New Screenhots of Final Fantasy 7’s Remake Show Off First Boss Fight

Game Director Tetsuya Nomura surprises Magic 2017 attendees with two new screenshots from the Final Fantasy 7 remake

Being the first Final Fantasy game that I played, Final Fantasy 7  had a lot of memorable moments for me. One of those moments was fighting the giant tank scorpion guarding the Sector 1 Mako Reactor. That looked something like this, for perspective:

Not the most impressive sight given the technology of today, but this was some great stuff for the time. So, when game director Tetsuya Nomura released the following image of the boss fight at Magic Monaco 2017, I’m sure that a lot of people got excited:

It’s a lot to take in initially, but this simple picture shows us a lot about what we can expect from the remake of Final Fantasy 7. The lighting and visual effects for the fight are spectacular, the battleground is heavily detailed, and the combat system looks like it got quite the facelift — if not a massive overhaul. It also looks like Magic is being tracked differently from Materia, which is something I’d like to know more about.

Sadly, this picture and one more were all that were offered up, even though Nomura wanted to show off more in the form of a video of the game. However, he was talked out of it by other members of the development team. 

Hopefully, we’ll know more in the near future for this much-anticipated remake of one of the most iconic PlayStation games in the world. The Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development to be released on the PlayStation 4.

From Atari 2600 to TTRPG and beyond I game, therefore I am. Can generally be found DMing D&D on the weekend, homebrewing beer, or tripping over stuff in my house while playing VR. Hopeful for something *Ready Player One* meets *S.A.O Nerve Gear* before I kick the bucket.
