Barret gets a Yoshitaka Amano-styled overhaul in this Final Fantasy 7 Remake mod

A mod for Final Fantasy 7 Remake gives Barret’s look a bit of a style change to make him more resemble Yoshitaka Amano’s art of him.

We’ve all seen the beautiful art across various Final Fantasies from Amano, which started all the way back with the first game. The cover art from back in the days when he was still doing it didn’t much resemble the art of the game itself, but there was nothing quite like it on store shelves at the time.
