03/07/2017: "Remake features action-based combat"
Last month a couple of pictures of Final Fantasy VII Remake were released during Magic Monaco 2017 that showed off the game's combat system. In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu director Tetsuya Nomura clarified that the combat would be action based.
“Battles are not command-based, they’re action-based. 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."
The switch to a real-time combat system is one of the more controversial changes in the remake. It has yet to be seen how closely it will resemble Nomura's Kingdom Hearts franchise, or the recently released Final Fantasy XV, both of which feature similar styles of fighting. Nomura also noted that the Guard Scorpion battle would feature destructible portions of the map.
