One interesting point to note, with the Final Fantasy VII Remake box art: there’s no mention of it being “part one” of many.
Colour us excited for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. We’ve gone from aghast traditionalists to concerned onlookers, to cautiously optimistic then actually looking forward to it, in the space of a few years.
Here’s something we’d not yet seen, however: the Final Fantasy VII Remake box art.
Specifically, according to the email from Square Enix’s PR team, this is the “North American package art” – so other regions may vary to some degree – but here’s our first look at the Final Fantasy VII Remake box art.
We have… some thoughts.
- This may be the first time we’ve seen the Final Fantasy VII Remake box art, but it’s not the first time we’ve seen that image of Cloud standing in front of the Shinra tower. That one’s been doing the rounds for a while.
- It may retain the classic meteor logo, but it’s a lot busier than the original game’s art. There’s something classic about a big meteor on a white background that’s lost here.
- Nowhere on the cover does it mention the fact that this is “part one” of the Final Fantasy VII Remake saga. The cynical among you might think that’s deliberately disingenuous, but we’re secretly hoping for a return to the hyphen-2 naming conventions of old, a la Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy XIII-2.
- This isn’t a surprise, but there’s only a PS4 cover. A reminder, if it were needed, that the remake isn’t coming to Xbox One or PC. Yet.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake – well, the first part, at least – launches worldwide on March 3, 2020.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
