Final Fantasy VII Remake Reveals the Ghost Monsters’ New Look for Halloween
Unsurprisingly, ghosts look much scarier in Final Fantasy VII Remake.
The official twitter account for Final Fantasy VII Remake tweeted on October 31 a brand new screenshot, comically showing Cloud running away from ghosts, and wishing a Happy Halloween to everyone.
Even the bravest heroes have to watch out for spooky ghosts and ghouls today!

While the English tweet doesn’t precise it, the Japanese version of the tweet explicitly confirms this enemy is the “Ghost” enemy from the original Final Fantasy VII.
Those who have played the original will have recognized Ghost as well. The new design in FFVII Remake is pretty similar but definitely has a scarier side to it now. This isn’t surprising as the graphics of Final Fantasy VII Remake are going for an anime feel but with a realistic side, and all the characters revealed so far look pretty awesome.
This brings us to one thing I often wonder about with Final Fantasy VII Remake: how all the goofy enemies will be handled. I don’t think any of them will be removed since Square Enix is going as far as keeping things like the Squats minigame. However, they’ll definitely feel different and have a different impact on players. They’ll definitely have a more serious look, just like Ghost. And all the trailers for Final Fantasy VII Remake feel way too much like a typical american action movie trying its hardest to impress. But you know what? This is fine. Since I believe a good remake should have a different experience, but at least just as great as the original game. And it’s not like the original will disappear. This is why I’m not particularly interested in Link’s Awakening on Switch because it feels like the exact same game except for the graphics.
When I say goofy enemies, the first thing which comes to mind is the “House” monster, which wasn’t revealed in Final Fantasy VII Remake yet. Or the swimsuit wearing, yuki-onna inspired optional boss “Snow” (and its recolors like Pollensalta). I’m really curious to see what they’ll look like in the remake.
Square Enix recently revealed a new trailer at TGS 2019, showing the members of Turks. Aerith’s English voice actress showed her enthusiasm in a reaction video too. And here’ s the latest gameplay video and screenshots explaining the Summon and Materia systems. Lastly, we translated a Famitsu interview with Tetsuya Nomura you should definitely check out.
