New Final Fantasy VII Remake Screens Feature

Source: US PlayStation Blog

US PS Blog got their hands on the latest screens and some context to go along with them.

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.

It is also possible to revert to direct control at any time during Classic Mode by pushing buttons on the controller.

The triangle button activates each character’s unique ability. Cloud’s unique ability is to switch between different fighting styles. He can switch between “Operator Mode” which has a good balance between attack and defense, and “Punisher Mode” [pictured] which is geared heavily towards offense. In Punisher Mode, Cloud’s movement speed is reduced, but his basic square button attacks are upgraded to even mightier blows.

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!

Assess – Materia that allows you to use the Assess ability. When you use Assess on an enemy, you can see their resistances and weaknesses, making it easier to defeat them in battle.

You can play darts at the dartboard in Seventh Heaven.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 already in development, Square Enix confirms.

Nomura: "Even in this Midgar portion alone, the density and volume are so great that I had to give directions to lighten them," ... "We’ve already begun working on the next one as well, but I’m confident that playing through this title will expand your expectations just like the world that extends beyond Midgar."

I was secretly hoping they would include all of 7 on the disc... hopefully they conclude it in Part 2, we can't wait freaking 10 years more lol.

My body is ready!

... Although I really hope the first part is gonna' be ported to PS5 too, I'd like all parts on the same console if possible. And yeah I know there's backwards compatibility, but... it's not the same! :P

Interesting details! I'm liking that Classic option! Not too sure I'm thrilled about the stagger mechanic being added in but I'll reserve judgement for when I play it.

Signature goes here!

By the way guys you can click on the image to enlarge them.

All on the disc lol, the first part is already 2 disks. Once all is said and done we are looking at 6+ disks. 

Man I'm really happy for fans of this game. Must feel great to finally see this remake. I'll just wait though until all the parts are out. Best believe I'm listening to that soundtrack though.

Classic and Remake

And just for fun...

Lovely, Too bad i will play this on PS5 instead  PS4

Looks fantastic and im loving that theres a "skill system". Cant wait to play it.
Still very much curious about how they are changing the story cause some of these characters I thought would, you know, only appear in part 1.
