Final Fantasy 7 Remake Details

Square Enix has decided to transfer development of the Final Fantasy VII remake from developer CyberConnect2 to an in-house development team. 

This report comes from a Square Enix livestream (translated here by Kotaku) during which Square Enix project leader Naoki Hamaguchi referred to the decision as a “sensitive subject.”

However, Hamaguchi did confirm that he has taken over development of the Final Fantasy VII remake in order to keep “production and quality in mind.”

“This company decision was made wanting to control quality as well as keeping the schedule stable,” said Hamaguchi.

At this time, it’s not clear if this decision represents some kind of falling out with developer CyberConnect2 or if Square Enix simply decided to take the reigns on this major project in order to ensure it meets all production expectations.

An issue Famitsu Weekly (as reported here by Gematsu) featured some quotes from Tetsuya Nomura who elaborated on how Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s combat system will work.

“Battles are not command-based, they’re action-based,” said Nomura. “Regarding cover actions, there are places where they can be done on the map, but they are not required. Because it’s seamless, I showed that there can be actions in response to various scenes.”

Nomura goes on to specifically cite the Guard Scorpion battle as a boss encounter that has been noticeably altered from its original version. He says that particular fight will have “map destruction and a great number of attacks that weren’t in the original” which will result in a “significantly flashy battle.”

While it will be nice to see the combat system in action, this latest update does seem to place the remake’s battle system closer to Final Fantasy XV‘s than Final Fantasy VII‘s.
