Final Fantasy VII Concert Set Just Before E3, Sparks Imminent Remake News Speculation
The good folks over at Square Enix have announced Final Fantasy VII – A symphonic Reunion, labeled as the first ever official concert dedicated to one of the most highly beloved role playing games of all time. While this news on its own is exciting, the actual date for the concert is June 9th of this year, just two short days prior to E3 2019. As such, speculation has begun to surface suggesting that we may be seeing some Final Fantasy VII Remake news at E3.
Square Enix made the announcement via the official Final Fantasy Twitter, revealing that the seemingly one-off concert will be held live at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with ticket prices starting at $77.77, which has multiple meanings if you’re familiar at all with the game. Famed musician Arnie Roth has been announced as the conductor for the orchestra, who has spent these past few years also conducting both Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy and A New World: Intimate Music from Final Fantasy.

One link between the newly announced concert and Distant Worlds is the use of a giant HD projection onstage, which will be used to show footage from Final Fantasy VII. The latest Distant Worlds tour showed footage from both the original Final Fantasy VII and the Remake, and as such it is very likely that the concert will show off new, as yet unreleased footage from the Remake. We may even receive an official release date for the first part of the remake, despite Square Enix’s conference scheduled within days of the concert. It is certainly possible that the timing of the concert has nothing to do with new Remake news, though this likely isn’t the case. Either way, here’s hoping Final Fantasy VII makes a strong showing at E3 2019.
