There are quite a few celebrations this year, such as Kingdom Heart‘s 20th anniversary, Persona is celebrating its 25th anniversary and so much more. Among them is also the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, which many deem as the turning point for the entire franchise into what it is today. Of course, there’s always a lot of excitement around these celebrations, as there are high hopes for reveals and confirmations that fans are clamoring for.
In addition to the recent release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, there was a new wave of entries in the numbered part of the franchise, such as the recently released The First Soldier mobile game with Ever Crisis on the horizon. We’re still anxiously awaiting any news on the second entry in the Remake franchise, but to hold us over we got a brand new logo celebrating the 25th anniversary of the franchise, which you can check out here:
Even the Kingdom Hearts franchise continued its tradition of paying homage to the series with a visual that recreates an iconic cover from the game but uses assets from its own franchise instead. They did something similar during its 20th anniversary
There’s a stream planned for today, but there was a confirmation that we shouldn’t expect any news regarding the Remake sequel, as only The First Soldier content has been hinted at so far. Of course, there’s always a chance they might surprise fans, but it seems a bit unlikely as of now. We also haven’t heard anything on Ever Crisis since its announcement last year. Yet, there have been hints that the franchise has started an interest in other spinoffs after Remake’s success. For now, the celebration seems to be mainly for the past rather than the future.
