Eighteen years after the release of the original, Square Enix and Sony announced last night at E3 that they're remaking Final Fantasy VII for PlayStation 4. Presumably other consoles will follow.
Development of the aptly titled Final Fantasy VII Remake will be led by key members of the original game team, including producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Tetsuya Nomura and scenario writer Kazushige Nojima.
Released in 1997, Final Fantasy VII was a critical and commercial success, selling more than 11 million copies worldwide. It's often credited with popularizing the Japanese role-playing video game style in the global market.
