New Final Fantasy VII Remake Screenshots Show Off Weapon Upgrades, Summons, And More
With less than four months away from the impending release of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix is continuing to build hype for the title by releasing a steady stream of video clips and screenshots. The developer recently released a rather large new batch of the latter, showing off a wide variety of aspects of the game from Materia to the newly revealed Chocobo summon.
The folks over at Sony released a new blog post featuring loads of newly released screenshots of the Final Fantasy VII Remake courtesy of Square Enix. Per Sony, Square Enix provided some caption details along with many of the new screenshots, some of which can be seen below.
- Each weapon has its own unique weapon abilities that increase in proficiency the more they are used. When an ability’s proficiency level reaches the maximum, that ability is then learned by the wielder and can be used when wielding any weapon.
- Here we see Cloud’s Buster Sword upgrade screen. The different options allow you to improve the wielder’s status or increase the number of Materia slots available.
- Classic Mode can be activated by selecting “CLASSIC” from the difficulty menu. In Classic Mode, party members will act automatically, with the ATB gauge filling up as they do so. In this mode, the player only needs to select which abilities, magic, and items they will use their ATB charges for. This brings the feel of the gameplay closer to the menu-based battles from the original FFVII but with the amazing immersive graphics of the remake.
- Chocobo & Moogle use their special move “Stampede” to run down the enemy with a herd of chocobos. While equipping Summon Materia, you will be able to summon a powerful ally once the special summon gauge fills up. Summons will fight alongside you automatically on the battlefield, but you can also use your own ATB charges to have them perform special abilities. Just before they leave the fight, your ally will unleash a powerful special move!
The rest of the new screenshots can be seen right here. Final Fantasy VII Remake releases exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
