Final Fantasy 7 Remake was a gift to modders, who until now have been responsible for masterpieces like low poly cloud dress, Sephiroth clown makeup, and various naked mods that I let interested readers discover for themselves. Now, a modder known as The Eradicator has really created the pièce de résistance, with a mod that replaces Cloud’s buster sword or ironblade with a 1987 Yamaha SHS-10 shoulder keyboard.
Cloud with keytar is one of those things I didn’t know I wanted until I saw it, but now that I have it it feels so right. Eradicator did a good job modeling the keyboard details, and the digital readout even changes color to match the material you equipped in the sword’s first slot.
The mod comes in three different versions for each of the two swords it can replace, depending on whether you want it to have a simple, unadorned back, a selection of random stickers, or some specifically Final Fantasy 7-themed stickers, including a with the iconic Aerith. quote from the shonky translation of the original English game, “This guy is sick”.
To install this, you’ll need to create a ~mods folder inside your FFVIIRemakeIntergrade/End/Content/Paks directory, and then paste any of the .pak files you choose to download into it.
