Final Fantasy VII day officially registered in Japan

Final Fantasy VII

Square Enix has officially registered January 31st in their home country of Japan, forever commemorating the original RPG’s release.

The original Final Fantasy VII was released on January 31st (it’s already the 31st in Japan now) back in 1997, twenty six years ago. Since then, the original game has been available on PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Switch, PS4, and smartphones.

Director on the original game and producer on the big remake, Yoshinori Kitase, shared a message in celebration:

Final Fantasy VII Day Officially Registered 

The 31st of January 1997, the day that FINAL FANTASY VII came out, was not just a significant day tor the FINAL FANTASY series, but also marked when so many big things started moving for those of us who worked on the game.

I remember being overwhelmed at the breakneck speed with which video game technology was evolving, but also dreaming things for the future.

With the establishment of this official anniversary day, I will now always remember these things, and hold them dearly in my heart.
