In an interview with Square Enix Blog, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth director Naoki Hamaguchi confirmed two features for the game. Firstly, the Tiny Bronco from the original Final Fantasy VII will appear and be used as a vehicle for the seas.
Additionally, a new minigame called Queen’s Blood has been announced, which is a card game popular around the world that has its own storyline.

What about the Tiny Bronco plane? Can we expect to see that too?
Of course, the Tiny Bronco will appear too!
Due to the events of the story, the time that it can actually fly is very short, but you can still use it after the wings have been damaged to cross the oceans freely – just like in the original game.
What’s your personal favorite minigame?
Out of all the different mini games available, the card game, “Queen’s Blood” could be said to be one of the headliners.
It’s an in-world card game that is very popular in the world of FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH, and a minigame that can be played many times from the start of your adventure to the end.
Winning matches doesn’t just let you enhance your deck – you can also follow a unique Queen’s Blood story as well. The narrative progresses as you engage more challenges in matches.

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.
