Here’s an extra special treat for diehard fans of the original Final Fantasy VII. At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix and Dengeki Hobby showed off their new line of Final Fantasy VII Remake figurines and merchandise at Square’s official booth. But the crown jewel of the display is clearly these figures, which are modeled after the low-poly in-game models from the original title:

The figurines are gorgeous and a great reminder of how charming these old school graphics can be. Bad news is that according to both the status update and Dengeki’s official site, these cuties are a part of a lottery event.
There does seem to be good news, however, as the official English Twitter account for Final Fantasy VII Remake also shared the figurines:

Hopefully this means we’ll be getting a global release for them, which I would capitalize on immediately. The English account also released a recreation of the iconic art from the original game, so that’s a double dose of nostalgia.
According to an interview with Director Tetsuya Nomura, Final Fantasy VII Remake will have changes to the Materia system. The Materia will be utilized the same as in the original. However, with the combat system being different this time around there will be Materia from the old game that included in the remake. Conversely there will be brand new Materia in the newer title.
Earlier this year Final Fantasy VII Remake was playable at both E3 and Gamescom. During the former event, Remake won Best of Show from Game Critics Awards. Meanwhile the game’s official Twitter account is dropping new images from the game here and there, like this one of the Shinra building. They also released new images of Midgar’s Sector 8 on the same Twitter account.
The title will release for PS4 on March 3, 2020. From what we saw so far, the game seems to be promising with a vast world to explore as well as a new combat system that still feels like Final Fantasy VII. You can pre-order the Deluxe or Standard edition on Amazon.
