It’s been four years since Square Enix first announced it was remaking beloved JRPG “Final Fantasy VII,” but in the past month we have gotten a new teaser trailer, a new full trailer, a battle explanation, and a release date (March 3, 2020).
The new trailers appear to suggest Square Enix has, thankfully, ignored social justice warrior complaints and demands from over the years. Back in 2015, I wrote that the developer shouldn’t give in to the SJWs because those making the complaints clearly haven’t examined the game or paid attention to the characters and their environment.
For example, for years SJWs have complained that Barret Wallace is a racist stereotype. As I explained in 2015, he’s not. He is an angry, animated character, but so is Cid Highwind, a white character. Both swear constantly and shake their fists.
