After more than two decades since its original release on the PlayStation, Final Fantasy 7 has been completely re-imagined to harness the power of modern consoles. Since its launch in 1997, the critically-acclaimed masterpiece has spawned various spinoff games and animated films.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake retells the story of Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra Electric Power Company’s elite military force called SOLDIER. He joins a terrorist group called AVALANCHE which opposes Shinra’s questionable methods of harnessing power from environment. A number of events set Cloud on a mission to save the planet from destruction while constantly haunted by his forgotten past.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake was first announced at E3 2015 during the PlayStation press conference. News of the upcoming game would die down until the game’s second major trailer released on PlayStation’s 2019 State of Play livestream. Key features of the upcoming game were finally revealed in Square Enix’s E3 2019 presentation. Among those shown in the event were the new combat system, story sections, and modern character renders.
The game’s official release date was also announced at the end of the presentation. Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released on March 3, 2020 for the PlayStation 4.
New Combat System
Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s combat system draws similarities to the Kingdom Hearts series’ action-style gameplay. Players will be able to move around freely and interact with various objects on the battlefield. Avoiding and defending against enemy attacks will also be done manually with dodge and guard commands.
In battle, each character’s actions, such as using abilities, magic, and items, depend on their ATB gauge. Cloud and his party build their gauges gradually over time. The ATB gauge can, however, be charged faster by landing regular attacks on enemies.
When full, the ATB gauge allows characters to unleash special attacks, cast spells, or use items. It also gives them access to a temporary state called tactical mode. Going into this mode slows down time, allowing for better strategic decisions in the thick of battle.
Switching control between characters can be done at any time during combat. When not operated by the player, characters will be controlled by the game’s A.I.
New Story Sections
A number of additional story sections were shown in the game’s E3 2019 demo. Among these are the motorbike battle alongside AVALANCHE, traversing through the Mako reactor chamber by hanging onto ledges, and the villain Sephiroth’s early appearance in Midgar. More new sections are expected to appear in the remake along with iconic ones from the original game.
