Square Enix has been revealing details regarding the upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake and now the studio has revealed that the game will feature environmental destruction and more.
Speaking with Famitsu(via Gematsu), game director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed that Final Fantasy VII will feature destructible environments. He added that there are part-based destruction elements in the game.
Map and object destruction will also happen, and there are part-based destruction elements like breaking the Guard Scorpion’s legs.
The idea of destroying individual parts of the enemy in the middle of the boss battle is certainly an interesting one. However, it remains to be seen that how much in-depth the devs have implemented it in the game.
Recently, Tetsuya Nomura revealed that Final Fantasy VII Remake combat is not command based but it is action based.
Battles are not command-based, they’re action-based. Regarding cover actions, there are places where they can be done on the map, but they are not required. Because it’s seamless, I showed that there can be actions in response to various scenes.
He added that in the Guard Scorpion battle there are a lot of things added that were not present in the original game.
Final Fantasy VII remake is an action RPG in development at Square Enix and will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4.
