How to Use Summons in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

You can bring forth powerful creatures to help you in the midst of a battle with the use of magic and spells. These are known a Summons in FF7 Remake and they range from being kind of proficient with magic to being full-on gods.

You can use Summons after you’ve obtained some summon materia that you can put on equipment slots.

When they’re equipped, you will spot a summon gauge that will start filling up on the right side of your screen as you play. You can bring forth the Summon once the gauge is full.

Summon Materia can be obtained while playing through the story and so far as we know; you can only equip one type per battle. Summons will stay active and start automatically attacking foes for a limited duration in which they cannot be taken out by enemies.

Summon abilities use up ATB charges. The more powerful the ability, the more ATB charges will get used up. After the Summon’s gauge is empty, it will do one final attack before disappearing.
