Today at the live PlayStation Experience keynote address, Square Enix revealed the trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake — and if you’re at all into what Final Fantasy XV is showcasing, the FF7 remake may be right up your alley!
This is one of the first times we’ve seen motion, gameplay, and voice acting for the upcoming remake — the design is a third-person perspective that seems very immersive, showcasing some of the dimly-lit streets of Midgar, and during the trailer we see Cloud, Barret, and members of AVALANCHE in action — in footage that even looks like real gameplay as well as some very exquisitely-rendered cutscenes. Cloud’s Buster Sword, of course, is as unreasonably huge as ever.
You wonder how long Square has had this in the works for how soon this trailer comes after the initial announcement — but as a die-hard Final Fantasy fan, this is an exciting re-imagining for anyone attached to the world and story of Final Fantasy VII, if not the classic turn-based gameplay.
Check out the trailer (with a number of YouTubers absolutely freaking out prefacing it) here!
