Final Fantasy VII

"Final Fantasy VII(FINAL FANTASY VII, abbreviation:FFVII,FF7) IsJapanで 19971/31ToSquare(Current:ニ ッ ク ス ク ウ ェ ア ス · エ) Was released byPlayStationuseRPG.Final fantasy seriesThis is the 7th work in the main series.


The original version of this work is the first PlayStation software in the series, and in 1997, it sold 202 million units in the first week of its release in Japan.[9], The total number of units shipped in Japan reached 328 million (407 million when the other PS versions, the international version and the ultimate hits version, are added).[10]).This is the number of all PlayStation software shipped in Japan.Dragon Quest VII Eden Warriors410 million books, "FINAL FANTASY VIIIIt is the third record in history after 370 million copies, and the second record in the Final Fantasy series work.[11].. Cumulative domestic sales of PS version reached 400 million[4], Recorded the highest sales in the series.In 2009, the total number of shipments worldwide was 980 million, which is the highest record in this series.[10][12].. The total number of PS versions sold has exceeded 1000 million worldwide.[5][6], The first PC version (former English version of 1998) also sold more than 100 million copies[13].


This work isSuper NintendoComical 2D up toDot pictureTurned from the first generationPlay station(3D polygon + still image / video playback) can be used to render each frame on the processor of the game console.polygonBy fusing the model and the 1D image of a high-quality single picture (specific part is a video) rendered over time on a high-performance CG workstation, the immersive feeling is greatly increased, and the later game production method Also had a great influence on[15].

From Square staff, it became clear that the total development cost and marketing cost of this work was about 8000 million dollars (each accounting for half).[13].

The title logo illustration depicts the collision scene between Meteor and the stars that appeared at the end of the game.Since this work, the Japanese version of the box art of the main series has become a white jacket with the title logo (including transplants of past works).Until thenSuper NintendoThe title design of was given the image of a dungeon, so it changed to a simple impression.

On the game system side, the installation of the "Materia System", which has a high degree of freedom in character abilities, is a major feature, and it is deeply related to the world view of this series.

"Final fantasy vi], From this work, it was released with the same title number outside Japan.Until then, outside of Japan, Japan's "FFIV" was released as "FFII" and "FFVI" as "FFIII", so "FFVII" suddenly appeared with "FFIV" to "FFVI" missing. This caused confusion among fans of the FF series outside Japan.This deviation in numbers was resolved when past works before "FFVI" were later ported to the PlayStation version in Europe and the United States, and all were corrected to the same title numbers as in Japan.

Even as of the end of January 20, 2017 years after its release, this work is still very popular and is supported by deep-rooted fans. Many CG movies and biographical worksSpin-offThe work has been announced (Later).

In October 2015PlayStation 4The production of a full remake version for the company was announced, and the first work was released on April 2020, 4.The main staff will be Tetsuya Nomura (Director), Kazushige Nojima (Scenario), and Yoshinori Kitase (Producer) who were also involved in the original version.[16].


First PSReleased during the popularization period of the field, the field is in advancerenderingWas doneCGイ ラ ス ト レ ー シ ョ ンWith a still image of3DThe character is moving.Super NintendoWhile the video expression has improved from the previous work released in, the old workSpriteIt has been pointed out that the doorway, the position of the player, and the triggers for generating events (switches and levers for opening the door, ladders, etc.) are more difficult to understand than in a simple field using.FINAL FANTASY VII INTERNATIONAL], Measures were taken to display an arrow on the screen.The style of unraveling these hidden mysteriesRPGIt can be said that the real thrill of this is that many strategy books were sold.

combatThe screen and world map are 3D for both characters and background,MENUThe basic parts such as the music of the battle scene and the music of the battle scene follow the past works.

In addition, pre-render movies are played in many important scenes.By matching the beginning of the movie scene with the field map, there are scenes that take a method of smoothly linking the game screen and the movie, and in some scenes, the character can be moved even during movie playback.

In this work, the head and body of the character are different depending on the scene.The characters that can be operated by the player are always three heads, and are drawn with modeling reminiscent of the dot picture characters of the old series, but they are drawn life-size during battle and in some movies.This work is the only specification that has different heads and bodies depending on the scene, and in the series after this work, the basic life is different for each work, but it has become uniform in almost all scenes.

Also used for 3D modelsテ ク ス チ ャIs extremely simple, basically only the character's face is drawn except for some parts, and the character with three heads does not have a mouth description.Hair and clothes are expressed by connecting monochromatic parts that are nopperi, and scaled monsters such as fish and dragons are not drawn with scales.In the later 3D FF work, not only the face but also clothes, weapons, and the body of the enemy character are finely drawn textures.

Equipment system

In this work, the equipment system is significantly different from the old series.

Weapons and armor

Unlike the traditional series, which used to wear a helmet, armor, and shield, the only items that can be equipped in this work are "weapons," "armor (bracelets)," and "accessories."In addition, the equipment system of the weapon is specialized for each character.

Among them, there are up to 8 "material holes" in "weapons" and "armor", and these holes will be described later.MateriaUsed during battle by wearing a spherical item calledcommandIncreases or the ability value fluctuates.Ability to equip with materiaabilityCalled.The number of holes is fixed by the type of item and will not increase or decrease in any way.

Also, like the old work, there is a concept of attackable distance depending on the weapon.For example, in the case of approaching weapons, it is not possible to attack flying enemies or enemies far away, and one against enemies who are said to be in the back row even within the movable range. Power drops with the exception of the department.Conversely, most weapons capable of long-range attacks, such as guns and shurikens, do not diminish in power when lined up in the back row of a party (although their original power tends to be lower than approach weapons. is there).The types of weapons that can be equipped for each character are determined, but armor and accessories are almost completely compatible with all characters.As an exception, the armor escort guard and Minerva Breath can only be equipped by men and women, respectively.

Materia system

The holes in the armor may be single or two holes may be connected. In the case of two connected holes (connecting holes), in addition to attaching two normal materia and obtaining the effect independently from each materia,Support materiaBy attaching a materia called "Materia" and a normal materia as a pair, it is possible for the paired materia to obtain additional effects, and to attach attributes and status changes to attacks and defenses.An example is given below.

  • "Kaifuku"(Recovery) Materia and"Is it all(Generalization) Equipped with materia as a setとRecovery magic "Kearl" etc. can be applied to all parties.
  • "Fire"(Flame) Materia and"Zokusei(Attribute) Set materia and equip it to armorとGains resistance to fire attributes(The degree of resistance depends on the level of "Zokusei" materia).Attaching this combination to a weapon will add a fire attribute to the attack.

Materia grows with the Ability Points (AP) that can be obtained when an enemy is defeated. When the AP reaches a certain value determined for each materia, you can level up and acquire new abilities, and when the level reaches MAX, the same materia will "blur" in the state of AP0 and you will get a new one (material in the work) Is described as "born").Therefore, it is possible to increase the material infinitely.In addition, some weapons and armor change the growth rate of AP (both weapons and armor have 0-2 times, and cloud and sid have 3 times as many weapons).

Also, the size of the materia is drawn as a tennis ball size in the event scene of this work, but the white materia isMarbleIt is drawn large. Since "FINAL FANTASY VII ADVENT CHILDREN", it has been unified as a tennis ball.


It is a feature of the seriesATB(Active Time Battle) has been taken over.In addition to the TIME gauge that indicates the waiting time, there are a LIMIT gauge and a BARRIER gauge.

The LIMIT gauge accumulates when it is damaged by an enemy attack, and when it reaches the maximum, it consumes it.characterYou can use limit techniques that have various effects for each.There are limits from level 1 to level 4 (Ket Sea is level 2), and there are two tricks for each level except level 4 (Ket Sea and Vincent are one for each level).Each character increases the maximum limit level according to the number of defeated enemies (decided the last blow) (up to 2), and all characters except Ket Sea and Vincent use the limit technique of each level. Learn another limit technique at that level.Level 1 techniques are called ultimate limit techniques, and to master them, you need to not only master all limit techniques up to level 3, but also obtain a "secret book" that exists somewhere in the world.The accumulation rate of the gauge decreases as the set limit level increases, and it is difficult for the gauge to accumulate.Also, the limit level can be set on the menu screen, and it is not always necessary to use a high level limit technique.

The prototype of the limit technique first appeared in "FINAL FANTASY VI", but the LIMIT gauge is displayed from this work.Limit techniques have also appeared in different forms in "IX", "X", and "XI" such as trance, overdrive, and weapon skills.

The BARRIER gauge represents the remaining time in the magic "barrier" and "mavaria", the former has the effect of increasing the physical defense power, and the latter has the effect of increasing the magic defense power (while it is effective, the corresponding type of damage is halved).Both of these magics have existed as Protes and Shell for a long time, but in this work, the duration of the effect is displayed with these two.

Impact on the computer game industry

From Nintendo to SCE

1990 eraThe middle stage is said to be a turning point in the computer game industry. PlayStation andNINTENDO64,Sega SaturnSo-called "next generation machines" (in this case, the current "fifth generation game machines") have appeared, and the media hasRom cassetteからCD-ROMWith the shift to, the way the game is expressed has gradually changed.

Characters, background pictures, etc.graphic The2DDot pictureから3DpolygonIt is often expressed by.In addition, various productions that make full use of pre-rendered movies have become possible.

In the early stages of development of this workNINTENDO64There was a possibility that it will be released on PlayStation (PS), but it will eventually be released on PlayStation (PS) for the following reasons.

  • The release year of the N64 1996However, the release year of PS was 1994Met. Due to the delay in the release time of the N64, it was decided in advance to make FF with PS before the release of the N64 due to Square's corporate intention.
  • The N64 itself was significantly more powerful than any other hardware at the time, but it was extremely difficult to capture movies that required a huge amount of space with ROM cassettes, and in connection with this, due to the difference in game views between Square and Nintendo, CD- Because I decided to make FF with PS that adopts ROM.

January 1995Silicon GraphicsA worldwide computer graphics exhibition hosted by the United States was held in Los Angeles, USA.Square was created on a 64-bit computer3DCGThe video was exhibited.The content of the video is "Final fantasy viIt was a polygonal representation of a scene in which three characters appearing in the movie fight against monsters.[28].

Hironobu Sakaguchi's frank answer about the reason for choosing the PlayStation is "very balanced" because the reason for choosing the CD-ROM is not affected by the capacity limitation and the production progresses and the cost of the software can be suppressed. It's a good machine, and if you read it while moving it so that you don't always feel that it's loading, I don't think there's a problem as hardware. "In addition, he also states that "I am aiming for music that does not repeat", aiming for expressions that change strength and tempo according to the scene.[29].

Sale at convenience stores

This work is "DigiCubeIt also contributes to the establishment of a distribution form in which game software is reserved and sold at convenience stores.Until then, the mainstream style was to make reservations for major titles such as "FINAL FANTASY" or buy them side by side on the release date, but in this work, by sending products to convenience stores nationwide at the same time, even on the morning of the release date. We have generally succeeded in getting the software to our customers without creating queues or shortages.This also affected convenience store distribution in the 90s.In addition, a booklet containing a collection of setting materials was planned to be attached as a pre-order bonus at convenience stores for a limited number of 50 people, but it was expanded to 77 people and eventually became a service for all pre-order purchasers. It was.

For Cloud, who has lost most of his memory of the past, this task, which was just one of the lucrative stories, later reveals his tragic and harsh past and will influence the future of the planet. At that time, Cloud had no way of knowing that it would be a prelude to throwing himself into the fight.

Stage setting

Previous workFinal fantasy viWas set to show a further increase in the mechanical civilization that had partially appeared by the same "V", but at the time of "VI" it was still based on the image of the Middle Ages in Western Europe.However, in this work, the proportion of machine civilization has increased and developed.In addition, the "castle" has completely disappeared from the world map, adding an oriental cross-cultural country (Utai) and a native American community (Cosmo Canyon), and adding the "RPG = fantasy = Western European medieval world". It was decided to build a world unique to FINAL FANTASY that was completely removed (although there were many works with motifs of the near future, future world, or machine world, it can be said that it is unusual in the field of "fantasy").In addition, the concept of "nation" is thin, and although Utai is a country, it has a strong sense of tribe.Therefore, like the castle, there is no head of state such as the "king".

In particular, two cities with well-developed machine civilization are Midgar and Junon, both of which are the bases of the Shinra Company.In these two other areasMakoto Furnace(Makoro) has been installed and is an energy source in the surrounding towns.However, while the slums moisturize people's lives, they are depriving the energy stored in the lifestream deep underground, and the land around the slums is declining, especially on the ground in Midgar. Most of the slums in Japan are grassless.There are also organizations that rebel against Shin-Ra, saying that the life of the star itself has been reduced by this activity of Shin-Ra.

For interior decoration of the city漢字Is used in large numbers, giving a unique atmosphere.Toilets and baths are drawn in many of the buildings on the map drawn from the perspective of the story, and all the people in the city show words and actions with a sense of life, and there are many comical depictions.

Lifestream and magic energy

In the world of this work, "everythingBiology deadWhen returning to the center of the star, the knowledge and energy that it had were stored (this energy is stored).Mental energyThere is a unique view of life and death that the whole world will prosper and become a source of new life again.[35]..This stored knowledge and energy is always flowing in all directions, and this flow isLifestreamIt is called.

Tifa, who was drunk in the life stream, gets into the consciousness of the cloud.Memories shared with Tifa are closely related to Cloud's past.The true past about him is gradually revealed while revealing the inside of Tifa's chest.[36].

Shin-Ra Company has spiritual energy魔晄Name it (Mako), draw this from the center of the star, and call itMakoto FurnaceA facility called is used to supply electricity to the city and enrich people's lives.Since the power of the car called the magic vehicle and the lights of the city are covered by the magic energy, the magic is indispensable to the life.However, the source of the mental energy that Shin-Ra calls Mako is the life stream, and the energy stored there is stolen, so the land becomes thin around the Mako furnace."Hoshimeigaku", which will be described later, criticizes Shinra's activities from this point.Shin-Ra opposes the weapon attacking Midgar with the Mako Cannon.The blow that was released defeats the weapon with a single blow.The piercing blow has the power to jump further and break the barrier of the large cavity.

Materia and hidden power

See above for a description of materia as an item in the game.

MateriaIs a crystal created by condensing the life stream, and is a key item in the FF series in "VII".Eur-lex.europa.eu eur-lex.europa.euIs equivalent to.It is said that the material has accumulated knowledge of ancient species, which will be described later, and through this, even ordinary humans can use various magic and combat techniques.Although natural materia exist in nature, it is rarely found only in lands rich in magic, and because there are so few such lands.For this reason, most of the materias on the market are artificially generated in a mage furnace, etc., and the Shin-Ra Company supplies them to soldiers and Turks who are assigned important duties, as well as weapons development. (In "CCFFVII", the manufacturing method of materia was clarified in some sub-events).

The knowledge and abilities hidden in Materia are diverse, and they have great power in attack and recovery magic, granting and supporting special combat techniques, and inside.Summoned BeastThere are also things that call, and there are many things that have power far beyond conventional weapons.Therefore, Shin-Ra basically uses materia for combat.Above all, it is generated directly in the center of the Mako Furnace.Huge materiaBecause it is larger than normal materia, it has hundreds of times more energy and is used for huge weapons such as the Mako Cannon.

These commonly known materias have been passed down to ancient species for a long time.White materiaとBlack materiaThere are also multiple materias that have special powers that influence the fate of stars such as ("BCFFVII").Zirconia aidSummoning material for summoning, "DCFFVII"Omega and chaosHas the power to controlAncient materiaSuch).

Meteor and Holy

MeteorIs handed down to ancient speciesBlack materiaThe ultimate black magic in this work that can be activated using.It attracts stars floating in space and drops them on the ground, but since it is a dangerous magic that can destroy the stars themselves, ancient species who feared itBlack materiaWas sealed.HoweverMeteorTo Sephiroth, who deliberately damages the stars and seeks to gain the energy of the stars to concentrate on repairs.Black materiaHas crossed, and as a result, the starsMeteorWill be threatened by the threat of.

Star Life Science and Avalanche

The idea that the knowledge that life had by death is stored in the stars and the energy that it produces creates new life was created by scholars who are continuing their research at Cosmo Canyon.This isStar life science(Seimeigaku).In the theory of star life, the knowledge accumulated by death is considered to be the source of life, and as a result, it is also the basis for criticizing the activities of the Shin-Ra Company, which will steal it.

Among those who have been influenced by the astrology and have come to criticize Shinra's activities, some have formed a clique and acted like an extremist terrorist organization.At one time, many organizations were active, but now they are hiding except for Avalanche.

In addition, the avalanche that appears in this work is clearlyEco-terroristsIt is a group and has taken a number of radical measures. It was named after Barrett's anti-Shin-Ra organization "Avalanche" that existed in the era of "BC FFVII".The home of "Avalanche" that existed in the past was Cosmo Canyon, which was influenced by the theory of star life and attacked Shin-Ra.

Ancient species and Genova

"Ancient species"(Setra) Is a race that is considered to be a different race from modern human beings in the world of this work, and those who have lived in "stars" for a long time and their blood relatives.There are mixed-race children between the two races, which are no different in appearance from modern humans.The heroine Aeris is the only survivor of the ancient species.Ancient species have the ability to interact with the star itself, called "star reading," moving everywhere on earth, guiding the central lifestream of the star, and living on the star.lifeWas prospering.In addition, ancient species are said to aim for a land called "Promised Land", and it is said that supreme happiness sleeps there, but details are not mentioned in the work.Shin-Ra interprets the "Promised Land" as a land rich in magical energy, and therefore constantly monitors Aeris, the survivor of the ancient species.

A higher life form that flew to the earth from somewhere in the universe 2000 years agoGenoa".When Genova crashed into Norspor (later in the northern part of the icicle area), there was a hugecrater(The Great Cavity in the North) was created, and a large amount of lifestream was blown out from it.The ancient species gathered in Norspor to return the life stream that blows out to the original internal flow, where they were deceived by Genoa's "mimicry ability", which will be described later.ウ イ ル スThe majority of them have been turned into monsters by being handed over.However, Genova was sealed there by an ancient species that survived, albeit slightly, without being deceived.

Genoa himself has the "mimicry ability" to read the memory of the other party and transform into the person in it, and immediately after the crash, he approaches them by mimicking the appearance of their relatives from the memories of the ancient species gathered. , Those who have forgivenmonsterI changed it to.In this volume as well, there is a depiction that the "action by Genova that mimics the appearance of Sephiroth" seen in various places is recognized as "action by Sephiroth" by those around him.

In addition, Genova has a regenerative ability that tries to regenerate by collecting the fragments even if the body is dismembered (Reunion), Which appears in the film as an action by those called Sephiroth Copies to head for Sephiroth.


Founder of the Genova Project.He mistaken Genova for a legendary ancient species and proceeded with his research, but realized his mistake and left Shinra with his descendant Ifaruna.After moving to Icicle Lodge, I shot a video here.In it, Ifarna tells the secrets that approach the core of the story of Weapon, Setra, Genova and others.She is caught by Hojo while she is carrying Aeris, but then escapes from Shinra.Arriving at the station on Fifth Avenue in Midgar with Aeris, he entrusts Aeris to Elmina and White Materia to Aeris and takes his breath.

Genova Project

About 30 years before the time of this work, Genova was excavated by Gust Faremis, who was enrolled in the science department of the Shin-Ra Company at that time.Gusto misidentified Genova as an ancient species and began a plan to embed Jenova cells in humans to artificially create humans with ancient species abilities.this"Genova Project".Shin-Ra interprets the aforementioned "Promised Land" as a land rich in magical energy, and was trying to find it using the abilities of ancient species.The Genova project was carried out in Nibbleheim, and the excavated Genova was also stored in the Nibble Mountain Magic Furnace in the north (in "CC FFVII", there are two types of experiments, "Project G" and "Project S". Is said to be).

In addition to Gust, Hojo, who will later oversee the science department, and Lucrezia (including Hollander and Gillian in "CCFFVII") are participating in the Genova project, and the plan is for the child of Hojo who lived in Lucrezia's womb. It was started by transplanting Genova cells.This child is Sephiroth (CC also states that Genesis and Angeal, previously produced by Project G, also exist).However, due to the transformation of Lucrezia immediately after childbirth, Gusto recognized the error of the hypothesis that Genova was an ancient species and left Shinra.Gusto then conducted his own research, meeting a truly ancient blood-bearing Ifarna, and having Aeris with her.Hojo, who became the director of the project after Gusto left, searched for Gusto and finally succeeded in robbing Ifarna and her daughter Aeris from Gusto.

Soldier and Sephiroth Copy

Raised under Hojo (as mentioned earlier, the genetic father is Hojo, but Sephiroth himself was raised without knowing it), Sephiroth demonstrated high fighting ability as he grew up. I went.The Shin-Ra Company, which took notice of it, began to create powerful soldiers with improved physical ability by artificially implanting Genova cells like Sephiroth.The soldiers created in this way are called "Soldiers".Those gathered by Turks and others became soldiers, but in the process, there were many who dropped out due to mental changes.In a sense, this process was also a means of selection to measure mental strength (the cloud seems to have been dropped for that reason).Those who became soldiers without causing mental disorders were divided into three classes according to their abilities.In addition to this, there is also a general written test as an element of selection (a soldier of Junon talks in the work, and even in the Perfect Guide mentioned above, "A collection of written test questions for Soldier selection is placed on a desk You can see the setting "is there").

Five years ago, when Sephiroth visited the Niflheim Mage Furnace to investigate, he learned the secret of his birth at the "Shin-Ra Mansion" in Niflheim, and after indiscriminately killing the inhabitants of Niflheim, Genova was kept. I tried to aim for the "Promised Land" with my neck, but it was blocked by the cloud.After that, Hojo embeds Jenova cells in the surviving residents in the same way as the Soldier, and carries the remaining Jenova cells to the Shin-Ra headquarters.Those who had the Jenova cells embedded gathered at the Shin-Ra headquarters to prove the reunion of Genoa.Those who have Jenova cells embedded in this form are called "Sephiroth copies".Since the subject of the Sephiroth copy experiment is not a person with strong mental power like the Soldier, he cannot control the Genova embedded in himself and is manipulated by the Genova.The Sephiroth copy is tattooed to identify the experimental body, but among those who were made into experimental bodies, the cloud, which was particularly weak and completely collapsed, did not have tattoos ( Therefore, "Sephiroth copy-in complete numbering is not used").In addition, Red XIII (Nanaki) is number 5, and I am worried that I will be strange like other copies someday, but in reality it seems that it has nothing to do with Sephiroth copy. There is (Hojo himself has made a statement that it can be said that he just chose Nanaki as an experimental male body to leave the ancient species as a seed).


When the Genova crashed, the ancient species were forced into a critically endangered situation, at which time the stars themselves wanted to eliminate Genova.WeaponHe was creating a huge biological weapon called.There are five weapons, each with different abilities and appearances, and are named "Ultima Weapon", "Sapphire Weapon", "Diamond Weapon", "Ruby Weapon", and "Emerald Weapon" (exception, "Omega" and "Omega" in "DCFFVII". There is also a weapon called "Jade Weapon" in "Chaos" and "BCFFVII").

Weapons are giant creatures with extremely high fighting ability.The weapon was inactive due to the successful sealing of Genoa by the ancient species, and was dormant in preparation for the outbreak of a new star crisis, but it began its activity with the activation of Meteor.Since the weapon is a self-defense system created by the star itself, it targets all things that are on the star, not on the side of humans.Three types will appear in the original version and five types will appear in the international version, and two of these (both versions) will engage with the Shin-Ra Company.

In the original version, only Ultima Weapons could be engaged by players, but in the International version, it is now possible to fight all three, "Diamond Weapon", "Ruby Weapon", and "Emerald Weapon".

Relationship with FFX series

"Final fantasy x ULTIMANIA In an interview with Ω, scenario writer Kazushige Nojima said, "One of the FFX staff thinks that FFX and FFVII are connected."

"FINAL FANTASY X-2], A character named Shinra appears (with the setting of a genius, he has made various inventions even during the work).In the latter half of the event, he discovered a huge amount of energy in another world (a place that is said to go after he died in the world of "FFX"), and then developed a spaceship with the cooperation of the albedo tribe Lynn, and others. Nojima said in an interview with "FINAL FANTASY X-2 ULTIMANIA" that he set out on the planet and built the Shin-Ra Company on that star.In this respect, this work and "X" and "X-2" are said to be connected.However, this is just an image of Nojima, not Masafumi (additionally, the life stream that appears in this work and the phantom worm that appears in "X" are completely synonymous, and the president god Luo and Rufaus also say that they are descendants of Shinra).
