You can now play Final Fantasy 7 with 3D character models closer to Tetsuya Nomura’s concept art

NiNoStyle has been working on an interesting project for the original version of Final Fantasy 7. This mod aims to balance stylized Final Fantasy VII characters with 3D models in a style based on Tetsuya Nomura’s concept art.

On December 11th, the modder released a new version of this 3D Model pack. Naturally, this latest version aims to enhance your Final Fantasy VII playing experience, by improving some of the 3D models.

Do note that this mod does not aim to change the game’s aesthetics like the Advent Children pack. While the models are not as “blocky” as before, they retain their anime-like look. They are also not as detailed as the Advent Children models, something that will definitely please all FF7 purists fans out there.

In order to install this pack, you’ll need to install and run the manager from  7th Heaven Mod Manager page. Once you’ve done that, you can download the 7th Heaven compatible versions from here.

Lastly, you can find a video below showcasing these new 3D models in action. Therefore, be sure to watch it as it will give you an idea of the mod’s visual improvements and enhancements.
