Turns out I woke up late and missed the first gameplay footage of Square Enix’ Final Fantasy VII Remake.
First of all, HOLY HELL it’s one pretty looking game.
Second of all, I’m sort of thankful they’ve decided to ditch the old gameplay for a more real-time FFXV- style game engine. It’s gonna be interesting seeing all the old locales remade to fit the new game. Barret’s revamped design looks badass, even Biggs, Wedge and Jessie look great. Even with the new gameplay direction, though, there’s still plenty there to cash in on the nostalgia FF7 generates.
