The announcement trailer of Final Fantasy VII’s remake showed a slightly darker and more realistic world compared to the 1997 game. And with an aesthetic like that it’s almost impossible to imagine how some of the crazier parts of the original game would look.

Take Cloud’s cross-dressing scene for example and compare it to the shot above from the trailer. But that’s just one example everybody’s talking about. Final Fantasy VII is full of crazy and funny moments like that and one of the most exciting things with this remake will be to see how Square Enix would handle them.

The entire part of Don Corneo’s mansion would be a funny thing to see with updated graphics.

Certain Shinra members had some funny scenes too. Just think about Hojo enjoying the sun at Costa del Sol or Palmer’s meeting with a truck.

And what are the things that’d probably look the coolest? Maybe the “Knights of the Round” summon animation.

Or Sephiroth’s “footprints”.

DISCUSSION

I’ve got to admit, as much as I like to criticize the narrative structure of the game, I did enjoy some of the quirky bits more than might be readily apparent.

I’ll almost certainly buy the remake, whatever my “I’m too cool for this” commentary might imply—and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s done with a number of the iconic sequences from VII.

...most particularly, though, I want to see what they do with the Moogle game in the arcade.
