Square Enix is making Final Fantasy VII Remake as if it were a main numbered game

CJ got the early take on Final Fantasy VII Remake at E3 this year, and after having played through the same section he did, I can agree with most of his observations. But this is one of those big deals so we needed to dig deeper than just the floor demo. I went to my appointment with Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase armed with my shovel.
Where the floor demo dropped players into the final area of the bombing run mission, up against a few small enemies to prepare players for the Scorpion Sentinel boss fight, the behind-closed-doors demo started from the beginning. That's right, train pulling into the station, Cloud unnecessarily flipping onto the platform, and tears coming to the edges of my eyes. It's so beautiful.
