E3 2019: Final Fantasy 7 Combat System Detailed At Square Enix Press Conference
Following the trailer, Square Enix also talked about gameplay mechanics, showing off some basic battles against Shinra soldiers before diving into an extended gameplay clip of a boss battle.
Active Time Battle Wait (ATB Wait) makes a return in the remake. As in the original, your ATB meter fills over time, but will also speed up as you land successful basic attacks on enemies. Once your meter is full, you can then effectively stop time and enter tactical mode to issue advanced commands, whether it's casting spells, using items, or activating limit break super moves--no sign of summons just yet.
