FFVIIR dev heads speak on the game: https://square-enix-games.com/en_GB/news/final-fantasy-vii-remake-developersEach weapon has its own unique weapon abilities that increase in proficiency the more they are used. When an ability’s proficiency level reaches the maximum, that ability is then learned by the wielder and can be used when wielding any weapon.
The different options allow you to improve the wielder’s status or increase the number of Materia slots available.
Classic Mode can be activated by selecting “CLASSIC” from the difficulty menu. In Classic Mode, party members will act automatically, with the ATB gauge filling up as they do so. In this mode, the player only needs to select which abilities, magic, and items they will use their ATB charges for. This brings the feel of the gameplay closer to the menu-based battles from the original FFVII but with the amazing immersive graphics of the remake.
It is also possible to revert to direct control at any time during Classic Mode by pushing buttons on the controller.
The triangle button activates each character’s unique ability. Cloud’s unique ability is to switch between different fighting styles. He can switch between “Operator Mode” which has a good balance between attack and defense, and “Punisher Mode” which is geared heavily towards offense. In Punisher Mode, Cloud’s movement speed is reduced, but his basic Square button attacks are upgraded to even mightier blows.
Chocobo & Moogle use their special move “Stampede” to run down the enemy with a herd of chocobos.
While equipping Summon Materia, you will be able to summon a powerful ally once the special summon gauge fills up. Summons will fight alongside you automatically on the battlefield, but you can also use your own ATB charges to have them perform special abilities. Just before they leave the fight, your ally will unleash a powerful special move!
Assess – Materia that allows you to use the Assess ability. When you use Assess on an enemy, you can see their resistances and weaknesses, making it easier to defeat them in battle.
You can play darts at the dartboard in Seventh Heaven.
With regard to new characters, of whom I said during past interviews that there would be “none” – though they aren’t main characters, their numbers ended up growing considerably in the process of creating a rich depiction of Midgar. When you think of Midgar’s final boss, you probably think of the M.O.T.O.R., but in this game new bosses will appear and add to the excitement of the story even more.
We’ve already begun working on the next one as well, but I’m confident that playing through this title will expand your expectations just like the world that extends beyond Midgar.
Figured they'd change the last Midgar boss. They need something more important than a filler robot thing that's fought with a different gameplay style.FFVIIR dev heads speak on the game: https://square-enix-games.com/en_GB/news/final-fantasy-vii-remake-developers
Good to see Nomura already confirming they started working in part 2, even though I don't expect it to come out before 2023 at least.We’ve already begun working on the next one as well, but I’m confident that playing through this title will expand your expectations just like the world that extends beyond Midgar.
Um, they already have a finished game. It's a matter of creating any additional assets. I don't think it'll take them more than two years.Good to see Nomura already confirming they started working in part 2, even though I don't expect it to come out before 2023 at least.
The first part of the remake series is exclusive on PS4 until March 3rd 2021. After that, Square Enix can decide if they want to release the game on other consoles or on PC. It's actually rather generous of Square Enix and PlayStation to give an end date to the timed exclusivity, since other companies like to keep those details in secret just so they can get money out of consumers.Why do they need to put that on the box? lol
It's not a release guide for the entire project. They have not said how many episodes it will take nor how long each will account for, but they have expressed that there's a lot of content being packed into the first part.So 3/3/21 is the target date for completion? Did they mention how many episodes it will take, and how long each will account for? I heard the first is only Midgar... I never actually completed the game, but isn't that only intro? Like the first 2% of the game?
