Final Fantasy VII Remake Shows a Stunning Boss Battle, Combat, and Materia System in E3 2019 Gameplay Demo

Square Enix debuted several minutes of awesome gameplay footage at E3 2019 for Final Fantasy VII Remake featuring a boss battle and more.

It’s safe to say that anticipation for Final Fantasy VII Remake has been at an all-time high, and E3 2019 has delivered immensely. Alongside a new trailer and a confirmed release date, we also saw an extensive demo giving us a closer look at the game in action.

During Square Enix’s E3 2019 press conference, the company gave a deeper look into Final Fantasy VII Remake with over 8 minutes of gameplay demoed on stage at the show.

Specifically, the demo highlighted how combat in FFVII Remake will work, which utilizes a hybrid combat system of action and strategy. Players will be able to hack and slash against enemies while building up their ATB meters to deliver devastating finishers, while players will also be able to freeze time and think strategically on their next move.

In addition to combat, the gameplay demo also confirmed that the Materia system will make its return, implying that players will be able to customize Cloud, Barret, and the other party members’ abilities and stats. The demo also capped things off with an epic boss battle that I would much rather you enjoy for yourself rather than let me describe it for you, so I would recommend you go do that now.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will officially release for PS4 on March 3, 2020. For a closer look at the upcoming title, you can check out the newly-released trailer from E3 2019 below:
