If you couldn't figure it out from the thumbnail picture, this article is about Final Fantasy VII, and we're happy for all you PS5 owners because, well, you are the only ones getting it. Final Fantasy VII was originally released in 1997, so unless you were born in the 80's or 90's you might not know why we're all so excited. We're excited because Final Fantasy VII is widely regarded as one of the best RPG's ever made, and Square Enix is releasing a remake on April 10th, 2021. If you never had a chance to play it, and you own a Playstation, now you can see what all the hype is about.
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.
