This newly announced Classic mode for the Final Fantasy VII Remake will make combat resemble the original game’s combat system more closely. Players using this mode will only be required to issue commands to their characters regarding which attack they would like them to use. The AI handles all of the actual combat mechanics.

The official Twitter account for the game explained that the significant difference in the standard and Classic modes for the Final Fantasy VII Remake concerns how players handle the filling up of the ATB Gauge. 

Final Fantasy VII Remake will allow players to experience the same kind of combat they fell in love with years ago through an updated visual experience that is truly amazing to view. Players will be able to try out these enhanced visuals and Classic mode when the Final Fantasy VII Remake launches for PlayStation 4 on March 3rd, 2020.
