Since the "Final Fantasy VII" remake was revealed at E3 2015, fans and gamers have been wondering how the Square Enix title will be updated for modern games. Many have assumed that we would see only graphic enhancements in the remake but the games director Tetsuya Nomura has assured us it will be much more than that.

In multiple interviews Nomura has confirmed that no, it won't be just a graphics update, but yes, he does intent to make changes to the gameplay system to bring it up to date with modern games, reports VG247. Most notably, he revealed battles won't feature characters standing in place waiting their turns to attack.

The most recent update comes courtesy of Official PlayStation Magazin UK, via Gematsu, and offers some reassurance to fans. “We are bringing dramatic changes to the Final Fantasy 7 remake,” Nomura told the magazine.

“That being said we want to clarify: we’re not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it’s still recognizable.”

Meanwhile, the "FFVII" remake has already started taking pre-orders. Much more surprising retailers like Amazon and have the game listed as releasing Dec. 31, 2016.

We obviously know the 2016 date is a placeholder, but shows some significance. The year associated with the placeholder dates have been accurate more often than not in the past. It's also worth noting that when a game is posted across multiple sites around the same time it usually the doing of the publisher, reports Game Revolution.

We're expecting to hear more details about "Final Fantasy VII," including it's official title, later this year.
