E3 2019 Square Enix Press Conference Roundup:
- Final Fantasy 7 Remake CGI trailer shown. Developer came on stage to thank the fans. 2 Blu-ray discs of content, because certain areas were filled with so much new content, they could be their own stand-alone game. They will not disappoint your high expectations. A great starting point for new players too. Cloud attacks & dodges in real time, you need to be more tactical with ATB (tactical slowdown mode to choose your next steps carefully and allows you to use special moves & spells) instead of just hack ‘n slashing. Cloud & Barrett gameplay shown, they then take on a Scorpion Sentinel in a boss fight. Tifa will be shown in action soon. You can set abilities/moves to certain buttons through the shortcuts menu. Game director Tetsuya Nomura joins the stage to thank the fans for waiting patiently to play the game and shows an extended trailer that shows Tifa in action alongside the other 3 in the party. Worldwide release date is March 3rd, 2019. The pre-order bonus is Summer Materia DLC. There will be a special edition called the 1st Class Edition that includes a figurine of Cloud on his motorcycle!
