ABOUT FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE
The planet’s very life force is drained as Mako energy by the shadowy Shinra Electric Power Company. In the city of Midgar, a flower merchant gazes upward as a train pulls into a station. FF7 Remake is a reimagining of the iconic original with unforgettable characters, a mind-blowing story, and epic battles. The story of this first, standalone game in the FF7 Remake project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FF7.
