Playstation Blog EU has just released a big gallery of Final Fantasy 7 screenshots showing various mechanics from the upcoming game. Apart from images of its mini-games and mechanics, you’ll see closeup portraits for key characters like Tifa, Biggs and Reno.
The Final Fantasy 7 post on Playstation Blog starts with a look at weapon abilities and how you can upgrade Cloud’s Buster Sword. The interface is completely revamped and comes nowhere close to that of the original game. However, the interface has a strong JRPG vibe, justifying its genre and the satisfaction of its main market.
Moving on we have combat screenshots for Final Fantasy 7, showing how battles look like in both real-time and classic modes. For the latter, we can see an image of how to switch to the classic combat style through the Gameplay Options menu. The choosing option is under the difficulty label which, interestingly, doesn’t come with a hard mode. This could hint the existence of a New Game Plus mode to make Final Fantasy 7 more challenging. We bet fans would want such a feature to be included at a later date.
The gameplay screenshots give us a first look at the summoning feature, with some of the Chocobos’ special moves. Seeing Aerith in the middle of combat is also a sight for sore eyes, given the fanbase the character has obtained over the years.
Last but not least, we can take a look at some of the characters in Final Fantasy 7 in the screenshot gallery. The franchise managed to keep its fanbase longing for the remake in order to see how the characters would look like in the modern-day.
Interestingly, some of the characters look similar to what they did in the 2005 movie Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children.
Particularly Aerith and Reno share the same features although the game will be much more detailed than the movie.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake releases on March 3rd 2020, exclusively on Playstation 4. The upcoming title will create new opportunities for Square Enix, taking the Final Fantasy franchise to a whole new level.
It wouldn’t be surprising if more iconic classics got the remake treatment after the release of FF7. Rest assured, its success is set in stone.
