This still doesn't tell us much but whatever. Anything concerning the Final Fantasy VII Remake is news these days.
Everyone is waiting for some concrete details concerning the new combat Square Enix is preparing for the long-awaited project. We already know they're planning "dramatic changes," which has incited the ire of hardcore fans.
But "dramatic changes" doesn't really mean much, so OPM asked director Tetsuya Nomura to clarify. Here's the reply (via GamesRadar ):
"And of course, that being said, we want to clarify: We're not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it's still recognizable."
They've said in the past they "don't want to interfere with what makes the original title so iconic" but at the same time, they want to give the Remake a "fresh feel." Their goal isn't simply to reproduce the classic original with better graphics (even if that's probably what the majority of die-hard fans want).
At any rate, that's all we have for now. I'll just repeat it again, for the record: We know it won't be turn-based, Square Enix. We get it. All we ask is that it's a role-playing game first and an action game second . Reverse those two and you'll ruin it. It's that simple.
