Final Fantasy 7 Remake Releases 5-Minute Opening Cinematic

by IGN
Square Enix has released the opening cinematic of Final Fantasy VII Remake way ahead of its April 10 release date.

The five-minute movie blends some very familiar elements with plenty of brand new ones. It opens with a highly detailed look at the eclectic city of Midgar, taking the viewer on a journey through the bustling streets that are filled with construction workers and kids speeding around on bicycles.The establishing shots are supported by newly orchestrated, breath-taking music, which swells to a peak as Aerith gazes up towards the starlit night sky. The camera pans out to reveal more breathtaking views of the vibrant metropolis before Cloud Strife makes his highly-anticipated entrance atop a high-speed train.

This clip comes shortly after Square Enix released a batch of new screenshots from the highly-anticipated game, showcasing Tifa’s moves in battle, as well as a look at the game’s side quests, and, most importantly, some adorable and oddly proportioned summons.The Final Fantasy VII Remake will invite players to jump into a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat, as they enter a world where the Shinra Electric Power Company – a shadowy corporation – controls the planet’s very life force.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is now due to launch on April 10, 2020 for PS4 after its delay last month.For more on Final Fantasy 7 Remake, read about how its PS4 exclusivity was shifted to April 10, 2021, discover all of the major reveals and surprises in the latest trailer, and take a look at our complete Final Fantasy 7 Remake preorder guide.
