Final Fantasy 7 Fan Remakes The Remake In Dreams

We've seen some pretty outstanding Dreams creations already, but this one might top them all. It's a remake of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a game that hasn't even come out yet. And wow, is it impressive.


The folks over at Game Rant brought this one to our attention, sharing the news that a Dreams creator had remade the FF7 Remake gameplay demo we saw at E3. And for the most part, this fan-made demo captures the essence of its source material. The environment is beautifully crafted. There's a full-blown user interface, complete with abilities, spells and attacks. Players can switch freely between characters in the party. And that soundtrack sounds like it was ripped directly from... wait. It probably was.

The one instantly noticeable change comes in how the characters look. They're definitely a bit more cartoony in this demo than in the real one, and look like they might be more at home in the Pocket Edition of Final Fantasy 15 than in the realistic Midgar being built by Square Enix. But it's unclear whether that's an artistic choice or a limitation of Dreams. There certainly is a lot happening on screen in the Dreams demo; perhaps both the game and the hardware can't handle more detailed characters.


According to Twitter user @figburn, the level is called "FFVII Dreamake," and was uploaded by a Dreams creator named "sosetsuken5360." Credit where credit is due. If you'd like to try out the remake of the remake, you should be able to search for and download it inside the Dreams early access build.

And while you're at it, try searching for the Metal Gear Solid remake. That one's apparently pretty good, too. Oh, and take a peek at this remade Spider-Man intro. People are doing some really cool things inside Dreams, so we can only imagine what'll start coming out when the game officially launches.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake will get a PlayStation 4 release on March 3, 2020. Dreams is available in early access on PlayStation 4 now.
