Final Fantasy VII Remake reveals new gameplay, Tifa, and special editions By Tony Garsow on June 10, 2019 at 9:30 PM

At Square Enix’s E3 2019 presentation, Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase took to the stage to detail more about the game. He said remaking the game has allowed them to dive deeper into the world and expand upon it. It includes two Blu-ray discs worth of content.

The game uses a hybrid system that fuses action and strategy. Pressing Square will let you attack. You will build ATB with each attack, and when each bar is full you can enter a tactical mode. This can stop time where you can select abilities from a command menu.

Director Tetusya Nomura took the stage and wanted to extend the team’s gratitude to fans you have supported them. He shared that the game will have playable demo kiosks at the Square Enix’s booth. Nomura then debuted the long version of the Symphonic trailer. In it, we see our first look at Tifa Lockhart as well as entirely new scenes in the scenario.

Square Enix also revealed three editions including a special “Chocobo Chick” summon materia that you’ll get with your pre-order. The Deluxe version ($79.99 USD) will come with a steelbook case, “Cactuar” summon materia DLC, and a mini-soundtrack CD. The 1st Class edition ($329.99 USD) comes with a Cloud on his Hardy Daytona motorbike statue, a “Carbuncle” summon materia, and all the aforementioned gifts.

    When will the 1st Class edition be up?

  • There is a god.

  • blazeblast4

    It’s up now in the NA Square Enix store for $330.

  • Martian Wong

    Do you need an extra kidney?

  • Artemis Polara

    gameplay seems good, it’s a mesh of Crisis Core, KH, FFXV, and XIII
    Admittedly I’m not fond of the stagger gauge though (The XIII bit)

  • Wazi the pa

    I’M PUMPED

  • Martian Wong

    I wonder will the lights on his bike will light up.

  • Wazi the pa

    What part of the stagger gauge don’t you like? I think it works really well with the game’s combat system; more of an incentive to land hits more frequently.

  • Jesus Christ

    OK, this looks really cool. Tifa’s moves are very cool.

  • Wazi the pa

    Tifa’s design look great!

  • Randy Marsh

    UNPOPULAR OPINION: I love new Cloud! I can picture this voice actor actually saying “Let’s mosey!”

  • empirefall

    did anyone get a glimpse at Tifa’s panties?
    this is really important

  • Wazi the pa

    I like all the voices. They’re fitting.

  • Artemis Polara

    But we’ve already got incentive to attack frequently: The ATB gauge. (Builds faster with each hit dealt) That already rewarded more aggressive play. This seemed redundant. Don’t get me wrong, I like everything else. (Though I may use the wait mode minimally) (I prefer speed. When I played FF7 I turned the ATB gauge speed to max since the pace of the combat felt too slow)

  • Wazi the pa

    I think having more to incentivize to attack enemies, especially if they lead to gaining different and useful advantages during fights, encourages to utilize different strategies.

    That way, the more complex and tougher enemies are, the more challenges will arise from them.

  • Patrick Bateman

    I can live with it haha I think it suits him too as much as I love Steve. Not at all a fan of Sephiroth’s new voice though. ( Tyler Hoechlin ) I’ll have to get used to it. I’m fine with the rest though.

  • Patrick Bateman

    waiting on the PS4 Pro console if they release one like they did Kingdom Hearts III

  • Martian Wong

    I can only live with at least one kidney, how about the other half of my lung?

  • •december

    Summon DLC…?
    *rolls eyes*

  • empirefall

    goddamnit! she’s wearing something underneath that shirt!

  • empirefall

    okay everybody, pick your remake wifu

    if you’re holding out for Yuffy, you’re a pedo

  • empirefall

    both their character models look good, although, I think I prefer Aerith

  • Pantries do nothing for me. Just her as a character is enough.

  • No, changing EVERY VOICE gets and eye roll

  • So were the originals.

  • Most voice actors are just copying how the originals did it so that makes changing them make even less sense.

  • So they changed all the actors but told them the copy the voices style of the original actors?

  • Patrick Bateman

    this^ I’m assuming it really just came down to money tbh lol

  • And that’s sad.
    They think teen wolf and Michael Bay movie actors will make us buy the game. Smh
    I could see if they wanted to alter character speech patterns or add more comedy with a character but nope. All new voices for no reason.

  • Patrick Bateman

    Yeah I’m def gutted. Porps to the people who don’t care, I’m still getting the game because it looks amazing and I’ve waited far too long for this, but listening to my FAVORITE villain sound like a bum is going to be a hard pill to swallow when George was perfect…Other people just won’t ever understand I guess haha I wish I didn’t care like everyone else but I do.

  • Yeah George Newbern was a beast at that role .

  • empirefall

    with her flailing around in a mini-skirt,
    a little panty flash should be a given

  • Patrick Bateman

    my heart 🙁 looks like they weren’t even aware until recently….

  • James Stine

    No, she’s wearing spats underneath.

  • James Stine

    It’s just additional summons, not that big of a deal in my opinion.

  • James Stine

    Yuff- I mean uh Tifa.

  • James Stine

    Some of the originals were pretty bad.

  • who?
    If they had kept Steve Burton, Steve Blum, Quinten Flynn, R. L. Cooke and Yuffie’s voices the same I wouldn’t mind. Zack’s and Tseng’s too, but doubt they’ll be an issue for other players ( Rick Gomez was so great).

    But the only voice I didn’t like was Cait Sith.

  • why wouldn’t they tell them they arent coming back?
    cold unfeeling execs

  • But why do you need to see it?
    Save that for the hentai sites.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if her clothes were changed to a sports bra and spandex jogging shorts. Makes more sense.

  • Patrick Bateman

    Yeah I don’t get it… Looks like they pulled a Kojima :'( not only did he not let David Hayter know he wasn’t going to be involved in MGS V, but for Death Stranding he asked the actress who plays Quiet in MGS V ( Stefanie Joosten ) if she was interested in being a character in Death Standing, which she agreed to, only to find out later her character was given to someone else, and she didn’t know until the latest Trailer was released….it just seems like such a disrespectful messed up thing to do, but I guess that’s just the business?

  • •december

    True, but how many summons did we get from Midgar ?
    I hope what we get in March 2020 has more summons than FF15, but I’m doubtful…

  • •december

    LOL, and that

  • I’m sorry Patrick showed me that George Newbern was hungry to come back. Total BS

  • Patrick Bateman

    if you care enough, and have other friends who are willing. I didn’t make it, it was posted in a Final Fantasy VII group i’m in. ( I KNOW THIS 99% WON’T CHANGE ANYTHING TO THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO REPLY NEGATIVELY )

    but if there’s even a chance for the next episodes, even as a small DLC that’s OPTIONAL. I don’t see the harm in trying? if nothing happens which is highly likely, oh well!

    http://chng.it/K2kf2BRTYm

  • I’m in too.

  • James Stine

    This is just not going to happen, it’s not 99%, it’s 100% not going to happen.

  • James Stine

    I’m pretty sure they’ve known but were under NDA.

  • James Stine

    I’ve always liked Jessie.

  • Matthew

    Honestly it adds realism to the game. Nothing takes me out of a moment (and no, not sexual) then when I see something happen that defies the laws of physics. It’s jarring and outputting.

  • Matthew

    Tifa!

  • I don’t care about physics in a sci-fi or fantasy game, but fair enough. To me, it seems like they’re doing it like AC and just giving her shorts and the waist curtain she and Cloud had back then.

  • empirefall

    lol, that’s a good point

  • empirefall

    although she would look rather plain compared to the other character designs without them, I am not entirely sold on the thigh-high stockings
