Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake, gets a massive new trailer at the end of the September 2023 State Of Play broadcast.
Not only we got a release date, it actually isn’t bombarding everyone with confusion this time around, as we get to see the breadth of content this game, which may or may not be a faithful remake of Final Fantasy VII at this point, offers.
Granted, a lot of the things seen here are callbacks to the original FFVII, including confirmation of more party members and familiar mini-games. So they should be enough familiar content to placate and keep everyone sane as where this wild retelling of FFVII may go from here.
Here’s a bullet point list of the many, many things being crammed within the new 3-minute trailer:
- Cloud leading marching troops
- Caith Sith as party member
- Buggy driving
- climbing vertical cliffs on a Mountain chocobo
- Fly on a Sky chocobo
- Ride on a Segway (called Wheelie in-game) in casual clothing
- more people in black hoodies
- Cloud shouting “Sephiroth!”
- Synergy abilities
- Barret and Yuffie do a team-up attack (Ninja Carbine)
- Aerith and Cait Sith do a team-up attack (Kitty Cannonade)
- Cloud and Sephiroth (!) do a team-up attack (Double Helix)
- New Summons
- The Gold Saucer
- Dance numbers
- Yuffie gets a dress
- Chocobo racing
- Boxing mini game but characters are blocky version reminiscent of the original PS1 game (3D Brawler)
- Motorcycle races with motorcyle combat (G-Bike)
- Tease for the “Weapons”
- Some random dude jumping out of a coffin (kidding, it’s Vincent Valentine)
- Sephiroth saying ominous things
And now that promise of the physical game coming in two discs make some sense, after all.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be out on February 29, 2024 exclusively on PS5.
