Final Fantasy 7 Remake FAQ: Everything We Know

What music features in ‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’, and has composer Nobuo Uematsu written the score?

Now, it has been confirmed that Uematsu will return to score the newest installation in the franchise: Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is a remake of the 1997 PlayStation game Final Fantasy VII.

Matt Purslow, IGN's News Editor, reacted entirely positively to the reveal, but not only because it fills this obvious gap. Playing as Cloud, you can swing the Buster Sword around as you would in a hack-n-slash, landing blow after blow. Even though the popularity of Final Fantasy VIII pales in comparison to its predecessor, the sheer absence of the RPG in Square Enix's catalog of remasters meant the demand grew over time. If you waste them casting spells (Remake will still have materia), you might have to wait to heal after a big attack.

This menu is accessed in Tactical Mode, which slows combat down to nearly a standstill. It's in this component of the new battle system that you can really see the DNA of old-school Final Fantasy show through. The actions you can pull of in the tactical mode include casting magic, using items, or employing your cool Limit Break attacks that have now been turned into regular special attacks. Winter! I like Bulletstorm an terrible lot but not showing or even saying anything substantial about Outriders two years after its vague announcement does make me wonder if something's up with it.

Oddly, it also feels a little like Fallout's VATS system.

Fans of classic Square-Enix will appreciate several of the company's other announcements at E3 2019, which included a number of ports and remasters. The footage showed Cloud and Barret in control at multiple points with the scorpion sentinel boss fight at the beginning of the game.
