By December 8, 2015

We reported yesterday on the new the new PlayStation experience and it turns out, the company is not done releasing great info. With a yet to be announced released date, and a game so large it had to be split into installments, this according to the folks over at Polygon, the remake of Final Fantasy VII is looking well… AMAZING!!!

Check out the first gameplay trailer that was released at this year’s PlayStation Experience…

The game, although still in development, looks amazing in the Unreal Engine 4. The attention to detail, and the fact that the folks at Square Enix will not sacrifice the gaming experience for a shorter game, is testament to their continued excellence. Director Tetsuya Nomurao elaborated as to why the team couldn’t cut the game down to one entry:

“It’s going to be multi-part because when we considered fully remaking Final Fantasy 7 in PS4 quality, and as we look over much of it, we estimated the volume to be beyond what could be fit in one entry.”

Quality it is! Look at Cloud kick all sorts of tail in the footage – this game has been highly anticipated for years and fans (this one included) cannot wait for a release date.

To tide everyone over out there in the Nation, the folks at PlayStation have released a direct port of Final Fantasy VII to the PlayStation store for $15.99 and with purchase you get a free Final Fantasy VII remake theme (via PlayStation Blog).

And so, for everyone reading this – are you excited for this remake? Do you think it will touch the epic greatness of the original or fall flat on its face? Let me hear some of your comments below!
