A Closer Look At One Of Final Fantasy VII Remake's Most Disliked Enemy
We look at crabs in conjunction with Japan’s Crab Day.
Japan’s Crab Day has just passed on June 22 and in conjunction with the occasion, Square Enix decided to show off one of their crab-type enemies in Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Final Fantasy VII Remake has a diverse roster of enemies, and one of the more memorable ones are the annoying crabs affectionately calledd Scissorclaw. These Scissorclaws can disrupt players with their Putrid Bubble move and block incoming damage with their massive claws, which they can use to block incoming player attacks and stagger them..
The following is a concept art demonstrating the enemy's design direction. It shows the careful attention given to its body, from above and below. At the bottom is a screenshot of how the adversary appeared in the original game.
Here are some screenshots of Barret combating a Scissorclaw in the Remake. He's fighting with his Steel Pincers equipped. Square Enix's official commentary shows that they are as powerful as the crab's claws. The Steel Pincers may be obtained from Moggie in the Sector 5 Slums.
Square Enix also decided to show off the original Scissorcrab from the 1997 version of the game.
We also had a look at one of the iconic items in the Final Fantasy VII universe that were a central theme in the prequel Crisis Core Final Fantasy VI, which are Banora White apples, also known as Dumbapples.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is available on PlayStation 4, while Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is available on PlayStation 5 and PC via Epic Games Store and Steam.
The Crisis Core FFVII Reunion remaster will be released in Winter 2022 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
