Final Fantasy VII Remake's Opening Cinematic Is Gorgeous And Faithful
Welcome to Midgar, again.
The opening to Final Fantasy VII is memorable, giving you a glimpse of the Midgar skyline and the oppressiveness of Shinra's establishments over the city. It's also the first time you see protagonist Cloud, as he pulls off some daring maneuvers to board a moving train and kick-off the Avalanche mission at the start of the game. The remake is incredibly faithful to the original, as you can see for yourself below.
