Shademp – on the subject of my seemingly boundless optimism wrote: After Ungoliant had sucked the light from the trees Telperion and Laurelin, she found that there was a third tree but whose light was too potent and immortal for her to absorb. Thusly, Ungoliant left Valinor in tears for she could not absorb the light of the tree named X-SOLDIER.

The video was uploaded on May 23 this year, but only now is it being noticed! I wonder if the video was simply kept private up until now, or if those 1037 views the video has really is from May 23 up to now.

Thank you so much for sharing this Lex!

Only slide 7 has the FF7 stuff () which represents 2:58 - 4:29 in the video.


That...instantly-generated-Cloud(?) to the right of the capture guy looks both weird and cool. When I see it I think "original game Cloud" rather than "Compilation Cloud".


I'm going to assume that Midgar with fireworks is a still from Final Fantasy XR. It looks a bit too festive to be from the remake.

Hmm, not sure if real. If so, I prefer the PSX Cloud. I think he looks younger, more ‘dorky’ and ‘awkward’ there. Here he has that generic moody staring into your soul look.

But whatever. I’m not that offended. And I realise there’ll be others who think the opposite of me

PS. Isn’t that just Mobius or theme park Cloud?

Transcribing the text from the seventh slide.

So from left to right, the FF7 pictures are...
1) Cloud in real-time(?) footage, meant to show how close it is to pre-rendered quality(?)
2) Real-time motion capture preview
3) Virtual Reality experience at Square Enix Cafe

I only know of the Final Fantasy XR ride having been at Universal Studios Japan but maybe you could also view it, or something like it, at the Square Enix Cafe too?


EDIT: Some neat facts about this "Densha de Go!" which probably explains why there are so many slides that show train tracks
Densha de Go! (電車でGO! Densha de GO! (Lit: Go By (electric)Train)) is a Japanese train simulation game series originally produced by Taito and more recently by Square Enix (who purchased Taito) and Railfan Holdings Co., Ltd. The game originates from a 1996 arcade version. There are also PC versions released by the Japanese publisher Unbalance. All of the games in the series are available in Japanese only. As for the celebration for the 20th anniversary of the game series, Square Enix released two games, the first one was released for Android and iOS in winter 2016, and the second was released for the arcade in 2017.

Yeah, as suspected. Confirmed as FF XR Ride Cloud from the original article:

https://wccftech.com/final-fantasy-v...ew-design/amp/

"[Update] The images showcasing Cloud’s design, which have been shown during the Visual Works presentation are from the theme park ride at Universal Studios Japan, and not straight from Final Fantasy VII Remake."

The "theme park" virtual reality ride used Advent Children Cloud however. I wonder if they at some point planned to use OG Cloud for Final Fantasy XR and/or if these Cloud assets were drawn from remake material.

While it's safe to assume that lots of motion capturing is being done for the FF7 Remake (as I have no doubt that this game IS in production) I have no way of confirming the context in which the motion capture photo was taken. This makes any possible direct connections to the Remake all the more uncertain.

Nice work Radigar! The picture of Midgar with fireworks can also be seen here.

No sign of OG/Remake Cloud though. I wonder if he was ever used for the VR Express experience.

It is quite frustrating that this VR Express ride was not only limited to Japan but it's difficult to pin down its scope. Since VR Express was in 2016 I wonder if some of the graphics made for this event were reused for Final Fantasy XR (2018).

One twitter comment from a person who saw this Final Fantasy VR Express:
VISUALWORKSのVR体験してきました!
ヤバかったーー!
魔晄炉にハイウィンドに魔晄キャノン!
本当にFF7の世界にいるようでした!
1度は絶対体験した方が良い!
Google Translate wrote: I've been experiencing VR for VISUALWORKS!
I was wondering!
Mako cannon to Highwind in a magic fireworks!
It really seemed to be in the world of FF7!
You had better absolutely experience once!
The only other way for us to get more context on the seventh slide is if the video has any interesting commentary. Hito, do they say anything of interest in the video?


Naturally news sources are reporting this as FFVII Remake production images but as mentioned before it is unknown how much, if at all, the Remake has to do with those first two images. At the top of my head I don't remember if the remake is being made in Unreal Engine 4 but it does sound familiar. EDIT: Oh yeah, I remembered correctly. The FF7 Remake is being developed in UE4.
