Square Enix showed off a lot of Final Fantasy VII Remake during its E3 2019 presentation, including info on its new combat systems and March 2020 release date. The Japanese company is ready to show off more, as we've just been given a huge assortment of Final Fantasy VII Remake screenshots.

The screenshots look similar to Kingdom Hearts in aesthetic, but with a darker, grittier palette. They show iconic characters Aeris, Barret, Cloud, Tifa, and Sephiroth, all rendered in typical Testuya Nomura fashion. Some are stills from combat encounters with bits of the HUD visible, while others are likely from explorative gameplay sections. There also seem to be a handful of shots from possible in-game cutscenes, including an epic back-to-back shot of Cloud and Tifa. You can check out the new screens below.

We discussed the modernization of Final Fantasy VII Remake in a feature article, with managing editor Peter Brown saying he "[fell] in love with the world and characters all over again" after going hands-on with the game on the E3 2019 show floor. "It would be far too premature to claim that the final product will be as amazing as my demo, but at the risk of sounding naive once again, I'm given hope as I recall the experience I had when I first played the original PlayStation demo in 1996, and how that experienced carried over to the full game," Brown wrote of the demo.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020. Square also confirmed that the hotly-anticipated RPG will be playable on PlayStation 5 and will span two discs worth of gameplay content.
