Square Enix has revealed the North American and European package art for Final Fantasy VII Remake alongside a number of new screenshots and character renders, providing a deeper look at how players can explore the city of Midgar and battle the tyrannical Shinra Corporation.
The package art, reminiscent of the North American cover of the original Final Fantasy VII, features protagonist Cloud Strife with his iconic buster sword, staring down the headquarters of the shadowy enemy he has agreed to help takedown.
Additionally, new screenshots were released, bringing more of the Sector 7 Slums and the Seventh Heaven bar to life. Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, and Aeris (America says Aerith but not Europe) are also showcased in action-packed battles, providing an in-depth look at magic and summons, the materia system, powerful limit breaks, and more.
Furthermore, a new gameplay video for Final Fantasy VII Remake is now available, in which Cloud, Tifa, and Aeris go head to head with a ferocious beast, Abzu.
The nitty-gritty of these images
I have to be honest these images fill me with a lot of hope, perhaps too much hope. This game looks so incredibly slick. Ifrit alone is an absolute beauty. The design is clearly derived from the original but has been upgraded in design and style to its natural evolution.
Tifa moves with a grace and a fluidity of motion that is simply superb. Aeris’ design is great and her movements as she attacks are fascinating. I suppose I had no idea how she would work in an action combat setting as opposed to the turn-based style she was born from back in the 90s’.
