More gameplay details and the release date of “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” have been confirmed in the recent Square Enix’s E3 press conference. The upcoming game will have pre-order bundles, such as the Collector’s Edition package that’ll include DLC and collectibles. The game is also expected to be one of the early titles to watch out for in 2020.

During the Square Enix E3 2019 conference, “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” was the first game to be revealed. Square Enix featured a close-up explanation of the game’s combat system. Apparently, players will have to keep hitting enemies to fill up the ATB gauge. The ATB Gauge is needed by players to access Tactical Mode, which would momentarily stop time. During this frozen time, players have the opportunity to plan out their next move and use their character’s special abilities that are specific for each character.

While showcasing more details about its battle system, Square Enix teased a bit more of the moves and abilities of Aerith and Tifa. In the reveal, Aerith focuses more on casting spells while Tifa has access to some martial arts special moves. The presentation also had a brief focus on Tifa’s redesigned costume. So far, Tifa seems to still have her supermodel proportions, but the redesign makes her look more fit than before.

Aside from the character reveals, Square Enix also provided details about the “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” pre-order bonuses for its Standard, Deluxe and Collector’s Edition.  The Standard Edition is giving players a free Chocobo Chick Summon Materia. Meanwhile, the Deluxe Edition provides a Steelbook case, Artbook, a small soundtrack CD and two Summon Materias, namely: Cactuar and Chocobo Chick.

Finally, the Collector’s Edition will provide all of the bonuses from the Deluxe Edition, a Play Arts Kai figure of Cloud Strife on a Hardy Daytona motorcycle and a Carbuncle Summon Materia.

“Final Fantasy 7 Remake” is slated for a March 3, 2020 release. It’ll be one of the early big AAA titles to be released in the first quarter of 2020. Some of the Q1 2020 releases are Ubisoft’s “Watch Dogs: Legion,” which is scheduled for release in March, and CD Projekt Red’s “Cyberpunk 2077,” which is slated for release in April.
