Not at all.
Its way closer to KH/FF13 Versus
Not even just the combat, but the entire time watching the cutscenes it just screamed Crisis Core as well. I know they are based in the same FF universe/timeline, but some of the choreography and camera angles almost seemed lifted.
Also, looking at the early FF Versus 13 gameplay, how exactly is it that different from Type-0?

But is it actually action based or just really flashy ATB system (like FFXIII)?

What is that gauge?

And why would there be a DEFEND command instead of a button, if it was completely action?

Not to mention an Attack command. If it's just action based that wouldn't be a menu option.

HMMMMMM

I doubt it's supposed to be ATB, since the gauge seems to be increasing as you land hits, looking at the footage. Combo meter that builds up to a finisher, like KH BBS or Re:coded, maybe?

HMMMMMM
Kingdom Hearts, which is directed by the same person as this, has a similar menu system. The addition of the defend command is more unusual.

That defend command makes it seem like it might not go full Kingdom Hearts? Maybe just a super-flashy & really fast-paced ATB of sorts with possible AI controlled companions when you aren't in control yourself? So a kind of mix of FFXII & FFXIII?
Huh yeah, that's a good point.

That'd actually be a pretty great middle ground for those that want turn based.

The fact that there will be a day coming where I own both Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV and the remake of Final Fantasy VII.. dreams really do come true.

Aa soon as the gameplay started I assume it was command based, not action. The menu seems to imply it.

Wow, that looks amazing. And this is coming from someone who never played the original.

Still can't believe they let Nomura out of his dungeon.
I will take FF Versus VII, please and thank you.

Probably the limit break meter.

wait, this is not a turn based game like the original? Or it is an action RPG like crisis core? And where are we getting this information from?

I can't imagine this not ending up on PC with the trajectory SE has been on lately.
oh boy. this would be even better. i would love this on pc, to be able to add reshade and high res with a steady frame rate at 4k. phew... it would be amazing.

probably since the gauge turned red whenever cloud and barret did a flashy move.

Ah shit, you're right! KH never had a separate defend command IIRC, as that was mapped to a button.

I still just can't handle this. I really can't. How is it this good looking? I just don't know what I'm feeling. Is it joy? God damnit this is so good looking.

Guys they were never going to do turn-based especially with Nomura directing.
Yep. Anyone who loved the original will still be there day one for this, and it allows them to attract the millions of new(er than PSOne) gamers who mostly wouldn't touch a turned based RPG.

The UI looks like a placeholder to me, like in the early Versus media.
I definitely hope they don't keep it the way it is. Even KH has gotten away from that kind of nonsense.

Kinda disappointed it doesn't seem to be turn based, I've got KH3 and FFXV for that ARPG itch, but eh, this still looks pretty great. I'm glad they're properly retaining the grimy, dieselpunk aesthetic.

Looks much better than I thought. But Cloud looks like Lightning in cosplay and the voice acting is terrible.

Looks pretty good. Now this is a video I can get behind because unlike the first teaser this looks like an actual game.

You people are crazy for praising Nomura this early though. You're still waiting on FFXV and KHIII and you have been for a long time. Wait for him to deliver on what he promised a decade ago before you get your hopes up.

That makes no sense, why would you remake a game if you don't even want to target people who liked the original?
What?

The point of remakes is to expand and reinvigorate the property. No one makes remakes for the original audiences. That is the exact opposite reason to do a remake in the first place!
