Rumors of a Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo have reached fever pitch. A PlayStation Store listing for the demo has leaked online, and a full intro to the demo up on YouTube.
Below, you can see the apparent intro to the demo, which cuts seamlessly from Cloud hopping off the train for the introductory bombing mission, to actual gameplay. This certainly looks like the very start of Final Fantasy 7.
Additionally, it looks as though the demo will weigh in at approximately 23GB on release, a pretty hefty download size. The screenshot below comes from Reddit, via another YouTube video of the demo.
Finally, and perhaps most convincingly, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo has actually been listed on the PSN Store. The listing appeared just a few days ago on Gamstat.tracker, which is the same listing that outed the existence of the Resident Evil 3 remake last November, before it was announced by Capcom.
All signs certainly point towards a demo for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake releasing before the final product launches on March 7. This vertical slice could give nostalgic fans a chance to see what Square Enix's new take on the combat feels like in action. We've contacted Square Enix for comment on the demo.
