Final Fantasy VII Remake opening movie

Square Enix has released a bunch of brand new Final Fantasy VII Remake screenshots, and frankly, we still can't believe how good this game looks.

This involves completing Battle Report quests, which task you to meet certain requirements, such as making enemies burst. Battle Reports are undertaken from Chadley, an assistant to Professor Hojo, in the Sector 7 slums.

The character Chadley is also shown.

In just a few minutes, you'll get a sense of how much depth and detail Square Enix is pouring into the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. We get an actual fleshed out look at Midgar and its people (an angle I really hope the remake delves into more as to give some humanity to what Avalache is doing), the token Aeris/Aerith scene and that memorable train ride that rubs right up against the opening of the actual game. If Cloud helps him out, he'll develop and sell Materia for the team.

Last, but not least, we take a look at areas, more precisely the Mako Reactor and the Corkscrew Tunnel.

You get a look at Tifa's moves Rise and Fall, Omnistrike, and Whirling Uppercut and three of the Materia and weapons.

"True Strike" throws a quick frontal Jab at the enemy while "Dive Kick" delivers a powerful kick from above. The Healing Materia does as you'd expect, letting you use abilities that heal friendly targets in combat.

On the other hand, Deadly Dodge is a materia that all characters can use and converts any attack made after dodging into a powerful counterattack. Pre-order any version and you'll get the creepy Chocobo Chick, pre-order the Deluxe/Digital Deluxe/1st Class Editions and you'll get the Cactuar, or pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition from the PlayStation Store and you'll get the feline Carbuncle.
