Square Enix has announced a global orchestra tour to celebrate Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s upcoming release.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is still a couple of months way from release ( Xbox players will have to wait even longer ), and Square Enix is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the occasion.
Firstly, the game’s opening cinematic has been released, showing off the city of Midgar and setting the overall mood for the adventure, subtly showing how the Shinra corporation’s efforts to run the city is having a dire effect on the planet.
Fans of the original will certainly be hit with a wave of nostalgia, as it’s essentially an expanded version of the original game’s opening, even having very similar shots of Aerith.
What’s just as exciting, though, is the announcement of an Orchestra World Tour, where fans can experience pieces from the game’s soundtrack live, performed by an orchestra and full chorus, accompanied by ‘stunning, high-definition video scenes from the new game created exclusively for this concert’.
The tour will begin this June in Los Angeles and travel to various other cities, including London, Paris, and Tokyo.
Square Enix confirmed that composer Arnie Roth, who has worked on previous Final Fantasy concerts, will be returning for this one.

Tickets aren’t available for any of the concerts yet, so don’t panic about not getting a seat just yet. But be sure to pay attention to the official site and Square Enix’s social media accounts.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake will release for PlayStation 4 on 10 April.
