The Omega Weapon is a superboss in Final Fantasy VIII. Generally regarded as the game's toughest boss, it is hidden within Ultimecia Castle. Omega Weapon is a recolor of the Ultima Weapon but carries no sword. At level 100, Omega Weapon has over a million HP. It is always at level 100 in the PlayStation version, but can be on any level in the PC version.
To fight Omega, the player must place the chosen battle team on the switch point near the fountain and use the other team to ring the bell outside the gallery, which activates a short timer. The player must switch back to the other team and locate Omega Weapon inside the chapel before the timer runs out.
Omega Weapon absorbs all elements. Omega's attack pattern is fixed and memorizing the attack pattern is of great advantage for the player, allowing them to always know what is coming next and act accordingly.
On top of earning AP and either the drop or mug items from the battle, the player also gets the Proof of Omega award. Like the Omega Badge in Final Fantasy V, the Strategy Guide in Final Fantasy IX, and the Mark of Conquest in Final Fantasy X, it has no real purpose except to prove the player has defeated the toughest enemy in the game. In the Steam version, defeating Omega Weapon earns the achievement Omega Destroyed. (More...)
Screenshot of a train passing through a playground in Midgar from the Final Fantasy VII remake announcement trailer. Trains, especially those that are part of Midgar's railway network, appear throughout the Final Fantasy VII universe. In the game's beginning, AVALANCHE hijacks a train and uses it to break into the Sector 1 Reactor; moreover, one of the game's most famous lines, spoken by Barret Wallace, is "There ain't no gettin' offa this train we're on, till we get to the end of the line." The park the train is passing through resembles a recurring location in the universe, where Aerith Gainsborough enjoyed time with both Zack Fair and Cloud Strife.
At the Sony conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Square Enix announced a complete remake of Final Fantasy VII to be released at an unspecified for the PlayStation 4, and provided a trailer that, among other things, featured this scene.
