Check out the detailed look at Classic Mode, Summons, and Mini-Games down below:

Classic Mode

Classic Mode allows players to focus on issuing commands in combat, without having to worry about dodging and blocking in real time.

Classic mode is just the thing for players who prefer to focus on tactics and strategy in combat rather than moment to moment action. And it’s perfect for fans who are nostalgic for menu-based RPGs like the original Final Fantasy VII.

Spectacular Summons

Summons were a big part of the original game, and in Final Fantasy VII Remake, they’re back and they’re better than ever.

Summons are powerful creatures you can call to your aid in battle. At TGS, Final Fantasy VII Remake’s producer, Yoshinori Kitase, gave us our first look at one of these – the iconic flame-bound Ifrit.
