Final Fantasy 7 Remake Launch Inspires Tributes From The Doom Slayer, Arby's

An awesome piece of fan art and some amazing cardboard papercraft are two of the ways companies are tipping a hat to FF7.


Final Fantasy 7 Remake has finally launched, following a years-long wait that was preceded by still more years of rumors and fan wishes. Now that the day has arrived, other companies are giving congrats and well-wishes to the new RPG from Square Enix via social media.

One of the coolest tributes has to be from the official Doom account, which shared a piece of crossover art modeled after the iconic image of Cloud standing in front of Shinra headquarters. Not to be outdone, the restaurant chain Arby's made Cloud's motorcycle and buster sword out of its fast food boxes.
