Final Fantasy VII Remake is an action RPG from Square Enix that retells the story of the original 1997 game in high definition. Like the title implies, it is not merely a port but a ground-up remake with new environments, character models, soundtrack, and modernized gameplay mechanics.
The story of Final Fantasy 7 follows Cloud Strife, a former soldier of the shadowy Shinra corporation which is utilizing the planet’s very life force as an energy source. After being hired by a resistance group Avalanche, he fights alongside his new comrades to save the planet.
