Final Fantasy VII Remake is just under two months away, but we thought you might want to see just a little more before you get your hands on it for real. We have some brand new screenshots from the game to show you – take a look:

Red XIII


GameTitle on PS4

What is Red XIII? As he himself says: “I am that which you see before you. Nothing more.”

He may look like a beast, with his supple body, red fur, sharp fangs and tail of flames, but Red XIII is as eloquent as any human.

He has been captured by Shinra for use as a test subject, and is being held in Hojo’s scientific facility. Speaking of the sinister scientist…

This enigmatic figure is the Director of Shira Electric Power Company’s Science Division. He creates various biological weapons for the company, and he’s not bound by notions morality.

Hojo will not hesitate to take a life if his experiments demand it. In a previous collaborative role, he performed special surgery on soldiers to increase their physical strength, giving birth to the elite SOLDIERS.

Tifa in battle – the basics

Next we’ll look at one of the main heroes, and how she operates in battle. Tifa Lockhart is a swift fighter, who uses her martial arts to damage enemies.

She can combo fast attacks with repeated presses of the □ button, and unleash a powerful three-stage special ability by pressing △.

In the following screenshots, we can her unleashing some of those skills.

Tifa’s battle abilities

When Tifa’s ATB bar is filled by attacking enemies, she can use a special ability. Here are just a couple of the amazing things she can do:

She can also finish off an enemy with an intensely powerful dive kick.

Materia and weapons

Here’s a look at some of the Materia and weapons you’ll be able to use in Final Fantasy VII: Remake:

Healing Materia lets you use spells like Cure and Cura. In the screenshot above, we can see Aerith use Regen – a spell that will gradually heal its target for a while.

The Deadly Dodge Materia turns any attack made after dodging an attack into a powerful melee attack. Any character can use it – not just Cloud.

When you equip a weapon, it will be reflected in your character’s appearance in and out of battle. This image is a reimagined version of a fan-favourite – we think the team nailed it!

Mercenary Quests

Cloud can help out the many people across Midgar including local merchants. These tasks are varied –  he’ll be asked to deal with anything, from taking down dangerous monsters to helping find a lost cat.

In this quest, Cloud is asked to deal with some Drakes. He’ll get valuable rewards for completing the task.

Battle Report

Meet Chadley – a 15 year-old Research trainee for Shinra’s Science Division. He’s researching new types of Materia, and needs a little help from Cloud.

You can collect Battle Report quests from Chadley. He’ll ask you to achieve various requirements, such as making a certain number of enemies burst or use Sense Materia a certain number of times.

Complete these tasks, and he’ll develop more Materia that you can buy.

Environments

In Final Fantasy VII: Remake, iconic locations from the original game have been recreated with amazing modern graphics. Not only that, there will be additional areas that you couldn’t get to in the original.

Let’s take a look at a couple of areas:

GameTitle on PS4

The Mako Reactor sucks out Mako from the core of the planet. It’s then turned into electricity or liquid gas for cities – though it’s also used to produce Materia and for other research.

Shinra Electric Power Company has a monopoly on the resource, and have set up various Mako reactors across the world.

However, some question the safety of this, and there have been confirmed cases of accidents in reactors at remote locations…

GameTitle on PS4

The Corkscrew Tunnel connects the slum streets to the nicer living areas on top of Midgar’s plates.

The tunnel coils upwards in a giant corkscrew through the centre of Midgar. Passengers on the train carriages are always checked for ID and their entry and exits are monitored.

When an intruder is discovered, military weapons are deployed and intruders are dealt with quickly.

Final Fantasy VII Remake releases for PlayStation 4 on 10th April, 2020. To pre-order, head to PlayStation Store or www.FFVII-REMAKE.com.
