Square Enix has announced they have teamed up with Butterfinger for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. By donating to Extra Life’s Game Day event on November 4, 2023, players can receive in-game content.
Those who donate at least $5 USD to Extra Life during their 15th annual Game Day celebration will get a code for the in-game item, Shinra Bangle MK. II. Only North American and South American residents will be eligible for a code, and a Square Enix Members account is required. Those who receive a code will be emailed it on Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’s launch date.
This accessory features an “engraving of the Shinra Company logo” that boosts stats. Moreover, “to further help raise funds, throughout Butterfinger’s Power Hour (1 PM – 2 PM EST), the brand will match Extra Life’s community collective fundraising total up to $40,000 towards the Extra Life Program.”
Fans will also be able to watch “Butterfinger team players’ fundraising live streams on Twitch” to “support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”
Neal Finkler, Vice President of Butterfinger and Baby Ruth, said the following about this collaboration:
“Since launching Game Better with Butterfinger in 2020, the brand has connected with hundreds of thousands of new players throughout the gaming community. We’re building on this momentum with our Final Fantasy VII Rebirth partnership, which brings opportunities for gamers to win in-game content and amazing gear, while empowering them to give back to an important cause.”
John Heinecke, SQUARE ENIX’s Chief Publishing Officer, EMEA, Americas and Oceania, stated the following about this collaboration:
“Through our continued collaborations over the years with Butterfinger, we look forward to providing our community with unique in-game content and fun surprises. And with this new activation, we are working with a great cause to encourage our players to give back and receive something special in the process.”
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.
