It wouldn’t be Final Fantasy 7 without summons and Final Fantasy 7 Remake is no different. Well, that’s not entirely true as Final Fantasy 7 Remake summons work a little differently than in the original game. As Remake is partially real-time, when you use a summon it doesn’t just appear, perform a move and disappear. Instead, you get to have some control over the summon until it disappears.
However, you can’t use a summon whenever you like. In Final Fantasy 7 Remake, summons can be used “When facing a formidable enemy in battle.” This means bosses.
Those used to being able to summon whenever they like might be disappointed, but it suits the new style. That being said though, just which summons are available in Final Fantasy 7 Remake?
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Summons
All up, without pre-order bonuses, there are six summons in Final Fantasy 7 Remake; Ifrit, Chocobo & Moogle, Shiva, Fat Chocobo, Leviathan and Bahamut.
The pre-order bonuses are Chocobo Chick, Cactuar and Carbuncle.
Ifrit is given to Cloud by Jessie and Chocobo & Moogle is a Materia hidden behind a giant fan in Chapter 6. The remainder are earned by defeating them in Chadley’s VR summon battles. You can unlock these battles by completing his Battle Intel quests.
Chadley is found in Chapter 3, Chapter 8, Chapter 9 and Chapter 14.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is available now.
