Beloved, unique and emblematic FFVII left its mark on millions of players around the world.

With a deep story, wonderful characters and outstanding gameplay, this era of consoles is up to a great task by bringing the legend of Cloud and his fight against the mighty Shinra.

Outstanding visuals, a renewed battle system and a mix of the best of the FF franchise are set to fascinate new and old fans of the classical RPG.

Something that you cannot deny from Square Enix is their ability to make gorgeous complex games.

Combine that with the masterful storytelling created by the late Square (Pre 2003 merge with Enix) and you will experience the formula of a GOAT.

Taking the franchise back to its roots of meaningful stories, breathtaking scenery, and powerful OST, Square Enix by the hands of the originals Tetsuya Nomura, Yoshinori Kitase, and the legendary music composer Nobuo Uematsu, is aiming to enchant our controls once again.

And something that FFVII will try to bring to the new generation is the role that plays a great story.

When the latest trends of games are working around shooters and multi-players, Final Fantasy’s core is the very basics of an engaging story.

Unique characters, unexpected plots, big levels, memorable music, and remarkable gameplay.

Pieces that FFVII Remake is aiming to connect and by the looks of the latest demo, expand.

A crisp Voice Over that left behind the classical text dialogs and taking greater risks with a renew Active Time Battle makes this entry a feast to play.

A feast that needed 3 CD’s to be enjoyed on the 1997’s Original.

So, this time Remake will be released as a multi-part series.

The first part will be focused on the events of Midgar, where the group AVALANCHE is on the mission to blow the Sector 1 Reactor owned by the mighty Shinra Electric Power Company, draining the Lifestream of the Planet.

The very source of life.

That’s when the path of Cloud, Barret, Tifa, Aerith and Sephiroth cross, in a battle between AVALANCHE and Shinra for the life of the planet.

A complex story needed the power of the new consoles and technology to aim for new heights.

So, this could be a fantasy fulfilled, check out the opening sequence Courtesy of PlayStation

And be sure to fulfill the need to play with such beloved and badass characters.

You can count the richness of a game series by the way their characters morph the memories of gamers around the world.

Cloud, Tifa, Sephiroth, Aerith and every member of the FFVII team became part of the history of video games with significant moments, breaking the barrier of classic stories and expanding its universe on other media such as films, books, and a virtual reality attraction by Universal Studios.

So, an expanded universe demanded a new retelling of the original with the boost of the latest tech.

But this new era also demands a new way to play the Cloud’s story.

The classic Active Time Battle system of combat by turns and brand of the franchise had to be reformed.

Combining the best of the latest FF entries and other classic franchises such as Kingdom Hearts, this new combat system creates dynamic and epic battles, where your strategy and smart use of the abilities of your party dictates the flow of the game.

The random battles (and farming opportunities) appears to be a thing of the past.

Now, prepare your buttons to attack your enemies in real-time, fill your bar to launch your unique abilities, cast spells, use a needed item or why not, summon a badass Ifrit, Leviathan or Shiva to KO your foes.

Tension flowing, action madness and above all, epic combats with level up enemies.

This new take on how to play FF promises to be the cherry on the top.

And when a new generation of gamers get the opportunity to live and breathe a masterful Final Fantasy, directly from the golden era is a win for the industry.

Fans will get to relive their favorite moments with the boost of the graphic power of this generation of consoles.

So, we cannot wait to play again this wonderful story and so should you.
