After years of asking, your Final Fantasy VII full remake dreams are coming true. It’s happening. And you can bet the internet has something to say about that.
So did Square Enix’s stock prices shortly after the announcement was made.
The game is heading to the PlayStation 4 first, but from the sound of it, this Final Fantasy VII remake won’t be out for a while. The game’s official release says that Square Enix has “begun production” on the title.
Now, we have time to kill, comments to write, and reactions to make.

And, of course, Twitter:
“They’re remaking FF7. Awesome! Definitely buying. I’m looking forward to it! My youth!”
”This is awful! Square Enix is finished! (It’s the jinx that if Square Enix releases a FFVII remake, they’ll go bankrupt)”
“While you’re at it, could you maybe do FF 5 and 6 remakes, too?”
“Rather than FF7, I want to remake my student days.”
