New Final Fantasy VII Remake, Kingdom Hearts 3 Screenshots Emerge

At this year's Monaco Anime Game International Conferences, Tetsuya Nomura showed off some screenshots for his two highly anticipated projects at Square Enix: The Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III.

The shots for the Final Fantasy VII Remake show Cloud taking cover behind a box as Shinra soldiers take fire at him. We can also see the command menu and health bards displayed during the action, further pushing the idea that combat may take place in the same mode as the overworld travel. We also see an Active Time Battle bar, which should appease old-school fans. A second screen shows a boss battle with what looks like a scorpion tank.

Nomura also showed an image of Kingdom Hearts III, showing series protagonist Sora fighting against a new incarnation of the Heartless on the movie Hercules' rendition of Olympus.

No release date was given for either title.

Our Take
That VII remake looks better every time I see it. Maybe I'll finally play through that game now!
