Square Enix has revealed the US boxart for the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake. And you’ll never guess what it looks like.
The image of Cloud holding his gigantic sword behind his back and gazing upward at Shinra Headquarers is so iconic that this box really couldn’t bear any other image. But it begs the question of what the other portions of the Remake are going to use for boxart now that this is taken.
And yes, multiple releases are still the plan, though nothing on this box seems to indicate that. There is no “Part 1” in the logo or anywhere else. Someone who doesn’t keep up with game news could see this box, think they were getting the full game, and then feel ripped off. We’re not the only ones that have this concern.
The boxart wasn’t the only thing Square revealed today….a boatload of new screenshots have been released, alongside the full version of the Anzu fight video that was first shown at TGS.

Wow, a look at the materia menu screen! …No, seriously, I wanted to know what this looked like.
Fighting can be messy.
We mentioned earlier that summons will work a little differently. When Ifrit here is summoned, you don’t have to wait through a splashy minute-long attack sequence….he fights with you.
He eventually performs one last showy attack before dissipating.

I had to laugh at the “Have a great day” sign over 7th Heaven. The sign in the original, which said something like “Texas Cowboy,” made even less sense.
You know this guy.
And this one.
There are “traditionalists” who still insist this person’s name is Aeris, but it never actually was — Aerith’s name is a play on “Earth,” which makes sense given how connected she is to her planet. The goof in her name was one of many mistranslations in the original.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake (the first chapter) will be out March 3, 2020 on Playstation 4.
