Final Fantasy 7 Remake is most certainly one of the hottest game releases this side of 2020 and its impending launch has Final Fantasy fans chomping at the bit in anticipation. Thankfully, we have some amazing artists roaming the streets of Reddit, ready to share some of their amazing art-work in the meanwhile. Something you may not expect though is to see your favorite Final Fantasy 7 Remake gang recast into characters from a show on Cartoon Network.

Reddit contributor and animator Junaid Chundrigar the Netherlands transformed Aerith, Cloud, Barrett, Tifa and Red XIII into what looks to be characters you would find on much-loved shows like Dexter’s Laboratory, Power Puff Girls or my personal favorite, Ren and Stimpy. It’s certainly interesting to see the beloved Final Fantasy bunch looking drastically different but even so, there’s no mistaking who they are. I think my favorites are Aerith holding the flower to the sky and Red XIII with his tail on fire. It’s plain to see that Junaid has a lot of love for these characters and it’s also refreshing, if not a little strange to see them morphed into some of our treasured Cartoon Network programs.

If Junaid’s work looks at all familiar to you then you may have seen his previous animations on Bad Days, an animated series created by Junaid Chundrigar and Davor Bujakovic which features different fictional heroes and villains. Even though there are very little dialogue words throughout the series, Junaid’s animation and funny moments spoke volumes and even appealed to the late great Marvel writer Stan Lee. You can also check out Junaid’s Instagram page where he showcases many of his wonderful and creative drawings.

Missed out on the special 1st Class Soldier Edition of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake? Well, it just so happens that Square Enix has relisted the figure on its store again for the hefty price of $329.99 but it really does look pretty awesome. For those who were hoping that they could get their hands on a digital copy of Final Fantasy 7 Remake due to physical copies releasing early, then I’m afraid disappointment is on the horizon.

Over on its website, Square Enix explained:

While we understand the frustration of seeing the game for sale in some locations, the bulk of our shipments to retailers around the globe are still scheduled to arrive in stores for our April 10 street date. Also, changing the digital release date at this point-in-time could lead to logistical issues that could disrupt the digital launch for everyone. Therefore, we will be adhering to an April 10 digital release date.
