Final Fantasy VII Remake Gameplay from Playstation Experience 2015

In case you missed it, PlayStation Experience is going on now, and Sony started out with a bang!

The Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay footage really started off the show and everybody is going nuts! The video below details an action battle system that looks absolutely amazing, along with great 3D shots and voices of a few of our favorite characters including Cloud, Barret, Jesse, Biggs and Wedge. The footage seems to be a summarize of the initial bombing mission in the original game as well as depict some brief gameplay elements such as action combat, map movement and cut scenes. …I’ll just shut up for now and you can take a look for yourself.

ff7 remake cloud in combat gameplay

The combat mechanics seem to be a great mix between turn based and action based combat. We assume that the player makes menu based selections and the character follows out orders displaying great action animations.

Notice how all the selections in the menu are an exact replica of what you would find in the original game.

Lighting attacks look fantastic. We also noticed that “Summon” is available, even though summoning was not available at this time in the original game. Perhaps its for testing purposes. Keep in mind the game will not be finished for at least two more years.

They did a great job at making Wedge a fat guy. A true tribute to the original game. Also note that the voice for Wedge really fits the character.

ff7 remake barret

They’ve given Barret tattoos and sunglasses which is a great addition to the character design. However, the voice for Barret, in our opinion, needs a bit of work.

They gave Barret dog tags indicating they may give him some sort of military background. In the original game he was a coal miner, but they never explained his life previously.
