Their names were Cloud, Tifa and Barret (although everyone renamed him Mr. T). They were freedom fighters locked in epic battle against Jenova. They were also the characters who broke the Sony Playstation out of the mold and expanded the concept of video gaming. A decade after its release, Final Fantasy VII is still well loved as a video game. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with Square-Enix has revisited the world of Midgar to bring the animated film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children to America.
Advent Children continues the game’s storyline in this CG-animated film, featuring non-stop action and exciting visual effects. Two years have passed since the ruins of Midgar stand as a testament to the sacrifices made in order to bring peace. However, the world will soon face a new menace. A mysterious illness is spreading fast. Old enemies are astir. And Cloud, who walked away from the life of a hero to live in solitude, must step forward yet again…
The new DVD will come as a two-disc special edition in April and will contain a story digest, deleted scenes, a making of featurette, footage form the Venice Film Festival and a sneak peek at the upcoming projects rekinding the world of Final Fantasy VII.
Store up your Gil. The two disc set arrives on April 25th with a suggested retail price of $26.96. Not surprisingly, Playstation devotees who played the game so long ago will also be able to purchase the film on UMD for their PSPs.
