Final Fantasy VII Remake: First Gameplay Images

FFVII is a game that everyone in the universe has played, so I am not sure why Square-Enix is being so secretive about the remakeآ—it is just going to be the same game in a nicer coat of paint regardless of what they do. Nomura wanted to release a gameplay video but got shut down, so all we get are a grand total of two images. I wonder what the Knights of the Round summon is going to look like. What other FF game deserves a full-fledged remake?

This is what fighting the giant scorpion tank guarding the Sector 1 Mako Reactor at the beginning Final Fantasy VII will look like in the game’s remake. If it ever comes out that is. Tetsuya Nomura, the game’s director, revealed two new screenshots for the game at this year’s Magic Monaco 2017 event. The above image shows Cloud and Barret unloading on the security drone a firing clash of gun-arms and Buster swords. Interestingly, the new screenshots also offer a glimpse of the game’s battle interface, at least as it currently exists. I’m not sure why there’s a slot for both magic and Materia, or why Cloud and Barrett both have hit points north of a thousand. The HUD look’s simple and sleek enough, and hopefully it doesn’t fall into the same traps that snagged Final Fantasy XV.
