Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Cloud, Aerith, and Tifa are shooting up zombies in this unique Resident Evil 2 Remake crossover by Yic17 Studio.

The creative YouTube channel has replaced the Resident Evil 2 characters, Leon, Claire and Ada, with the ex-Soldier, Ancient and Avalanche member for some trigger-happy zombie killing.

The impressive crossover presents a very different setting to the Final Fantasy characters, and also provides fan service with some romantic scenes.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake / Resident Evil 2 Remake Crossover Film

Yic17 Studio has provided a full, 140-min feature replacing the three main characters of Resident Evil 2 with Cloud, Aerith and Tifa.

The film is made up of all of the game’s cutscenes that feature individual character mods, made by Wiwilz, Darkness Valtier and Marcos RC, to implement the Final Fantasy characters within the Raccoon City narrative.

The film was captured on the studio’s PC with a 4K 60FPS resolution, where the game’s HUD has been removed to give the feature a more authentic, cinematic look.

The Cloud, Aerith and Tifa mods were privately commissioned by the studio and therefore have no download link, but you can still watch Cloud roam around in an R.P.D. uniform at your leisure.

It’s certainly an entertaining watch when Aerith abandons her magic for a handgun, and there’s even a romantic scene between Cloud and Tifa which should fulfill some fans’ desires.

Meet Yic17 Studio

The American studio has been creating “cinematic and creative” gaming content since 2006, particularly within the JRPG genre.

Yic17 Studio has predominantly produced content relating to Fire Emblem, the Persona franchise and Final Fantasy, with a goal to include more titles from this genre in the future.

The studio has also put the main characters from Final Fantasy 15 in Resident Evil 3, and there’s even a 12-minute video of Noctis dressed as John Wick.

The studio has a healthy following of over 40,000 subscribers on YouTube, building exciting, original content for the JRPG community, and it seems like the team has more compelling projects in the pipeline.
