher will then hold other grand trade shows in future to take the wraps off the games, most probably during E3 2017 slated to be held from June 13 to June 15.
Meanwhile, game producer Yoshinori Kitase finally opened up about the battle system divulging how it will look like. According to Kitase, "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" has not completely adopted an action-oriented style, noting that it may wind up featuring one that mimics "Dissidia" games.
Considering the possibility that the remake may not turn out to be a full action game, avid gamers will be thrilled to know that the old Active Time Battle has been dumped.
Tokyo Game Show 2016 kicks off September 15 and will conclude on September 18. Square Enix will reportedly live stream the events in the last couple of days.
