We recently received leaks pointing to a demo for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake. Now, an opening cinematic for the game's demo has been leaked.

An opening for the supposed Final Fantasy VII Remake demo leaked onto YouTube thanks to a user named Lystrasza. The cinematic is a very faithful recreation of the intro of the original game. It begins with Aeris Gainsborough viewing lifestream energy in the streets of Midgar, and ends with Cloud Strife and the rest of AVALANCHE arriving at Reactor 1 on board a train. Though a few changes were made, those who played the original version of Final Fantasy VII will recognize the events of the original opening immediately.

The leaked video begins with a menu screen that allows the player to choose a difficulty. The menu screen also plays the series' iconic "Prelude" written by Nobuo Uematsu. The video cuts off right after the cinematic ends and the player takes over. You can check out the video below:

Final Fantasy VII Remake will be the first part of an episodic series. This first part will only cover the Midgar portion of the original game, though it will be expanded to create a full game with new content, which includes new bosses. It has been announced that the next episode of the remake series is in development, though we do not know how much of the original game the second episode will cover. It is also unknown how many episodes will be made altogether, and how much new content we will be receiving. It is also unknown how much of the original game will be included in the remake.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on March 3rd, 2020 for the PlayStation 4. The game will be exclusive to the system for a year, as the title will release on other platforms in 2021. Square Enix has not made any confirmation of a Final Fantasy VII Remake demo at this time.
