Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion Doesn’t Give Up Its Slot Fight

The Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Remake that was announced last month will not only see the game’s visuals upgraded, but its gameplay as well. One aspect of the Final Fantasy VII prequel that will remain intact is its unique Digital Mind Wave battle system, which was one of the most beloved parts of the PSP game when it was first released.

Operating as a slot machine-like game mechanic, the DMW would automatically spin once Zack Fair had earned enough soldier points by defeating enemies. If luck was on your side, you’d line up the same three frames and unleash the appropriate Limit Break attack on enemies. Other bonuses include healing Zack, powering up his Materia, and greatly increasing his stats if the reels all show a lucky seven image.
