Final Fantasy VII. No matter what Square has done since, I still come back to this. Great story, great world building, great visuals. It’s continued on for over 20 years in multiple game formats and even a sequel in the form of a movie. Now they are set to return to the original game and REMAKE it for modern systems. I can’t think of anything I’d want more in a console game. Square Enix blew the roof off E3 back in 2016 with a demo of the new game, but things have gone mostly quiet since. That hasn’t stopped the merchandising arm of the company though, because they’ve released Play Arts Kai versions of Cloud and Barret to match their new/old look in the demo.
These guys originally dropped last year, but they’ve slowly been filling out US retailer’s inventory. Cloud is even getting a new color version to closer match the look of the orignal game’s blue uniform. I finally got a hold of my copies, and wanted to share a gallery showing them off.
