Final Fantasy 7 Remake Box Art, New Screens Revealed

PS4’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake may still be a few months away, but Square Enix continues to steadily reveal new tidbits about the highly anticipated game in the lead up to its launch. In a new post on the official PlayStation Blog, the publisher has unveiled the game’s box art, as well as a handful of new screenshots and some gameplay details.

The Western box art for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which you can see below, is a clear homage to the original, recreating the iconic image of Cloud gazing up at Shinra Corporation. In addition to the box art, Square Enix shared a couple of new screenshots from the game, giving us another look at Cloud, Tifa, and Barret, plus a glimpse at the sleek material menu screen. You can take a look at those below.

The PlayStation Blog post also delves into some of the game’s mechanics, such as Classic Mode. First revealed during Tokyo Game Show earlier this month, Classic Mode is described as being closer to the original game’s turn-based combat. Typically, FF7 Remake uses a real-time battle system; as you attack, you fill up your ATB gauge, which will then let you pause the action and execute commands. In Classic Mode, however, your attacks are automated, so you strictly need to focus on executing commands when your ATB gauge is full.

The post also shares some details about Summons and material. In order to call a Summon, you’ll need to equip a character with Summon material. With that in tow, a special gauge will gradually fill up as you battle, and once it is full, you can call in that Summon.

One of the Summons we’ve previously gotten a look at is Ifrit. According to the blog post, “Ifrit battles independently but you can also command him to perform special abilities, and once the timer drops to zero, he’ll unleash his ultimate attack: Hellfire.”

Final Fantasy 7 Remake launches for PS4 on March 3, 2020. Square Enix has previously said the remake will encompass multiple parts, with this releasing focusing strictly on Midgar.
