It's your turn, so time to go through all of your various attacks and magic spells and pick the right move. Maybe your health is low so you need to pot. This is the way of the turn-based RPG - and the original release of Square Enix's all-time classic Final Fantasy VII. With the Remake sporting truly stunning visuals and real-time combat, fans will no doubt be glad to hear that there's a Classic Mode in there too.
Where once your ATB Gauge fills up you then select an attack or move using menus whilst the ensuing battle is paused. You can see it an action below at roughly the 17 minute mark.
Although not exactly how it was, based on the re-designed combat, it's definitely in spirit of the old turn-based ways. From what we can gather attacks will play out automatically, controlled by AI, to fill up the ATB Gauge. The player doesn't need to do anything while this happens, so you can then focus on selecting various special attacks and magic spells via an old-timey text menu tree.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is out March 3, 2020 for PlayStation 4.
