The long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake is just three months away, but Square Enix couldn’t resist releasing over 20 new screenshots to keep fans excited.

Players also have the option of spending skill points toward stat bonuses or additional Materia Slots.
The triangle button activates each character’s unique ability. Cloud’s unique ability is to switch between different fighting styles. He can switch between “Operator Mode” which has a good balance between attack and defense, and “Punisher Mode” [pictured] which is geared heavily towards offense. In Punisher Mode, Cloud’s movement speed is reduced, but his basic square button attacks are upgraded to even mightier blows.
