Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and the PS4 to PS5 upgrade will debut worldwide on June 10, 2021. Previously, Final Fantasy VII Remake co-director Naoki Hamaguchi and producer Yoshinori Kitase teased surprises for the base game’s upcoming sequel.

“For those who played Part 1, they already have an idea of what kind of game we are making. We want to create a new game that lives up to their exceptions but also throws them off, in a good way though,” said Kitase.
