The reunion at hand may bring joy, it may bring fear, but let us embrace whatever it brings. At the PlayStation Experience 2015, we unveiled the very first gameplay teaser of Final Fantasy VII Remake. If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, let’s watch it together above!
They are coming back to Midgar… It’s still early days but we want to show you a glimpse of how the game looks and perhaps more importantly for you guys – how it plays.
There’s a lot of familiar scenes which I’m sure fans of the original FFVII will recognise. You see the famous train from the Sector 7 slums, the Sector 1 Mako Reactor and some of the streets of Midgar so you get a feel for how you move around throughout Gaia. And how awesome does the Guard Scorpion look now?!
So gameplay is probably what you really wanted to know about since the game’s announcement. This new trailer gives you a glimpse into how Final Fantasy VII Remake will play and you’re probably thinking that it has changed quite a bit. It definitely looks more action oriented and has a real feeling of speed. There’s a lot going on in this trailer so hopefully you’ve managed to pick out all of the details.
I should point out that all of the footage shown of Final Fantasy VII Remake is work in progress footage so the final game may look slightly different to what you’ve seen here. Oh and I’m sure you recognise it but the music featured in the trailer is the “Opening – Bombing Mission” from Distant Worlds: music from Final Fantasy.
Final Fantasy VII is a very special game to me and I’m sure it is to a lot of gamers around the world too. The reaction from fans across the globe when Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced at the PlayStation press conference at E3 2015, was unprecedented! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it, so I hope you like what you see in the new trailer. I know I do and I can’t wait to see more.
One other thing that was announced at PlayStation Experience 2015 is that the original version of Final Fantasy VII is now available on PS4 via PlayStation Network! It comes complete with a list of trophies to earn and to celebrate the games release you can purchase at a special launch price until 12th December 2015.
Everyone who purchases the game will also receive a static custom theme, featuring Cloud and the cityscape of Midgar from Final Fantasy VII Remake (which you can see a preview of below). I know which game I’ll be playing over the holidays! Let’s see if I can earn the platinum trophy before the end of the year!
You can purchase the original Final Fantasy VII on PlayStation Store here.
