Final Fantasy VII Remake Gets New Character Screenshots
Square Enix posted an update on its website that focuses on the characters of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Specifically, some of the game’s villains are given closeups, including Sephiroth, President Shinra, Heidegger, and Roche. Additionally, an overview was given of Aerith’s combat capabilities.
Aerith’s primary offensive move is a ranged magic attack that grows in berth the more consecutively the attack is used. Her unique ability — Tempest — is tied to the triangle button and can be charged for greater effect. She will also be able to utilize an ability called “Soul Drain” to drain MP from enemies, a necessity for her as her abilities consume magic. The summon Shiva was also given a brief focus to describe how summons would work in the game. Summons will fight automatically but can be given direct orders to use specific moves. Summons only stick around for a limited time, but when their time is up they will exit the battle using their ultimate attack, in Shiva’s case Diamond Dust. Finally, the Train Graveyard and the Shinra Building also have new screenshots.
Final Fantasy VII Remake returns players to the city of Midgar where they will once again take control of Cloud Strife and company as they take on the Shinra Corporation. The game is set to release on PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
