Chocobo Chick is having a weird hair day.

A huge new batch of screenshots and character art for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake shows off new summons, more combat with Tifa, and quests. The summons are the star of the show, as we get our first looks at the wild-feathered Chocobo Chick, the dog-like Carbuncle, and the spiny Cactuar.

They're hard to spot among the screenshots since they're shown mid-battle animation, but you can see them in more detail with the character renders, along with artwork of Hojo and Red-XIII. We also get quite a few screens of Tifa using her kickboxing style against hapless goons and monsters.

The new screens also show the party taking on and turning in various quests, outlining a few new features. Mercenary Quests are ones that help the citizens of Midgar, whereas Battle Report quests have you helping Professor Hojo's subordinate, Chadley, in return for materia.

This isn't the very first look we've gotten at Red-XIII and Hojo, though, as those came from the anniversary trailer. That trailer tucked in quite a few intriguing Easter eggs to boot. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is slated for release on PS4 on April 10.
