Today’s Final Fantasy 7 25th anniversary stream was packed with exciting announcements for fans of the storied series. The event kicked off with the news that Intergrade is launching on Steam, but things really kicked off when the Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core remaster was revealed along with a Winter 2022 release window.
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade will be released on Steam on June 17th. The PC port has been accessible on the Epic Games Store since December 2021, but if you prefer to buy your PC games through Valve’s shop, you’ll be able to get it shortly. If you haven’t played the Intergrade version yet, it comes with a new narrative DLC centred on Yuffie, new Classic difficulty settings, a picture feature, and other visual and performance improvements. Square Enix has stated that the Steam Deck will be fully supported.
It wasn’t shown today, but we recently saw more of Final Fantasy 16 and learned it’s due to launch in summer 2023. After scoring a degree in English from ASU, I worked as a copy editor while freelancing for places like SFX Magazine, Screen Rant, Game Revolution, and MMORPG on the side. Now, as GamesRadar’s west coast Staff Writer, I’m responsible for managing the site’s western regional executive branch, AKA my apartment, and writing about whatever horror game I’m too afraid to finish.
Better yet, we finally saw the long-awaited reveal of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2, which is now officially titled Rebirth. The sequel’s first trailer showed off a big old open world and revealed a bunch of story teasers courtesy of an offscreen conversation between Cloud and Aerith. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is due to launch on PS5 next winter. Finally, it was revealed today that the third part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake trilogy is already in active development, with creative director Tetsuya Nomura himself saying he’s “working towards the completion of the series.”
