Japan has officially made January 31st Final Fantasy VII Day in celebration of when the legendary JRPG first launched in the Land of the Rising Sun.

The news of this wonderful day being officially dedicated to celebrate all things Final Fantasy VII was announced on Twitter with a special message from series veteran and producer, Yoshinori Kitase.

Check out Chained Echoes, which we called a "perfect modern-day ‘retro’ RPG" in our review, below:

Translated by Gematsu, here’s what Yoshinori Kitase had to say on this momentous occasion:

“The 31st of January 1997, the day that Final Fantasy VII came out, was not just a significant day for 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 big 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.”

It’s been a wonderful time for Final Fantasy fans in recent years. Not only did we get the glorious FFVII Remake in 2020, but we also had the remake of PSP classic Crisis Core which we labelled as the “ultimate fan prequel” in our review.

What's more, if that wasn't enough Final Fantasy goodness for you, we still have FFXVI arriving on 23rd, June this year and the next chapter of the FF7 Remake, Rebirth which is currently scheduled to release late this winter.

That’s assuming, of course, that Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth doesn't get delayed. However, let’s be honest, a delay from the legendary JRPG series from Square Enix is always always a possibility. That being, if any delay is required to allow a game to be the best it can be, then so be it.
