Tetsuya Nomura, Creative Director of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, in an interview PlayStation Blog On the occasion of the recent announcement of the role-playing game’s release date, he told us when it will end.
Let’s remember that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the second of three episodes of the remake of the cult Japanese role-playing game Final Fantasy VII – the first was Final Fantasy VII Remake. More possible spoiler.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth begins with Cloud, Barret, Tifa, Aerith and Red XIII chasing the vengeful swordsman Sephiroth from Cloud’s past across the wide world after escaping the metropolis of Midgar in Remake.
According to Nomura, the sequence of events and locations in Rebirth differs from the original. For example, the heroes of the remake will not visit the state of Wutai until the third game, although this happened earlier in the plot in Final Fantasy VII.
“Although there are some changes to the order of locations, the areas depicted in the game extend all the way to the Forgotten Capital, where Final Fantasy VII’s greatest fate awaits.”said Nomura.
To avoid major spoilers, let’s just say that the Forgotten Capital is the setting for one of the most shocking and talked-about twists in Final Fantasy history. This is probably where Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will end.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be released on PS5 on February 29, 2024, for which it will be released on two discs. The game will be available exclusively for the Sony console for at least three months – until May 29th.
