Our hype levels are off the charts!

ONE Store Beta Now Available

It’s just a bit under two months til the release of the Final Fantasy VII remake, and now we’re even more excited for it thanks to a new video released by Square Enix. The new video isn’t any ordinary trailer though; from the looks of it, Square Enix just released the full Opening Cinematic of the Final Fantasy VII Remake!

Watch it here:

We don’t know about you, but we think that the opening cinematic is an absolutely gorgeous and loving recreation of the original. Best part is, it features a re-imagined version of the classic score!

While most of the opening movie is a near shot-for-shot remake of the original, it does contain quite a number of new scenes at the beginning which show off the Midgar. While we’ve seen Midgar in the remake in various trailers already, the opening movie offers an even better glimpse at the iconic city.

Aside from releasing the opening movie for the game, Square Enix also recently shared even more screenshots from the game. Check out new images of Red XIII, Hojo, various summons here:

The Final Fantasy VII Remake releases on April 10, 2020 as a timed-exclusive for the PS4.
