Square Enix has unleashed the sumptuous Final Fantasy 7 Remake intro sequence for your viewing pleasure. Those of you old enough to remember the original game’s intro back in the day will definitely get a kick out of this revamped version to say the least – let those memories flood back!
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intro
There’s a bunch of new scenes in the Final Fantasy 7 Remake intro, with shots of everyday life in Midgar- children playing, folk going about their daily business, streets bustling with traffic and shoppers. Then of course there’s the iconic shot of Aerith that pans back to reveal the city in full, before zooming in on the train arriving at the station.
Check it out below, and be sure to have a look at the latest screenshots while you’re at it.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 on April 10, and will be exclusive to Sony’s current-generation console for a year. The recent delay has not changed that, either.
In case you haven’t been keeping up, the game covers the Midgar portion of the original game, but it’s been expanded considerably to accommodate two Blu-ray discs. You can also expect to see more on the characters of Biggs, Wedge, and Jesse this time around.
Given the proximity to the PS5‘s release next holiday season, it’s pretty much all but guaranteed we’ll see future instalments (and possibly the first part) on Sony’s next-generation system. Let’s just hope it’s not another five year-wait, eh?
The original version of Final Fantasy 7 was released back in 1997 for the PSOne, and has sold over 11 million copies worldwide. The game also helped the series gain more exposure in western regions, and is considered one of the best video games of all time.
