How To Change Characters In Final Fantasy 7 Remake

You can only change characters during battles, otherwise, you will play the entire game as Cloud Strife, this gives you the perspective of what Cloud experiences but in battles, you can switch characters to that of an ally and use their abilities.

Once you are in a battle, all you have to do is press a direction button on the D-pad which corresponds to the character that you want to select. This will allow you to switch characters easily and often.

The best time to switch characters is when one is downed, or is bound and cannot break free. Having different characters gives you a different perspective going into battles and at the same time it also allows you to check out all the abilities of different characters you have on your team.

If you wish to play as Cloud and not switch, you can issue commands to your allies by pressing Circle to open up the command menu and then either of L2 or R2 to tell the party member what you want them to do.

Having this sort of combat action in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, allows players to get a complete experience of the game and not just a single character with supporting NPC doing their own things.
