20 things you probably didn’t know about Final Fantasy VII

By Matt Ayres

The dreams of Final Fantasy fans around the world came true at E3 2015, when it was announced that Final Fantasy VII would be remade for current-gen consoles. The pixellated world of the 1997 PlayStation game is being updated for modern audiences, using spectacular graphics and real voice acting to enhance the series’ most beloved title.

Yet for many, the unaltered original will always be the best. For all its blocky visuals, text-based dialogue and occasionally glitchy gameplay, FFVII was a masterpiece in nineties game design that pushed the boundaries of what a video game could do across three phenomenal discs.

Whether you’re a hardcore fan or a newcomer to the series, these lesser-known Final Fantasy VII tidbits will have you hankering for a retro RPG sesh.
