Final Fantasy VII is getting a remake on the PlayStation 4

Cloud Strife Final Fantasy VII

A thousand times yes.

Sony made more than a few dreams come true during its big E3 2015 press event, but the news that Square Enix will remake arguably one of the most beloved games of all time might take the cake. 

Almost 20 years after its release on Sony’s original PlayStation, Square Enix will reimagine Final Fantasy VII for the PlayStation 4. We don’t yet know much, but we’ve got this trailer featuring a far-less-pixelated Cloud Strife and a Buster Sword, so this is us not complaining.
