Final Fantasy VII’s 23rd Anniversary has been and gone and Square have given fans a real treat by releasing a new teaser trailer which shows a lot of new cinematics and gameplay footage. The trailer features a new theme song “Hollow” by Uematsu while giving us a look at new characters. The trailer can be seen below.

The trailer shows a cast of new and returning characters such as the Shinra executives Reeve, Scarlet, Palmer and Hojo and giving us a more in-depth look at the Honey Bee Inn which has had a huge transformation clearly showing it to be a huge part of the crossdressing scene. We see more of a more feminine Cloud as well as the sleazy Don Corneo. We also capture the young Cloud and Tifa in Nibelheim. The biggest reveal however was we finally got to see Red XIII who up to this point remained a mystery and it was a question of if and when he would appear. There are plenty more new and familiar scenes in the trailer with more gameplay being shown. With just over 2 months before its release, the Final Fantasy VII remake is looking more fleshed out and I and everyone else at Game Hype are beyond excited for it.
