The unknown journey continues in early 2024 with FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH, part two of the FINAL FANTASY VII remake project. You can check out the new trailer that released during the Summer Game Fest above.
“We’re honored to bring FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH to players around the world early next year,” said producer Yoshinori Kitase. “In the next installment of this thrilling tale, Cloud and his friends—both new and returning—will embark on a new adventure, so all players can enjoy this story, even those without any familiarity with the previous title or the original FINAL FANTASY VII. The entire team has worked fervently with love and adoration for the world of FINAL FANTASY VII to deliver an unforgettable experience for new adventurers and longtime fans alike, reaching new heights of cinematic storytelling, immersive and fast-paced combat, and rich exploration across a vast world. We can’t wait to share more details later this year.”
FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH picks up with heroes Cloud, Barret, Tifa, Aerith and Red XIII after they escape from the dystopian city Midgar and embark on a journey in pursuit of Sephiroth, the vengeful swordsman from Cloud’s past who was thought to be dead. In this standalone adventure, players will explore an expansive world, all brought to life with a new level of graphical fidelity, developed specifically to leverage the power of the PS5 console. As players unravel a gripping narrative rich with mysteries to uncover, they will also witness the personal journey of each party member and strengthen their bonds to work together and face off against powerful enemies.
