Final Fantasy 7 Remake Mod

If you've ever been playing Final Fantasy VII Remake and felt yourself missing the original character models, then we have the mod for you!

At the start of September, a user named FantasyRaiderr uploaded their latest creation to NexusMods, allowing players to transform the remake's high-quality character models back to their original 1997 counterparts simply by dropping the file into a mod manager.

Right now, it only seems to work for characters in your party like Cloud, Tifa, Yuffie, Aerith, and Barrett - so, unfortunately, no Sephiroth or Reno.

There are also predictably some instances of clipping inside cutscenes due to the box-like bodies, as well as certain cinematics not showing the replacement models due to being video files.

However, we're betting that if you are installing this mod, you're probably doing it for the novelty of seeing these blocky models rendered inside the semi-realistic setting, and can handle some of the eccentricities that go along with it. If you want to download the mod, you can do so from NexusMods.
