Summoning is part of the experience in Final Fantasy games and Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion has a unique take on how to summon. Summons are still accessible through the use of Materia as in the other games in the same universe, but how to Summon in Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion is different since it’s part of the game’s DMW system.
Below, we are covering everything seasoned or new players need to know about the summoning system in this game. This guide breaks down the two modes of summoning and how they are integrated into the Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion DMW system.
How to summon in Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion
To summon in Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion, you must acquire the Materia or items necessary to call upon the creatures. After having at least one Summon materia/item, you will unlock the chance of your DMW entering the Summon Mode or the Chocobo Mode, thus allowing you to summon. Each Summon in the game becomes available to you once you have their corresponding materia or item in the inventory.
Collecting them is not that difficult, but it might take some time since you need to go through side quests as we explain in our Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion Summon Materia guide. The Summons possible to be invoked in the Summon mode are Ifrit, Odin, Bahamut, Bahamut Fury, and Phoenix. On the other hand, if you enter the Chocobo mode, you may summon the following creatures: Chocobo, Cactuar, Tonberry, Cait Sith, Moogle, and Magic Pot. While the first group of summons is focused on dealing damage, the second has different abilities, from damaging to supporting buffs.
Unlike other Final Fantasy titles, you can’t directly use a summon nor affect the chance of starting Summon mode and Chocobo Mode. You are only going to be able to summon – and thus use the summon limit break – if you get three matching images of the Summon when your DMW enters one of the two modes. Once this happens, the option to invoke the Summon will appear on the screen.
That covers how to summon in Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Reunion. If you are interested in learning more about the game, then be sure to keep an eye out for more guides here.
