Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy VII movie, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, will be screened across Japan theaters in January 2024. The depicted version of the film will be the 4K Remastered release from 2021.
Set to be shown for two weeks between January 19 and February 1, 2024, fans who go can obtain a B3-sized poster of the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children key art during the first week or postcards of either Cloud and Sephiroth or the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth during the second week. Tickets will cost ¥1,900.
You can view the list of supported Japan theaters scheduled to show Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children via the official website.
Previously, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth creative director Tetsuya Nomura stated that the Final Fantasy VII Remake project will “link up” to Advent Children. Of course, we don’t know the particulars of how this will unfold, but it’s worth keeping in mind moving forward. One popular theory posited by many fans is that the Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII Remake is from Advent Children.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the sequel to the first entry in this ongoing Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy effort. This new entry is far more ambitious than the first, set to occur until The Forgotten Capital from the original game.
Players can look forward to playable Cait Sith and Red XIII, with Vincent also revealed, though not extensively. Gold Saucer will be a prominently featured location with plenty of minigames.
Speaking of, the Junon infiltration minigame has been significantly enhanced, with Cloud directing soldiers to form specific compositions. Further, Sephiroth will be playable during the Nibelheim flashback. Combat has undergone a shakeup, with new synergy attacks utilizing multiple party members, and Red XIII has a unique revenge gauge mechanic.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch for PlayStation 5 on February 29, 2024, on two discs.
Pre-ordering the game digitally will grant the Moogle Trio Summoning Materia. Further, carrying over save data from Final Fantasy VII Remake will give the Leviathan Summon Materia, while carrying over save data from the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Yuffie episode will grant the Ramuh Summon Materia.
