New Combat Details for Final Fantasy VII Remake Revealed

Published

 on

New details about the gameplay of Final Fantasy 7 Remake have been revealed.

In Square Enix’s E3 2019 press conference, the company showcased a gameplay trailer of Cloud and Barrett facing the Scorpion Sentinel boss.

According to Square Enix’s senior manager of product marketing, Final Fantasy VII Remake will have a hybrid real time and strategic command-based system.

Making a return are ATB bars, which fill over time and as well as with landing standard attacks. Using items depletes ATB, and Materia returns and can be used as ATB attacks.

Barrett has a similar ATB system, but different abilities. NPC party members will fight without the player’s intervention, but they will not use ATB attacks without direction through  either direct control or team commands. Abilities and spells can be bound to shortcuts for gamers with a preference for action-based gameplay.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake will release on March 3, 2020 first on the PlayStation 4.

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’

Published

Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
