Final Fantasy VII Rebirth: What to Expect from the Upcoming Sequel

“The world’s in turmoil, and a new adventure awaits.”

As fans eagerly await the release of the second installment in the Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy, titled “Final Fantasy VII Rebirth,” Square Enix continues to pique our interest with tantalizing details about the game. Join Cloud, Tifa, and the rest of the iconic characters as they embark on a fresh journey in this reimagined classic.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth follows the success of its predecessor, Final Fantasy VII Remake, which debuted on the PlayStation 4 in 2020. This upcoming installment is set to be followed by a third game that has yet to be officially named, completing the trilogy.

The original Final Fantasy VII, released in 1997 for the PlayStation, is renowned as a pivotal moment in the franchise’s history. It not only brought the series into the mainstream but also spanned three separate discs due to its epic scale. The decision to release a remake trilogy, rather than a single game, mirrors the ambitious nature of the original and allows the creators to reimagine the story and expand the experience.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth: What to Expect from the Upcoming Sequel

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is slated for release on February 29, 2024, marking a four-year gap since the launch of Final Fantasy VII Remake on the PS4.

In addition to the standard edition, spanning two discs, fans can choose between two special editions: the deluxe edition priced at $100, which includes an art book, mini soundtrack, and SteelBook case, and the collector’s edition, available for $350. The collector’s edition offers four downloadable content items and a 19-inch “highly detailed statue” of the iconic character Sephiroth, along with all the contents of the deluxe edition.

Platform-wise, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is initially exclusive to the PS5, with no plans for a PS4 release. However, considering that the first installment eventually made its way to Steam, there is a possibility that the game might become available on PC following an initial period of console exclusivity.

As for the storyline, Final Fantasy VII Remake diverged from the original game, exploring themes of fate and determinism. With the series being reimagined and expanded, it’s difficult to predict what will happen in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Tetsuya Nomura, the game’s director and character designer, has promised “surprising developments,” keeping fans on the edge of their seats.

While some elements from the original game may surface, such as the visit to Kalm Village and Cloud’s recounting of his past with Sephiroth, the story’s flow remains uncertain.

A recent gameplay trailer from Summer Game Fest 2023 revealed that Sephiroth survives a confrontation from the previous game, raising questions about Cloud’s presence in Nibelheim and the significance of the Lifestream, “the very essence of our star, the blood coursing through its planetary veins.”

According to Nomura, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’s story will extend to the Forgotten Capital (known as The City of the Ancients), promising one of the franchise’s most iconic moments without giving away any spoilers.

The game boasts nine confirmed playable characters, including Cloud Strife, Barret Wallace, Aerith Gainsborough, Tifa Lockhart, Red XIII, Yuffie Kisaragi, Cait Sith, Sephiroth, and Zack Fair. Vincent Valentine and Cid Highwind will make appearances as companion characters but will become playable in the third and final installment of the trilogy.

One of the exciting new features in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the move towards an open-world experience. Players can explore the vast world using chocobos and other vehicles like Segways, making travel more engaging. The Golden Saucer, famous for its mini-games such as chocobo racing, will be among the locations to visit.

Red XIII, the canine-like character, introduces a “revenge gauge” mechanic to the combat system, allowing players to build it by blocking enemy attacks and using it to activate powerful abilities. Additionally, the game introduces “new synergy moves” that enhance the combat system’s depth by allowing the use of “synergy commands and abilities” as the gauge fills up.

The stunning graphics of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth showcase the capabilities of the latest-generation hardware, with detailed landscapes and character models that breathe new life into this beloved classic.

In conclusion, as the release date for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth draws near, fans can anticipate an exciting and immersive experience, with a fresh take on the beloved story, new gameplay features, and stunning visuals that pay homage to the original while paving the way for a thrilling new adventure. Stay tuned for more updates as we approach the game’s launch on PS5.
