The Final Fantasy VII remake gives a facelift to a classic generation of epicness.
Today at the PlayStation Expo 2015, the long awaited remake of one of the most renowned RPG games ever made, Final Fantasy VII, had a new trailer shown to the world.
Along with the Final Fantasy VII remake came some English voice acting, as well as some gameplay footage, which hadn’t been shown up until this point. From the trailer, we see that the game plays quite a bit differently than its roots, with the Battle HUD looking much like that of the Kingdom Hearts series. Battles also seem to be much more fast-paced. Environments are also changed a bit, with a gorgeous re-imagining of Shinra, the company that you were up against in the original game. As well, the gameplay looks to be running on the same engine as Final Fantasy XV, and also seems to showcase cover mechanics that Final Fantasy XV’s demo had.
Originally announced earlier this year at E3 2015, the game will have the same director, Tetsuya Nomura, as well as the original game’s story writer Kazushige Nojima, and will feature brand new gameplay and story mechanics that were not in the original game.
This is definitely a game to look forward to, as it shows that Square Enix is actively working on the project. No release date has been set as of yet, but the Final Fantasy VII remake will premiere on the Playstation 4.
