It's safe to say that anticipation for Final Fantasy VII: Remake is very high, and that's why Square Enix released a new trailer during the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) to get us even more excited.
That wasn't all that we had to see in Japan though, as a special stage show was also hosted, as you can see in the video below. This shows off plenty of new gameplay, and some extra details about the RPG, including the fact that there's a Squats mini-game.
Producer Yoshinori Kitase was on stage to show all of this off, wielding a giant sword as he did so, and he told us about Easy and Normal modes, as well as Classic Mode. In the original game, you'd wait until the ATB gauge fills, and then select a move, with Classic Mode recreating this. In other modes, the ATB gauge fills by repeatedly attacking the enemy, so the Classic mode recreates something closer to the original turn-based style.
"So anyone playing #FinalFantasy VII Remake in Classic Mode does not have to worry about the action side of the combat system, and can instead focus on selecting commands, making it possible to play #FF7R as if it were a classic menu-based RPG," the Twitter account for the game explained.
A boss fight was also shown off, with Aerith, Cloud, and Tifa fighting Aps in the sewers of Midgar, showing off Aerith's ranged attacks and Holy Circle ability. On top of that, we can see Cloud with the Ifrit Summon Materia, which he uses to summon Ifrit using ATB charges, with Ifrit unleashing Flare Burst and Crimson Dive, not to mention Hellfire as well.
"Each character can equip up to one Summon Materia each, and while playing #FF7R it'll be up to the player to decide which Summon to equip, depending on the battlefield and enemy," the thread continues.
What is the highlight?
