Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo Intro Leaks Online

The beginning of a demo for Final Fantasy VII Remake seems to have leaked on YouTube.

It appears that the New Years’ festivities started early today for one lucky fan. An unlisted video surfaced on the Youtube channel belonging to the user Lystraza and showcased what appears to be a direct capture of the intro to a Final Fantasy VII Remake demo.

The video begins at the demo start screen and runs through the remake reinterpretation of the classic titles intro cinematic. Square Enix treats us to a small taste of how they have expertly paired music and visual splendor to create a stunning experience that looks to be worth the wait. Examples of this are especially apparent with the serene and hopeful melody that plays as Aerith sells her flowers, effortlessly flowing into the swelling crescendo as the train pulls into the station and AVALANCHE, gets to work. The emotional impact lands, and it hits hard.

As of this writing, this appears to be the only video that the user has shared. You can count on DualShockers though, as we will be keeping an eye out for any additional videos that may be posted. This bite-sized snippet will leave fans even more rabid for the demo to just release. When paired with the previous PSN listing leak, it lends itself strongly to the idea that we may be on the cusp of the demo’s release. I’m hoping for a New Year’s Day surprise? We will have to wait and see, but I imagine we won’t be left waiting long before this demo is in the hands of the masses.

The long wait is almost over as Final Fantasy VII Remake will release for PS4 in just a few short months, on March 3, as a PlayStation 4 exclusive for one year.
