Final Fantasy VII Remake's New Trailer: Reno, Rude, Aerith's Dress, and Toads
Longtime Final Fantasy fans and those who played the other titles in the FFVII line, like Crisis Core, will immediately notice that Rude, and especially Reno, are getting much more time in the spotlight than they ever had in the original Final Fantasy VII.
Seeing as both played crucial roles in the spinoff titles, it seems Square Enix will be fleshing out FFVII Remake's story by building on events from those titles, which also likely means we can expect a much-expanded conflict between Avalanche and Shinra, too.
It looks like Square Enix also teased some expanded Golden Saucer and final date events, showing off Aerith in a brand-new outfit. Whether that holds true for everyone isn't certain, since Tifa still just gets her black tank-top.
Outside of that, we got a glimpse at some other important antagonists, but also at certain aspects of the battle system. It seems placement on the battefield will affect actions and reactions, with the trailer showing Aerith taking damage after an enemy chucks Cloud back into her.
Despite FFVII's famously darker setting and the remake's further emphasis on that darkness, it will still retain the series' trademark quirk as well. In the middle of a tense battle with bullets flying, Cloud gets hit by a magic blue puff of smoke and turns into a Toad for a while.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is set for a March 3, 2020 release date for PlayStation 4.
