The appearance of the famous Cloud character in the HD remake of Final Fantasy 7 has changed since its announcement in 2015.

While the Mori Art Museum in the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower of the Roppongi Hills Complex in Tokyo City hosts the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Exhibition since last January, Tetsuya Nomura, director of Final Fantasy 7 and character designer characters of the original title, and Naoki Hamaguchi, the manager of the development of the HD remake of Final Fantasy 7, have recently visited the latter to gather the opinion of some fans of the license of Square Enix. They have also organized a private presentation with some people to unveil completely new images of Final Fantasy 7 Remake . The photos were obviously forbidden, even if some unpublished details still “leaked”.


On this occasion, Naoki Hamaguchi showed illustrations of Cloud with a new design that has been fully validated by Tetsuya Nomura after several attempts. The latter even considers this new look as “the closest to the original design of Cloud obtained until now”. He goes even further by saying, ” Even though Cloud looks like this, it’s a corny. I’m sure those who played the original game understand what I mean when I say he’s a bit of a nerdy character . ” In addition to Cloud, Naoki Hamaguchi also unveiled images of other members of the Avalanche group such as Biggs who is advertised as “super handsome”, Wedge as “refreshing and chubby” and Jessie as “cute”.
