Square Enix has released a new video for its upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake, however, this one relives the opening sequence of the original Final Fantasy VII from 1997. The five-minute visual above offers a wave of familiar moments from the original opening alongside some new moments made especially for the remake.
The video above showcases a more detailed look at the gritty metropolis setting of Midgar, which will serve as the title’s primary location.
