Since its confirmation to release this March many are wondering about Final Fantasy VII Remake’s combat system. The iconic materia system, according to Tetsuya Nomura in a recent interview published by Fatmitsu will remain largely unchanged.

The system will remove some materia not needed in the remake. This includes Sneak Attack, which gave the player a preemptive attack, and Enemy Away, which reduced enemy encounters. These were useful in a turn-based combat system but not in the active combat system featured in the remake.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on PlayStation 4 on March 3. You can check out more screenshots of the game here.
