How has Last Fantasy 7 Remake modified in 5 years?
We’re arising on the fourth anniversary of Last Fantasy 7 Remake’s announcement at E3, and this week Sony peeked again in on the sport at Thursday’s State of Play livestream occasion. YouTuber Cycu1 discovered that a adequate foundation to revisit what was proven in 2015 and, in a side-by-side means, see how issues have come alongside since then.
The quick reply is, sure, the newest model is certainly higher, visually. That goes for the whole lot from Cloud’s arms to his hairdo, making him look lots brawnier and worthy of swinging across the huge Buster Sword.
Commenters on the video discover that there have been some downgrades as properly, which speaks to an general optimization effort. Within the fight examples proven, the later mannequin positively feels extra like a present console era sport, with the older one not exhibiting that age properly. Maybe that is due to crisper lighting, smoother animations (or simply, after all, higher framerate).
In fact, followers are lamenting that these sorts of incremental refinements and comparisons set the entire thing on a timeline for launch in … 2030 or one thing? Sony is skipping E3, though it should have some bulletins to go along with the present, and the State of Play teaser recommended extra was coming in June.
