If you’ve been waiting for Final Fantasy VII Remake to be released, there are more things about it you can look forward to. Square Enix has been revealing little details you might want to keep track of. The most recent update has been the game’s box art, new screenshots and new gameplay mechanics!

The Final Fantasy VII Remake western box art sticks to the original as it recreates the iconic photo of Cloud looking up at the Shinra Corporation. Included in the box art are more screenshots of beloved characters, Cloud, Tifa, and Barret.

Game mechanics

As much as Square Enix has been teasing us with more tidbits of the game, you might want to pay attention to some new features game mechanics. The Final Fantasy VII Remake has seemingly stuck with an almost real-time battle system. You essentially fill your Active Time Battle (ATB) gauge as you attack which ultimately lets you pause and execute commands.

They tweaked the classic mode a bit this time though. Classic mode will stick to a more turn-based combat. Your attacks are more automated allowing you to focus on selecting and executing commands once your ATB gauge is filled. If you’re worried about executing special abilities and attacks, you might want to check out shortcut customizations so you can make your team battle efficiently.

There’s more to Final Fantasy VII Remake. On top of all that, they’ve added materia. Materia is an item you can equip to a character to buff them with special abilities. The abilities range from added attack damage to increased defences for magic damage.

Alongside materia, they’ve also released summon materia. You equip summon materia to a character. This adds a special gauge that will gradually fill up as you’re in battle. Once filled, the character summons into the battle otherworldly entities to fight alongside you and your team.

As of late, PlayStation hasn’t released much new information on the long-awaited remake. You’ll find more details and updates on the PlayStation blog. We’ll keep tabs on new and recent updates. For now, we’ll be waiting for PlayStation’s Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s official release: March 2020.

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
