One of the most popular characters from the original Final Fantasy VII, Tifa is the second most important hero present in the entire game. Also, she is one of the main focal points of the Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, which is the sequel movie to the game.
The reason behind this statement is that Tifa can be seen kicking out a lot. Get a glimpse of a few of Tifa’s amazing fighting moves in Final Fantasy VII Remake. She is not only a martial arts master but is also the only hero present in the entire game who does not use any kind of weapon.
With the limited capabilities that came along with the 1997 PlayStation One release of the original Final Fantasy VII, Tifa’s typical offense comprised of just a simple punch and a kick with some chained Limit Breaks thrown in.
And, that is all that is going to be changed in the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Here, Tifa is shown as one of the most capable fighters who show off her prowess through a series of images that get shared on the game’s official Twitter account.
As per Square’s word in the tweet, Tifa uses a lot of action fighting packed moves in the Final Fantasy VII Remake that allows for rapid-fire combos. Tifa’s most powerful and unique ability is a three-stage move that includes Whirling Uppercut, Omnistrike, and Rise and Fall.
Back in the original game, Tifa was not unknown o the chained attacks. Further, her original series of limited breaks worked on a slot machine type system. Here, the player could engage in the selection mini-game such that they can determine the effectiveness of Tifa’s combo. They could either hit for major damage, moderate damage or can miss all of it together.
Moreover, Tifa’s strikes are not limited to only these three strikes. Square’s initial tweet displayed another outstanding series of moves. It not only showed that True Strikes will quickly attack the enemies in front of the player but also showed how Tifa can finish off enemies with a tremendously powerful kick from mid-air.
Tifa who is Cloud’s childhood friend holds a really special place in the story of Final Fantasy VII. Both of them share a deep bond that has been formed as a result of the duo’s friendship and shared trauma. Sephiroth, who is the game’s ultimate villain, is strongly disliked by Tifa and both hers and Cloud’s motives will be explored throughout the Final Fantasy VII remake as it releases on the PlayStation 4.
The game had its original release date scheduled on March 3, 2020, but the developers decided to take a little more time to truly perfect the experience for the gamers, and therefore Square Enix decided to push forward the release date by five more weeks.
The release date for Final Fantasy VII Remake now is April 10, 2020.
