Square Enix Has Released the Opening Movie for Final FANTASY VII REMAKE, and It's a Thing of Beauty

After years of waiting, Final Fantasy VII: Remake is releasing in two months, allowing all fans of the original, and those who have never had the opportunity to experience the cult classic, to embark on a mesmerising journey with Cloud Strife and his friends.

While Final Fantasy VII: Remake won't hit stores until April 10, Square Enix has just unveiled the official "Opening Movie" for the highly anticipated jRPG, showcasing the game's world living in the shadow of the Shinra Electric Power Company. As Cloud, the player will team-up with other rebellious heroes (and one wolf-like beast) to fight for the future of Midgar, the most technologically advanced city on the planet.

There's no denying that said cinematic will make Final Fantasy enthusiasts emotional, as the 1997 title is remembered as one of the most touching and smartest video games the genre has ever produced for a good reason.

As a reminder, the timed PlayStation 4 exclusive won't tell the entire storyline of the classic, as it's planned as the "first, standalone game in the Final Fantasy VII: Remake project" with a deepened story that "covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar." 

Without further ado, marvel at the beauty of Final Fantasy VII: Remake's "Opening Movie" down below:

The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him. The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.

Final Fantasy VII: Remake is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.
