The announcement trailer of Final Fantasy VII‘s remake showed a slightly darker and more realistic world compared to the 1997 game. And with an aesthetic like that it’s almost impossible to imagine how some of the crazier parts of the original game would look.
Take Cloud’s cross-dressing scene for example and compare it to the shot above from the trailer. But that’s just one example everybody’s talking about. Final Fantasy VII is full of crazy and funny moments like that and one of the most exciting things with this remake will be to see how Square Enix would handle them.
(Watch out for spoilers below.)
The entire part of Don Corneo’s mansion would be a funny thing to see with updated graphics.
Or this part at the Honey Bee Inn.
But it’s not just about Cloud having an unusual day. There’s a part where Red XIII has to sneak up on a cargo ship disguised as a human.
Certain Shinra members had some funny scenes too. Just think about Hojo enjoying the sun at Costa del Sol or Palmer’s meeting with a truck.
Then there’s the “slap off” between Tifa and Scarlet on the Sister Ray.
The possibility of fighting as frogs (or toads) against other frogs.
The “Evil Dragon King” play with Cloud and Aeris.
The marching soldiers at Junon and the related mini-game.
And what are the things that would probably look the coolest? Maybe the “Knights of the Round” summon animation.
Or Sephiroth’s “footprints”.
And it’s really just the tip of the iceberg. Feel free to put all the other similar moments in the comments.
