“Battles are not command-based, they’re action-based,” said Final Fantasy VII Remake Game Director Tetsuya Nomura. “Regarding cover actions, there are places where they can be done on the map, but they are not required. Because it’s seamless, I showed that there can be actions in response to various scenes.”
