Final Fantasy VII Remake Recreates The Original Game’s Iconic Box Art
It is hard to believe that after so many years of waiting, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is less than six months away from being released. Square Enix also seems to be counting down the days ’til March 2020, and the Japanese publisher has unveiled some pretty impressive fan service in celebration of the game’s impending launch.
Square Enix recently took to Twitter to show off a brand new piece of artwork created for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. The artwork is actually a recreation of the original Final Fantasy VII’s iconic box art, featuring protagonist Cloud Strife gazing at the Shinra Electric Company’s headquarters. Seeing how far we’ve come from the boxy Cloud Strife of old is certainly fun to think about, and seeing the original box art being recreated in such a way is getting us even more hyped for the upcoming remake. Check it out below:
On September 7, 1997, we released the original FINAL FANTASY VII in North America.
To celebrate the anniversary we’ve remade one of the most iconic pieces of artwork from the original game, and now there are just under 6 months until the launch of #FinalFantasy VII Remake! #FF7R pic.twitter.com/OLjw4g6kOQ

Speaking of Shinra, fans waiting for new footage of the Final Fantasy VII Remake needn’t wait too long, as it has been revealed that Square Enix plans to reveal more characters from the Shinra Electric Company at TGS 2019. It is still unknown if that means we’ll be getting our first look at The Turks or more of the upper management for Shinra, though either way it’s definitely something to look forward to.
Final Fantasy VII Remake launches exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
