New Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake Screenshots are Explosive

Square Enix shared a few new screenshots for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake at this year’s Monaco Anime Game International Conference 2017, via both the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts Twitter accounts.

The new screenshots feature Olympus in Kingdom Hearts III and the Sector 1 Mako Reactor in the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

You can find the screenshots below:

Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake game director Tetsuya Nomura talked up the screenshots in an interview with Gameblog.fr.

“This is the first time we’ve shown this screenshot of Kingdom Hearts III,” Nomura said. “It’s happening in Thebes and they are fighting a new model of the Heartless. It can also be transformed into a chariot, called the PowerForm.”

“Here is a new image of Final Fantasy VII, it’s sobering, but I’ve put a lot of attention on the combat system, and it’s going to be going on without interruption,” Nomura said. He also pointed out that allies won’t take damage from grenades.

“Here is the first boss in the game,” Nomura said. “It’s a Scorpion, and the scenery will be partly destructible. Sorry, I asked to be shown a video, but the office refused. The menus are not yet final, but I will talk to you on another occasion.”

While the Final Fantasy VII Remake is set for a PlayStation 4 release, Kingdom Hearts III will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
