Watch The Full Final Fantasy 7 Remake Opening Cutscene

Feb 21, 2018
Everyone knows how Final Fantasy 7's one of the most iconic cutscenes in all of gaming. A lot of space, Aerith's face, Loveless Square, in the air, city shot, train wheels hot, soldiers' fear, now Cloud's here.

So you might think there are no real surprises in the video Square published on Valentine's Day, which is the entire opening cutscene from Final Fantasy 7 Remake....especially since we already saw it in the demo footage that leaked out last month. That's where you're wrong...turns out the demo purposely cut a scene before Aerith even appeared.

See it in the press release below.

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 14, 2020) – SQUARE ENIX® today revealed the opening cinematic movie for one of the year’s most highly anticipated games, FINAL FANTASY® VII REMAKE. The footage showcases the gorgeous visuals of the eclectic city of Midgar, backed by newly orchestrated, breath-taking music. In FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, players will be drawn into a world where Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation, controls the planet’s very life force. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche.

Additionally, fans will get to experience the breath-taking music from FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE live during the recently announced Orchestra World Tour starting in Los Angeles this June.

It's like an opening of a movie. Imagine how much games improved throughout the years and this is just an amazing virtual feast in the eyes. The remake's intro reminds me of the original but only better.

I feel like Final Fantasy 7 Remake is going to break records and that will partially be attributed to this very opening movie.
The people that didn't get to play the OG Final Fantasy 7 are the lucky ones here because they get to have a totally different experience. Also, I agree with you when you say that FFVII Remake is going to break records.

Those are new potential customers. Especially the people didn't play the original one are going to go crazy when FFVII Remake drops. I have a friend who has pre-ordered it on Amazon @ $59.99
