Since Final Fantasy VII’s debut on the original PlayStation marked a before and after, this “Final Fantasy VII Day” is meant to commemorate that day alone.
The PlayStation’s first JRPG, Final Fantasy VII, was published on January 31, 1997. It has recently made a comeback on the PS4, PS5, PC, and Steam Deck under the titles Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade.
The studio has now confirmed through Twitter, “We are thrilled to report that ‘Final Fantasy VII Day’ has been legally registered in Japan to mark the anniversary of the original game’s release.
Final Fantasy VII was released in Japan 26 years ago, and Yoshinori Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura announced new projects last year. However, this celebration will continue in 2023 with fresh “campaigns.”
The tweet continues, “To celebrate, we leave you with a special greeting from Yoshinori Kitase, producer of the Final Fantasy VII remake project.”
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion was released in 2022, while the much anticipated Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be released in 2023.
The release of Final Fantasy VII on January 31, 1997, was not the only significant day in the Final Fantasy story. Additionally, it signalled a turning point for everyone involved in the game, when many things started to go in that direction.
I remember being both fascinated by the rapid pace of each videogame technology’s advancement and hopeful about the big things that were ahead.
By establishing this official anniversary day, I promise to remember these things always and to keep them close to my heart.
Square Enix is still devotedly preserving their sagas

What news may Square Enix disclose in the upcoming months now that they have trademarked “Final Fantasy VII Day” to commemorate the release of Final Fantasy VII on January 31?
