Watch Final Fantasy VII Remake with the original’s fixed camera

With the Universal Unreal Unlocker mod, it’s possible to convert the Final Fantasy VII Remake’s shoulder-mounted camera to the original’s fixed perspective. YouTuber Final FanTV did just that, comparing the two games’ train station and Mako reactor sequences in a video.

There are similarities between the locations in the two games, despite the obvious change in color palette and detailing, and the fact that in the remake Barrett jogs behind Cloud rather than disappearing into him as they party It is obvious. Even if the pipes are replaced by more sensible industrial walkways, and the narrow walkways enlarged so that battles can be fought over them, the layout is similar enough for that part of the brain to be happy to see old things being remodeled.
