Square Enix hosted a special Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary Broadcast today, where it finally revealed our first ever look at Final Fantasy VII Remake Part II which is called Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting any morsel of information on the next instalment of the Final Fantasy VII Remake saga after they were left hanging at the end of the first part in 2020.
Now, we got our first look at some scenes from the game, including some shots and dialogue that certainly add to the mystery of the remake’s altered timelines. It was also revealed that the game will be coming out in Summer (so anywhere from December next year to early 2024) on PS5. It was announced that this is the second of a total of three parts in total.
Check out the reveal trailer below:
You can find a full statement by Director Nomura below:
As revealed on our broadcast, there are currently four Final Fantasy VII projects being developed in parallel. Although each of the four titles plays a different role, they are all connected through the high quality depictions of Final Fantasy VII’s world and characters. As someone who was involved in the development of each and every one of the original titles, I deeply understand the vision and thoughts behind each project and I am actively involved in the development process for all four titles.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is being designed so that people can enjoy this game whether they know the original game or not. In fact, new players might even enjoy starting their journey with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Cloud and his friends embark on a new journey in this game and I believe that the scenes they witness after they leave Midgar will give players a fresh, new experience.
I can’t wait to share the intention behind the naming of the first title Remake and the second title Rebirth. In time, I hope to reveal what the third title will be called and where this journey will ultimately lead.
The development of Rebirth has been rapidly progressing since we adopted a new development structure. A title of this scale in which everything is interconnected even before production began is truly rare. In fact, some development has already begin on the third title. I myself have started on the development and am working towards the completion of the series.
We will work to deliver this title to the fans with the same amount of enthusiasm from now until we reach the finish line. In the mean time, please enjoy the other 25th anniversary products that will further expand the world of Final Fantasy VII.
