Basically, when I defeat the last boss in FFVII, can I keep on playing the game? I.e. return to the world map and fight other super bosses? Or should I get everything done before the final fight?

I seem to remember completing it once and I just got credits and the game ended. Seems a bit lame not be able to play on!


Once you defeat the final boss the ending FMVs and credits start to roll and eventually takes you to the main menu,

So in short, yes, you remember correctly - get all the side quests completed before taking the last boss on.

  • However there is a save point right near the final boss. I seem to recall (maybe incorrect - can anyone back me up?) that you could climb down almost to the boss, save then walk away and carry on with everything externally. – djsmiley2kStaysInside Apr 18 '12 at 12:46

    Correct - from the final save point at the bottom of the Northern Cave, you can retrace your steps back up to the Highwind and the world map. – robyaw Apr 19 '12 at 9:01
