Marvel’s Avengers ended up being nothing more than a damp squib but Final Fantasy VII Remake was present and correct at Square Enix’s E3 2019 press conference with a pair of new trailers.
And, against all odds, Final Fantasy VII Remake is actually looking pretty damned impressive in our first proper look at gameplay. Square Enix is opting for a blend of real-time action-based combat and turn-based decision making. Players are free to perform basic attacks in real-time, filling up ATB meters which, when activated, can slow down time and allow for the execution of the usual turn-based.
FFVII Remake will still be split up into distinct episodes, with the first release in 2020 focused solely on Midgar portion of the game. Square Enix has beefed up this early part of the game into a full release though and will stretch across two Blu-Ray discs for those who buy a physical copy.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming to PlayStation 4 on March 3rd, 2020.
