Final Fantasy 30th anniversary plans will be revealed soon By Erren Van Duine on December 13, 2016 at 8:42 AM

Square Enix will reveal their plans for the Final Fantasy series 30th anniversary “soon” says franchise boss Shinji Hashimoto. His response was featured in Famitsu this week, where game developers were asked specifically about their expectations for 2017.

Hashimoto notes the special Real Escape Game x Final Fantasy XIV “Escape from the Binding Coil of Bahamut” won’t be the only thing they have planned for the 30th anniversary.

Several months ago, Square Enix opened an official portal site to celebrate the milestone, with its actual anniversary set to take place on December 18, 2017.

    I guess we’ll get the FF12 remaster in the first half of 2017, and the first part of the FF7 remake near the FF 30th anniversary date.

  • I wonder if that rumor of an Ultimate FF Collector’s Edition Box will turn out true. Also, I hope VII remake part one releases this year, but that’s just being super-optimistic.

  • Krijn van Alten

    2017 is just within a month time.

  • Trenyce Wallock

    Probably a release date for ff7 remake on the 30th anniv?

  • Adam

    You don’t seriously think they’d cram everything into a single day, do you? This would be a year long celebration.

  • gabrieuTG

    Probably an annoucement of FFXVI à la versus XIII style that we will only be able to play on 2026

  • gabrieuTG

    Joking, maybe an announcement of 7Remake release date and a FFXV Complete Edition with all the story bits abscent for those who don’t have good internet

  • Daniel

    Hope they confirm those rumors about those collections of remasters for ps4

  • Invictus

    Final Fantasy XV : Complete Edition

    I just want my FF7 Remake.


    i was expecting 12HD to come out sometime during the year. and then FF information regarding 7remake or something else at e3 2017. with an event in December regarding the anniversary. , yeah. this was what i was expecting, ..what will be at the event idk, that was my original point, its a year away. they arent announcing the event concrete details,

  • Codes McGodes

    By this year, do you mean 2017? Cuz ain’t no way they’re surprise releasing it in the next two weeks.

  • gabrieuTG

    They wanted Nomura back to this game. Tabata got an the inspiration

  • Randy Marsh

    For anniversary events they usually due things the year of, not the day of. Case in point, the FF 20th and 25th anniversaries. Usually a whole year of releases and announcements. The usually do the announcement for the big thing around summer.

  • Randy Marsh

    Seems FFXII HD remaster is due for June 8, 2017 according to Best Buy and Target two weeks ago, not sure if these dates are still up, or this was a mistake on their part for an unintentional leaked date. But usually retailers are known for their goofs in accidentally putting up unintentional fake release dates

  • Krijn van Alten

    You do know that these days anniversaries are celebrated one year round, not just on one day.


    yeah thats why i said ff12HD and 7remake updates at e3, and 12HD released through the year. and i said in another comment on this page that dissidia is possible as well for ps4. and the ps4 collection rumor. ive been implying its over the year tbh.


    yup. thats why i already said e3 2017 would have updates. and games releasing through the year like 12HD and the rumored but probably untrue 7remake and ps4 collection.
