Square Enix Final Fantasy Announcements Blow Out

Square Enix Final Fantasy Announcements Blow Out 1

The slow trickle of information of the Final Fantasy VII remake has finally given way to something a bit more substantial — with several exciting announcements of the forthcoming remake dropping during Square Enix’s E3 2019 press conference.

The Final Fantasy VII remake will feature enough content to take up two full blu-ray discs. Square promises that Midgar alone will see a substantial increase in content. Neal Pabon, Senior Marketing lead for Square, took to the stage, giving audiences a walkthrough of Final Fantasy VII’s battle system. The game will feature real-time combat, augmented with a active time gauge or ATB system that will let players slow the action down, in order to activate special moves or Materia based spells.

Players will be able to switch between a faster combat experience or opt for the tactical route with the use of the ATB system.

Tetsuya Nomura, Final Fantasy VII’s director, joined the stage, sharing his thoughts on working on the massive project while reflecting on his time with the original Final Fantasy VII. An extended trailer for the game was shown off, featuring a first look at Tifa.

A special edition will be available that will include the game, along with a fully articulated Cloud figure + his iconic motorbike.
