New Final Fantasy 7 Remake Screenshots Spotlight Aerith's Powerful Magic

Now that 2019 is nearly over, there is only a few short months before the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 4. Well, the first chunk of it, anyway. And given that it's so close, relatively speaking, it makes sense that developer and publisher Square Enix would be promoting the newly refurbished and reworked video game ahead of release. That includes, but is not limited to, new screenshots showing off the magical abilities of Aerith.

According to Square Enix, Aerith's unique ability Tempest allows her to charge up to do more damage, and she can also drain MP as well as pull up a magic shield. If the images below are any indication, the Final Fantasy VII Remake version of Aerith will go above and beyond what her capabilities were as a party member in the original game. But, then again, it's a whole new type of game, really, so that makes total sense.
