If you've played the original Final Fantasy VII, then you'll know the significance of this main menu screen. In the PlayStation classic, you're greeted with an image of Cloud's iconic buster sword after booting the game up, and Final Fantasy VII Remake does the same. It seems Square Enix understands the power of nostalgia.
Here's (basically) what the original looks like:
Interestingly, the title asks you to configure some camera settings before you get started, so you actually get a chance to take a look at the blade from different angles. It's a neat touch.
Anyway, it's just nice to see such a beloved screen get the respect that it deserves. Did seeing Cloud's sword stir any of your emotions? Try not to lift that thing in the comments section below.
Well so much for me enjoying this on Friday huh!!
Overall they nailed it on the nostalgia feels.
But I do think they missed some excellent opportunities along the way throughout the game where I feel they either deviated a bit too far away from the original, or didn't expand on it enough.
However, having said that, I do feel they more than made up for that with other aspects of extension (or rather, expansion) on parts of the original that weren't explained, such as character leaving the party in the original, and their side of the story playing out, instead of it being left to the players imagination.
Man can’t wait for this game, 4 more days 😃
@Grindagger Yeah, they even have that couple at the Sector 7 train station from the original. And while Wedge doesn't get his ass set on fire after the first reactor, it still happens later. There's a few little things I wish they'd put in, like how in the original you can steal that kid's life saving from a drawer in his room, but it's only like 5 gil. It's more than made up for by lots of other things, of course.
We're so close now!
Been playing it for the past 4 days. Your all in for a treat. The Summons look incredible also.
