Fans are quite excited about the official release of "Final Fantasy 7" Remake. Square Enix has yet to confirm when the game will come out, but rumors suggest that more information about the hotly anticipated remake will be released sometime in February 2017. In the meantime, here are three things to expect from the game.

New Battle System

"Final Fantasy 7" remake has just been confirmed to have a change in its battle system. As previously reported by GamenGuide, Square Enix intended for the game to have an Action-Based gameplay instead of the usual Active-Time Battle (ATB) mode. The developer incorporated this change to make sure that the remake will offer more action.

Episodic Game

Earlier this year, game producer Yoshinori Kitase told Game Informer that "Final Fantasy 7" Remake will be released as several full-sized games. Kitase also revealed that each game installment will give a different narrative.

Expected Release Date

Square Enix has not announced the official release date of "Final Fantasy 7" Remake just yet but details about it could be just around the corner. Several reports suggest that Square Enix should share something about the game at the upcoming PSX 2016, which will happen on Dec. 3 and 4. If not, there's also the possibility that the developer will share details at the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC) 2017 on Feb. 18, 2017.

It was reported that Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura will be present at the MAGIC event and will shed light on "Final Fantasy 7" Remake. Nomura promised fans that they will get to know more about the game once "Kingdom Hearts 3" gets released - and that happens in January 2016. It shouldn't be long before the gaming community will know more about the reimagined epic game. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for future updates and the latest news.
