Final Fantasy 7 Remake Guide - All Summoning Materials

 How to get all summoning materials and how to summon creatures in the Final Fantasy 7 Guide

In Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you can find a total of 9 summoning materials, which will be extremely useful in the later stages of the game, in battles with difficult bosses or for playing action RPG on "hard". There are four playable characters in total, and thanks to the presence of these materials, you will be able to provide reinforcement for each of them. These substances usually provide passive stat enhancements and allow you to summon a creature that will help in certain battles. Summons work in a peculiar way: you can use a creature only in a strictly defined battle, that is, you will not be able to arbitrarily summon it. as it was written above, these materials and the creatures they summon will be useful for specific, most difficult battles.

After you summon a creature, you can use the command menu to activate its abilities. The game will inform you that you can summon a creature: a purple bar will appear on the right side of the screen. For the first time, you can summon a creature in the fourth chapter, after penetrating the enemy base, where you need to repulse several enemy waves. After that, the call will be available against most of the bosses in the game. When you summon a creature, the purple bar will disappear. Before leaving, the summoned creature will make its last, super-powerful attack. Only one call can be used per battle!

The first summoning material will be unlocked automatically according to the plot of the game, the second can be obtained through the "Discovery" event, and the rest - from VR missions and add-ons. Do not worry, the materials of the call are impossible to miss! The first time you play through the story, you will have access to Chapter Select, and you can go back wherever you want to in the desired episode to collect the collectibles you missed.
