Ladies and gentlemen, it’s finally here! Square Enix has now released the long-awaited Demo for Final Fantasy VII, so fans can now download it via the PlayStation Store. They also released a new video that announces the demo’s release as well:

As for the main game itself, the developers have a bit of bad news for fans of Red XIII. Co-director Naoki Hamaguchi sat down with  VG24/7 and he revealed that they have decided that Red XIII won’t be playable in the main game, but will just be a guest character.

“We felt the point at which Red XIII joins the party in the story is very late on so we thought okay, if we’re gonna have him as a full character and try and get the player to enjoy his character development arc and growth as a character through that, it’s not really enough time to do that. We thought that the best way to have him involved was as a guest character. Normally throughout the game you’ll be playing as a three-man party, but you will have him as a guest character that fights alongside you during the the last part of the story.”

Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for the PS4 on April 10, 2020. It will be a PS4 exclusive for about a year, before getting its release for other platforms.
