Square Enix is ramping up its promotion for the Final Fantasy VII Remake, but not everything is going as planned.
An train decorated with the characters from the game nicknamed “Battle Train” created for an event announced a while ago has begun running on the high-traffic Yamanote Line in Tokyo.
Unfortunately, as I mentioned before, not everything has gone according to Square Enix’s plans.
As announced on the game’s official Twitter account, the event — that was supposed to happen on the train on February 22 with attendees selected via lottery after an application process — has been canceled due to concerns for the Coronavirus outbreak.
Square Enix, of course, apologized to those who were selected and were looking forward to attending the event.
If you’d like to see and learn more about the game, you can enjoy the opening cutscene, the latest screenshots, the previous, spectacular trailer that revealed Red XIII, another large batch of screenshots, and the previous trailer from The Game Awards.
We also have some wallpapers and avatars showcasing Cloud, more starring Barret, some displaying Tifa, more featuring Aerith, another gallery of screenshots, a few recent videos, a couple more clips, a charming TV commercal mixing live-action and a nostalgic feel, another trailer, plenty more beautiful screrenshots, and gameplay with the reveal of the Classic Mode.
The first game of the Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on PS4 on April 10, 2020.
We recently learned that the game will be a PS4 exclusive only since April 10, 2021. After that, it could come to other platforms, even if nothing has been officially confirmed by Square Enix yet besides the date.
