A new look at Square Enix’s remake of Final Fantasy VII at The Game Awards gives a slightly closer look at Cloud Strife, its cipher of a protagonist with a tortured backstory. The latest trailer for the game gives some hints about Cloud’s standoffish personality and his relationship with Tifa, although it didn’t present much in the way of new footage we haven’t already seen.

New box art that recently appeared online revealed that contrary to previous assumptions, the remake of Final Fantasy VII won’t be a PS4 exclusive forever. It’ll eventually make its way to Xbox One and PC–although those release dates haven’t been revealed yet. The art suggests FF7 will be available only on PS4 until March 2021, so that looks to be when the Square Enix’s exclusivity deal with Sony will expire. We already know the game will be playable on PS5, so it seems very possible it could make its way to Xbox One Scarlett as well.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is set for release on PS4 in March 2020.
