Final Fantasy VII Remake Screenshots Detail Leviathan Summon, Enemy Skill Materia

Square Enix revealed new screenshots of Final Fantasy VII Remake explaining the Leviathan summon, Enemy Skill Materia, and Barret's fighting style.

Square Enix revealed new details and screenshots on Final Fantasy VII Remake introducing the Leviathan Summon, explaining how the Enemy Skill Materia works, and some new screenshots focusing on Barret’s fighting style. Everything is included below.

Enemy Skill Materia in Final Fantasy VII Remake

When you have Enemy Skill Materia equipped, it gives you a chance to learn certain Enemy Skills after getting hit by said skills. You can then use them yourself. The enemy skills you’ve learned can only be used if you have the Enemy Skill Materia set to your equipment. Overall it works the same way as in the original Final Fantasy VII. Nothing new here.

Barret’s fighting style in Final Fantasy VII Remake

In Final Fantasy VII Remake, Barret is a long-ranged fighter. Pushing the square button to attack will fire a volley from his machine gun, or you can hold down the button for an extended barrage. Displayed on the screenshots above, from left to right you have his Overcharge, Focused Shot and Lifesaver abilities.

Leviathan Summon in Final Fantasy VII Remake

Leviathan is worshipped as a protector deity in Wutai. When summoned, the water serpent will wash away enemies with a tidal wave. You can read more about how summons work and check out some Ifrit gameplay here.

That’s all for now. Square Enix also revealed many more details on the Wall Market, introducing Don Corneo, but also multiple new characters. We also learned how players can collect music discs in the game and play them with the jukebox at Seventh Heaven.

Tetsuya Nomura also recently revealed tons of other details in an interview we translated, such as the fact characters like Gackt and Angeal won’t be in the game. As a side note, FF7R isn’t the sole legendary JRPG remake Square Enix is launching this year, and I definitely suggest you check out Trials of Mana if you haven’t yet.

Final Fantasy VII Remake launches on April 10, 2020. The game will be a PS4 exclusive until April 2021. A demo is currently available. If you like our coverage and wish to support us, you can preorder FF7R via Amazon here.
