Final Fantasy 7 Remake E3 2019 Trailers: Tifa, Real-Time Battles, Bombing Mission, And More
Check out FFVII's real-time combat.
Square Enix kicked off its E3 2019 press conference with a long, in-depth look at the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS4. The developer shared two new videos for the game during the briefing. The first served as a sort of gameplay demonstration, showing off the revamped real-time battle system. Here's everything we got to see, including those changes to combat.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake touts a new Active Time Battle system, with swappable party members and a Tactical mode with a slowdown mechanic. As you land attacks, you'll fill your ATB meter; once full, you can enter the aforementioned Tactical mode, slowing down enemies and allowing you to choose actions from a command menu, including using items and casting spells.
The second trailer, which you can watch above, was an extended version of the one first shown during the Final Fantasy concert on June 9. The extended version gave us our first look at Tifa, who will be a playable character alongside Aries and Barret. You'll be able to swap to other party members with the press of a button, and they'll continue fighting on their own when you're not in control of them.
