Unseen Version of Final Fantasy VII in New Square Promo Video

by July 12, 2012 5 comments

Square-Enix recently updated their Japanese YouTube page with old promotional videos. Among these is a video for Final Fantasy VII, which showcases a version of the game as yet unexplored. The video follows below.

As you may notice, there are a number of differences from both the demo release and final version of the game. Thanks go to forum member koolaidman for the find, and for pointing out some of the following details:

  • 1:30 – No one has eyes aside from Cloud.
  • 2:30 – Unused scene with alternate version of the save point.
  • 3:47 – In this and every other battle, the attacks on Cloud only deal 1HP damage.
  • 3:52 – The attack names are not present.
  • 4:14 – Cloud’s magic animation is off-centre.
  • 5:16 – An early version of “Those Chosen by the Planet”.

There also appears to be major differences in some of the textures used for monsters, as well as differences in battle formations and encounters. Spot something we didn’t? Come join the discussion here, or post your thoughts below.

    The unused scene with the different save point (and the different T.V. presenter) looks like the version shown in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZF4xNrPzhqI

      Indeed. Notice also that the presence of the red-haired couple in the train cabin matches with the fact that they have unused lines there, as seen in Unused Text – Part 1. In the final game the couple leaves the cabin as soon as you enter.

    Noticed that Cid and the folks from Shinra are missing from the Tiny Bronco scene.

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody that really
    knows what they are talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. More and more people have
    to look at this and understand this side of your story.

    It’s surprising you’re not more popular because
    you certainly possess the gift.
