Final Fantasy VII Remake New Screenshots Showcase Tifa, Aerith, Materia System And More
New Final Fantasy VII Remake screenshots have been released today by Square Enix, showcasing playable characters, locations, and the Materia system.
The new screenshots, which can be checked out below, showcase Barret, Tifa, and Aerith in battle, as well as the Ifrit summon and even the Materia system, which will work not too differently from the same system found in the original game. It's been confirmed that Materia will be divided into different types like in the original, such as Magic Materia, Command Materia, Independent Materia, and Summon Materia. Judging from the screenshots, Magic Materia will boost the magic but worsen strength.
The official boxart has also been revealed, and it looks quite nostalgic.

At E3 2019, we had the chance to try out the demo featuring the very fist sequences of the game, and we have been quite impressed by it.
The E3 2019 demo was short, but it made one thing clear: Square Enix is not pulling any punches with the Final Fantasy VII Remake, giving it their all to make the game the remake the original deserved. Everything works extremely well, from exploration to battle, so what remains to be seen is how the Midgar arc has been expanded for this episode. I was very skeptic before trying the demo, but now I am sure the FFVII Remake will be among the best Final Fantasy games ever released, and a far cry from Final Fantasy XV, which I did like but always felt it could have been so much more.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on March 3rd, 2020 worldwide on PlayStation 4.
