Square Enix Live E3 2019 started in dramatic fashion with a detailed showcase of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.

Over the course of the presentation, a wealth of information about the highly anticipated RPG was revealed, including the setting, the characters and the strategic real-time battle system.

What is FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE about?

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE reimagines the iconic RPG for the modern age.

It’s set in a world that has fallen under the thumb of the Shinra Electric Power Company - a sinister corporation that controls the planet's life force as mako energy.

In the city of Midgar, the anti-Shinra organization Avalanche have recently stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a mercenary and former member of Shinra's elite SOLDIER unit, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the consequences that await him.

How does FINAL FANTASY VII’s battle system work?

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE features a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat.

You can watch the battle system in action in the trailer:
