As the long-awaited release of the Final Fantasy VII Remake game draws nearer, Square Enix has finally dropped its opening movie scene online! Those who have played the original will certainly find the video nostalgic, as it recreates the original game’s opening with a more modern look.

And here’s the Japanese version:

As previously revealed, players can switch from the game’s default battle mode and into the “Classic Mode”, which allows players to fight battles in the original’s turn-based style. However, players can still fill their ATB (active-time battle) gauge, much like the default battle mode. Oh, and Cross-dressing Cloud is also making a comeback!

The game itself will be released in several parts, with the first one only covering the Midgar storyline. The one getting its release in 10th April for the PlayStation 4 will only be the first part.
