Final Fantasy 7 Remake is one of the most visually pleasing games of this generation, Square Enix pulled out all the stop and delivered one of the best games of 2020, but before you get lost in the visual and storyline brilliance, you might want to about materia, especially how to summon and get all summon materia.
Materia is a spell that you can use during certain fights that will help you beat your opponents.
How To Summon Materia In Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Early on in the story of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you will receive your first avatar called Ifrit in the game, this is the first part bit of materia that you find in the game and you cannot miss it.
What it does is, it allows you to summon an avatar to aid you in battle, after you equip this materia to any character’s materia slot you will get the benefit of using it during boss battles.
As soon as you equip this, you will get the summon bar on the bottom right of your screen, keep an eye on this bat and when it is full you can select the party member whom you have equipped the materia to summon the avatar.
When the avatar is out, your party members will be able to use their ATB charges to command the avatar during battles and this gives you the ability to use special attacks as well. Use these special attacks as often as you can to defeat your opponent.
Your summoned avatar will eventually go away but before going it will unleash its ultimate attack causing a ton of damage to your opponent.
The sad this is that you can only use summon once in a battle, so choosing when to summon your avatar is incredibly important.
How to Get More Summon Materia
There’s more materia than the just early game Ifrit, you can more by performing different tasks, some are tied to the VR challenges that you can complete after you meet Chadley. In these challenges you will have to beat the summoned avatar itself to get the materia in question.
These are tough battles, but if you manage to gain victory, the materia becomes yours and you can use it in future battles.
Just like these few summon materia are tied to the pre-order bonuses and there doesn’t seem to be any other way to get them. While some can be found in the field itself.
