Final Fantasy 7 remake gameplay trailer is high definition nostalgia – CNET


It’s back!

Square Enix

Square Enix has been talking about the Final Fantasy VII remake for what feels like decades. During Sony’s State of Play presentation on Thursday, they finally dropped another glimpse at the long in development title.

The trailer, embedded below, is only a very fleeting glimpse of what’s to come. The gameplay is looking mighty slick — and Cloud’s hair is looking incredibly full of hairspray — and that’s really all we know right now.

As sister site Gamespot points out, it appears that most of the trailer revolves around the first bombing mission but in glorious high definition and without the blocky bodies of the original. There’s a brief encounter with the Guard Scorpion — the game’s first boss — and fleeting images of Aeris/Aerith handing Cloud a flower.

The Final Fantasy VII remake was first announced at E3 2015, but Square Enix have been relatively hush about it since. Still no word whether or not this new version will include the famous bath scene and we didn’t see it at E3 last year, to our dismay, but will Square Enix give us a little more in 2019? Let’s hope so.

Sony also announced a remake of the cult classic MediEvil along with a handful of other games. You can read all about it at Gamespot.
