Square Enix fans were hoping that the sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake would come out this year, but as it turns out, they’ll have to wait until early 2024.
Just in, a new trailer has been dropped for the game and it confirms the release for Feb. 29, 2024. Watch this:
The official description reads:
The Unknown Journey Continues…
After escaping from the dystopian city of Midgar, Cloud and his friends set out on a journey across the planet. New adventures await in a vibrant and vast world – sprint across grassy plains on a Chocobo and explore expansive environments.
Though the original FFVII may have closed Cloud’s arc in one game, Square Enix is planning an entire trilogy which was kickstared by Remake. What’s more, they are promising a whole twist to the story, which is why some believe that some characters who famously died in the original game have a chance of surviving in the sequel.
Plus, we see a change in some character relationships when it comes to this new timeline. Sephiroth is famously Cloud’s rival in the original game, but it looks like players will also be able to control him as part of Cloud’s party in Rebirth. What’s more, we also have some more characters that didn’t manage to make it to the first game.
With FFVII being touted as one of the most beloved games in the franchise, it’s great that Square has found a way to update the story and give newcomers a chance to discover the world of Midgar through Cloud’s eyes.
Watch out for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth when it launches for the PS5 on Feb. 29, 2024.
