Final Fantasy 7 Remake is finally in everyone's hands, let's find out together, with this guide, where to find all the materials for spells and evocations

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is almost certainly the most anticipated title by anyone who professes to be a gamer for the month of April. We have been waiting for it for years, with the fear and anxiety of not knowing what would come of it. Because yes, as beautiful as you want, but there is always Nomura behind that as much as he may be an artist, sometimes the artist is really too much. The fact is, the game is finally out. It exists, it's in our hands, and we'll talk about it again shortly. These days, we want to make your life easier with a series of guides. 



We've always been expecting it ...

Before starting our guide to the subjects for spells and summons, we remind you that two other themed articles are already available here on Holygamerz. A first guide on the best weapons we have been able to experience in the game, and a very detailed one on where to find all the Music Discs. That said, let's get started… Starting with the basics! 

In Final Fantasy 7 Remake there are 43 different types of matter, divided into various categories according to the color that we will see shortly and that you will necessarily have to get all of them if you want to cast all the spells and if you want to have all the summons. A function that will make your life much easier is the “Chapter Selection”, which you will only unlock once the game is finished. We assure you, however, that it is very feasible to get them all in a first run. 


And finally it's here! - Final Fantasy 7 Remake: guide to subjects and summons

There are five different types of materials, each of them characterized by a specific color. We will have the green matter, which will allow you to cast offensive, defensive, or recovery spells depending on which one you find. There blue matter, also called support subjects. There orange matter, or practical matter. The purple raw materials, also called independent matter. And the red matters, those that perhaps interest most to all, that is the subjects of evocation. 


Using a material will obviously make you consume MP and they work the same as in the original Final Fantasy 7. Each matter can also be leveled, which increases its potency. Below, we will report the position of all the materials divided by color, specifically where you can find them for the first time, considering that some are also in double or triple copies. Let's begin!
