Footage of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Gamescom 2019 playable demo has surfaced online.
The footage, which can be watched below, has been taken off-screen, so the quality isn’t the best, but it’s still good enough to understand what is going on. The demo seems to be the same available at the E3 2019 two months back, covering sequences going from Barret joining Cloud inside the reactor until the battle against the Scorpion Sentinel.
The FFVII Remake is shaping up to be an excellent game, and the remake Final Fantasy VII deserves.
The E3 2019 demo was short, but it made one thing clear: Square Enix is not pulling any punches with the FFVII Remake, giving it their all to make the game the remake the original deserved. Everything works extremely well, from exploration to battle, so what remains to be seen is how the Midgar arc has been expanded for this episode. I was very skeptic before trying the demo, but now I am sure the Remake will be among the best Final Fantasy games ever released, and a far cry from Final Fantasy XV, which I did like but always felt it could have been so much more.
Final Fantasy VII Remake releases for PlayStation 4 on March 2020.
