After years of asking, your Final Fantasy VII full remake dreams are coming true. It’s happening. And you can bet the internet has something to say about that.
So did Square Enix’s stock prices shortly after the announcement was made.
The game is heading to the PlayStation 4 first, but from the sound of it, this Final Fantasy VII remake won’t be out for a while. The game’s official release says that Square Enix has “begun production” on the title.
Now, we have time to kill, comments to write, and reactions to make.
Here are Kotaku commenters:

Okay but really. Look at that muted and realistic FF7 trailer. Now try to imagine any of your favourite scenes in that style. Yeah.

Final Fantasy 7 remake directed by Tetsuya Nomura. Don't forget, last time he directed something FF7 related we got Advent Children.

“This is awful! Square Enix is finished! (It’s the jinx that if Square Enix releases a FFVII remake, they will go bankrupt)”
