Final Fantasy 7 is a game that definitely made a big impact when it first came out, and it hasn’t gone away. Final Fantasy characters have shown up in films like Advent Children and other games such as the Kingdom Hearts series. On top of all that, there was the recent announcement that Final Fantasy 7 is getting a remake with the gorgeous new graphics that technology is capable of today. This particular title of the Final Fantasy series will probably never go away.
I’ve seen some great crossovers celebrating the series and the characters. Recently I stumbled on one that definitely combines two things I like. Artist Zak, AKA ZedEdge on Deviantart, has illustrated the Final Fantasy 7 characters in the Big Hero 6 style. I love it. The little changes to make them fit into that world are perfect.
Raise your hand if you would happily watch the Final Fantasy characters run around in a movie or show in this style! *Raises hand* Zac has done a great job keeping the specific character elements that are signature for each one, but he reinterprets them in a great new way. These looks are great and are definitely ready for any cosplay fans to tackle.
Zak has some done other really great crossover art, or “remixes” as he calls them, such as mixing the Legend of Korra with Mass Effect, Sailor Moon with Mad Max: Fury Road, Adventure Time with Kingdom Hearts and even more. Make sure to check out his gallery for all the awesome art.
