The beautiful new key artwork for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a reverse view of the key artwork of the original game. In the artwork of the original version, the camera is focused on the characters in Midgar.

With the new artwork, the camera has now flipped around, looking over their shoulders at a wider world, which is reportedly a tease of what’s there in store in Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2. Notably, Part 2 will not be directed by Intergrade’s key director Tetsuya Nomura.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake Intermission screenshots showed the new strategic mini boardgame called Fort Condor, and revealed some details about it:
