The #Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2017 is set to take place next week, and #Square Enix recently announced its official game lineup that will make an appearance at the said event.

Fans, however, are wondering if there is a chance that the company is planning to reveal any information on the long-awaited #Final Fantasy 7” remake. Here’s what we know so far.

TGS 2017 dates and setting

TGS is touted as Asia’s largest gaming event held. It takes place in Japan each year and is highly attended by giant Japanese game developers. These include the likes of Sony, Square Enix, SEGA, Capcom, Bandai Namco Entertainment, and others.

This year, it is slated to happen between September 21 and 24.

It will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.

Square Enix official lineup

Interestingly, the company recently revealed its official game lineup at Asia’s biggest gaming convention this year. The list includes incoming video games from the game developer as well as existing titles that will get new content in the form of expansion packs.

While it mostly consists of “Final Fantasy” video games, small projects such as “Lost Sphear” and the new RPG for Nintendo Switch called “Project Octopath Traveler” will also debut at TGS.

Square Enix is also expected to reveal the first details of the newly announced “Secret of Mana” 3D remake. The “Dragon Quest X,” “Evil Within 2,” and “Dia Horizon” are also included on the list.

Fans can also look forward to getting fresh updates on a number of major video game releases from the Japanese developer.

Most likely, a new character reveal for “Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT” will happen, and additional details about the “Final Fantasy 15” PC and mobile versions will be announced.

Is 'FF7' remake news plausible?

Some game pundits believe that TGS is a perfect platform to announce something big about future HD remakes and the much-awaited “Final Fantasy 7” remake. Players received the first details regarding its development almost two years ago at PlayStation Experience 2015, and there has been no concrete news since.

The confirmed lineup does not indicate an "FF7" remake, but the possibility of its surprise appearance can’t be ruled out. It's possible that fans will be seeing a big reveal at Tokyo Game Show 2017 next week.

Last month, game director Tetsuya Nomura was quoted as saying that the company is planning some big news on the development of the highly-anticipated remake. Nomura added that the company is saving the title's announcement for a big occasion.

This, however, remains as speculation, and fans can cross their fingers that they will soon lay their eyes on a brand new gameplay trailer for the “Final Fantasy 7” remake. The game is currently in development as an exclusive title for the PS4 console.
