Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake - Official Thread
I think a Final Fantasy X-2 style ATB system would be welcome. That was the natural evolution of the ATB system, until XIII took it a step further. X-2's system is a little more suited. Adding chains, character placement in battle for added damage, etc.
Although, I would say that XIII's battle system, if you took out the auto battle, it functions just like a ATB system, save for being more faster.
I don't know what course of action Square-Enix will take, though. The original combat system functions fine and I had no problems playing it when I played the game again last year. This remake is not really for new fans, as the original sold well enough that it really doesn't need the crutch of "accessibility" to carry it.
