Fan Spends Two Years Remaking Final Fantasy 7 in LittleBigPlanet 2

A fan of Final Fantasy VII has spent two years remaking every detail of the game in the platformer and game creator LittleBigPlanet 2.

A gamer and YouTuber has finally finished his recreation of Final Fantasy VII in the popular platformer LittleBigPlanet 2 after two years of hard work.

James Colliver documented his magnum opus on his YouTube channel, which features a playlist of 113 15-minute long videos showing the game's levels (see above for the first video).

As Colliver has noted on a website he's creating for the game, this remake has all of the levels, playable characters, environments, bosses and music of the original game. He's even replicated the battle system, including summons and Limit Breaks.

It's clear from the first few videos that the characters don't exactly move or act the same way as the original. And the LBP modelling means the characters deviate a bit from FF7, although with the updated graphics it isn't necessarily a problematic change. Colliver has blended the character of the original Final Fantasy VII with the platformer's charming style, though it's probably not going to satisfy diehard FF7 fans.

You can access the remake and try it out via Colliver's LBP page.

    well.. i don't mean to act cool or something but do you think you are that good to make that annoying comment of yours? if you are, then God must have been bad shit drunk when he gave you talent but no respect? and lastly... try living in the real world if you are soooo good in video game art & design. Have a nice day disrespecting piece of trash.

    If you can't appreciate the sheer amount of hard work and dedication that went into creating this, then why are you in game design? As an artist yourself, you should, at the very least, respect when others pursue the creation of something they love, whether you approve of the end result or not. If you think that the act of creation is useless unless it spawns something "new", then I think that you're in the wrong industry, and the gaming industry would be better served by you switching into a career that more closely resembles your apparently small-minded attitude.

    what a waist of 2 years ( I'm currently a student in video game art & design) should of spent that time actually making a real game then....

    This is probably the most awesome thing that LBP has brought us.
