What I got from that guys video is that you have the option to slow it down and gain more control over the battle.
I cant really say to what extent, cuz I haven't played the demo myself; but I'm optimistic

I'm one of the guys that would have had no problem with FF games keeping the old school combat system; but I understand the need to speed things up and make it faster and more action-y. You're always trying to attract new players, and sometimes that brings about a change in direction

So I've just finished Final Fantasy VI, and it's the only game from the SNES/Famicon era that I've played. Was well impressed.

There was only so much you could do with 16 bit animations, and still, the game is visually stunning even for today.

Also did not mind the leveling system and having to equip Espers to boost stats and learn spells, despite many complaints about it. I kind of liked having to keep track of many things and switching the Espers around. It's one of those things I generally enjoy about FF games, the work involved and the rewards gained. I will however say that I do wish there were superbosses in the game that you needed really high stats to beat. All of the Legendary dragons were really not "Legendary" and quite easy to beat. And Doom Gaze was a joke.

Other than that, they really created an amazing story with each character having depth and motivations. Not to mention an excellent villain.

VI is an excellent FF game.

I love the fact that you have so many characters...and none of them is the "main protagonist" of the story, unlike what happens in pretty much all the other entries of the series.

Who is your favourite character? Mine is Celes

And the Opera House segment is perfect.

And Kefka is brilliant, and so is the soundtrack.

Aaaaannnnddddd...

...no, ok, I'll stop but I could easily go on. Some people consider VI to be the best FF, and they have some good reasons to do so.

All of the characters have great backstories, my favourite was probably Terra and if the game had one main protagonist she would probably be the closest one to it. I really appreciate the amount of creativity that went into the writing.

It does look wonderful and I appreciate all the effort (and money) it took to make such a visually stunning game.

Square always excels in the visuals department, so I am more interested in how it feels control-wise. It seems like it has elements from XII, XIII and XV, to name only a few, and I honestly hope it doesn't borrow that much from XV

I honestly didn’t expect to see so much in that trailer. It was literally my childhood game coming to life with updated graphics. The mini games, the dressing up for the Don, the turning into a frog in the sewers. Etc. it was all just perfect. And I actually don’t mind the voice actors. I’m just so ecstatic. I cannot wait to see the gold saucer when it comes.
