Square Enix has pulled out all the stop in the Sony E3 press conference this year with an announcement we’ve been waiting for since the launch of PlayStation 3. Final Fantasy 7 will be given a complete remake on PlayStation 4.

While Square Enix was not able to conjure up any footage of Final Fantasy 7 game play at E3 of this year, most of the gaming community may well have come to tears at the official trailer released today. As one of the most anticipated remakes in recent memory, Final Fantasy 7 will finally be available on current generation platforms and allow gamers of all ages to relive the most epic saga in the series’ history.

Square has yet to announce a full release date on the title, but here’s a look at what we saw today and what brought a tear to my eye. Absolutely astounding.
