The original version of Final Fantasy 7 has received a fan-made mod that adds some hilariously corny voice acting to the classic JRPG. If you’ve ever wanted to experience the original classic adventure with full voice-acting, this is your chance to do so.

Currently, Square Enid’s own Final Fantasy 7 Remake only covers the initial Midgar story. As the only way to officially experience the whole game with voice acting, fans are going to have to wait years to see important scenes voices by professional VAs. However, fans can now experience the PS1 original with era-appropriate corny voice acting.

PC players will probably have a blast replaying this JRPG now that it has a voice-acting mod. Honestly, we wouldn’t mind it if major gaming companies added voice acting when they re-release some of their older titles. Imagine Final Fantasy 9 with voice acting!

Tsunamods showed off their Final Fantasy 7 voice-acting mod on YouTube. In the description, the modding team details some of the changes made to make certain parts feel fresher. It did result in a shocking bit of swearing but the original game was filled with it anyway.

According to the modding team, they translated the original Japanese script of the game properly. This is an improved version of what original PlayStation owners got at the time. Despite being a flawed translation, fans are still pretty nostalgic over the original game.

Fans will remember that scene in the original game where Cloud, Tifa, and Barret have to press a button at the same time. If the player messes this up too much, Tifa will start swearing about it, which wasn’t in the original game. Apparently, this shocked some fans, which is why Tsunamods had to address it.
