What to expect from Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

Beyond the release date, Rebirth’s new trailer reveals the return of fan-favorite Final Fantasy VII character Vincent Valentine. The Gold Saucer also makes an appearance, revealing one of Rebirth’s mini-games. According to director Naoki Hamaguchi, this comes in the middle of the main game.

Other major locations from the original FFVII will appear in Rebirth as well, though not necessarily in the way fans expect. Creative director Tetsuya Nomura explained that there would be “shifts” in the order the locations appear in. Nomura also hinted that The Forgotten Capital, the setting of one of Final Fantasy‘s most notorious scenes, would be the end point of Rebirth.

“We have mentioned this a few times before, but the order in which you can explore the locations is not the same as the original Final Fantasy VII, and there are some shifts in the order,” Nomura said. “For example, Wutai, one of the major locations, is not part of the route in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and will be visited in the next one. Although there are some changes in the order of the locations, the locations depicted in this title extend up to ‘The Forgotten Capital,’ where the greatest fate of Final Fantasy VII awaits you.”

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth releases exclusively for the PS5 on February 29, 2024.
