During Tokyo Game Show 2023, Square Enix shared brand-new gameplay footage for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Plenty of new elements are showcased here, including Chocobos and their collective abode, the Chocobo Farm, the city of Kalm far more fleshed out than ever, and the return of Chadley from Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Other shown elements are piano playing, which seems quite extensive as a rhythm minigame, and the previously announced Queen’s Blood card minigame. There also appears to be a tease of Wutai in a cutscene.
You can view the timestamped gameplay footage of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth below:
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. However, it’s worth noting that Wutai will not be featured in this new entry, with it set to arrive in the third and final part of the trilogy.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch for PlayStation 5 on February 29, 2024, on two discs.
