    Default The FFVII Remake Demo has leaked

    The FFVII Remake Demo was added onto PSN (though not publicly available without some work). Some entrepreneurial people managed to download it and have datamined a lot of interesting things from it.

    Yeah, from what I've heard, it's similar to when they datamined the demo for Dissidia Duodecim. Apparently the demo had info on large chunk of the finished game.

    There are several videos on Youtube streaming the leaked demo. I took a quick look mostly just to see the opening video which was very impressive. I also really like the updated music from what I've heard so far. For the battles, you kind of need to play it to judge so I can't wait until the demo is released officially.

    Just use spoiler tags to be on the safe side.

    I'd like to say a big "smurf you" to all those involved in datamining this thing. I had no expectations for a demo at all, and now I know it exists I'm all at once constantly checking reddit etc to see if it's been released, trying to avoid spoilers, caving and looking at spoilers, and so on and so forth. The subreddit has turned from fun chat and speculation to thread after thread of "IS THE DEMO COMING TODAY?" "SOME RANDOM DUDE ON TWITTER SAYS HE HAS THE DEMO!!"

    I don't give much of a damn about spoiling Square's marketing plan. I'm sure they're planning to drop it at the perfect moment for maximum hype and pre-order revenue, which is not something I will pity them for missing out on. But way to spoil everyone else's fun.

    The characters (SPOILER) hojo! red! look great. Even (SPOILER) corneo . Hopefully, the (SPOILER) cross-dressing scenes are handled tastefully, its not 1997 anymore..

    I've avoided all spoilers so far apart from the opening cinematic of the game. I've not watched any gameplay from the demo or seen any of the leaked images / dialogue. Have I wanted to have a peek? OF COURSE I smurfING HAVE. But I'm going to be a good boy and wait until the demo, that's if we even get it anymore.

    I can get behind this. I've avoided spoilers, but I have been checking my gaming news feeds for an announcement. This is one of those moments where I wish SE would act more like a Western publisher, because if this kind of trout had happened to Ubisoft or EA, they would have just released the demo the next day since the cat is out of the bag.

    I'm not really concerned with spoilers as much as I want to check out the gameplay firsthand and see if my concerns are valid or if this going to be like Xenoblade and actually work out well once you play it firsthand.
