Final Fantasy 7 fan recreates remake with classic PS1 camera

Cloud view.

Since the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PC, modders have been hard at work playing around.

Now one fan has recreated the game with the classic fixed camera of the PS1 original.

So far it's just a proof of concept rather than a full mod, but the video creation from Final FanTV shows what the original might look like with the graphics of the remake.

In particular, it shows how remarkably faithful the remake is and includes a side-by-side comparison. With a zoomed out camera, it's clear how the layouts of environments are often near identical.

The creator has also edited the video to recreate battles with a side-on perspective to reflect the original's turn-based gameplay.

The video only runs through the opening bombing mission, so for now we'll have to imagine what the rest of the game might look like in this style.

You can watch the full video below.
