Final Fantasy VII Remake Seems Popular At The Tokyo Game Show

By Brian Ashcraft on at

In what should surprise absolutely no one, Final Fantasy VII Remake is drawing long lines at the Tokyo Game Show. I think people in Japan might be excited about this game. Call it a hunch!

Yesterday was the first public date for the 2019 Tokyo Game Show. As soon as the general public started being let in, many attendees started making a beeline to either the Sony booth or the Square Enix to play the upcoming FFVII Remake.

At around 9:40 a.m., the end of the line at the Square Enix booth looked like this:

Sony had cut off the FFVII Remake line by 10 a.m., along with several other titles. The red stickers said that the demo sessions have ended for the day.

Square Enix, which had a significantly larger FFVII Remake set up with more demo stations, didn’t cut off the line until sometime around 10:10 a.m. or thereafter.

Even the wait to take photos with Cloud’s Hardy-Daytona motorcycle was long. Square Enix was passing out tickets for attendees to come back later so they don’t have to stand in line for extended periods of time.

This is me going out on a limb, but I think people in Japan are excited about Final Fantasy VII Remake.
