If you know me even a little, you’ll know that Final Fantasy VII (FFVII) is my all-time favourite game, and that I started my nostalgic replay of it this year (a post about it is in the works). The original really holds up to the nostalgia test, but when the teaser for the remake was revealed at E3 this year, I was absolutely thrilled.
This week’s PlayStation Experience showcased a two-minute gameplay trailer of the opening moments of the game – packed full of nostalgic scenery and music.
I’m not gonna lie, I actually shed tears watching this. I literally had my hand over my mouth, weeping in excitement.
The remake looks AMAZING, Barret looks perfect (as do the A.V.A.L.A.N.C.H.E. members), and the action-based gameplay is gorgeous. I have to say, it’s clear that Square Enix have taken a lot of time and effort in bringing this cult classic into current gen style, whilst keeping the elements that fans love. I absolutely cannot WAIT to play it next year!!
