Square Enix has provided some details on the Final Fantasy VII Remake Summons and how they will work.
The details came in the form of a short video, where Producer Yoshinori Kitase highlighted how the remake will implement summons. Within the video, he states “the player equips summoning materia, and that materia resonates when fighting bosses or certain powerful enemies and special conditions are met. You can then select the ‘summon’ command while materia is resonating and a summon monster will arrive on the battlefield.”
Alongside describing how the Final Fantasy VII Remake Summons will work the video showcases some new gameplay featuring a summon, Ifrit. You can take a look below:
