Epic Final Fantasy IV remake trailer
While mainly made of cutscenes, the new trailer for Final Fantasy IV remake does contain gameplay footages with fantastic summoning animations. It just looks gorgeous and the visual is already looking a hundred times better than Final Fantasy III remake (same developer). It also includes a partial scene of Palom and Porom decision to do something dramatic, but nothing spoilerific here (go buy the game when it comes out to find out).
The character design of Cecil (in both Paladin and Dark Knight form), Kain, Rosa, Edge and Rydia just look terrific. The super deform characters is once again designed by Yoshitaka Amano which explains the difference from the Akihiko Yoshida's Final Fantasy III character redesign. Which isn't a problem since the style suits the more serious tone of the game.
Music is Theme of Love sung by Ida Megumi and written and rearranged by veteran Final Fantasy composer Nobou Uematsu. The remake is due out in Japan in two weeks.
