No Final Fantasy VII Rebirth DLC Currently Planned, Says Nomura

In an interview with outlet Vandal, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth creative director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed that there is currently no DLC planned for the game. There wasn’t much elaboration provided for why this is the case, but we can at least definitively say that the format of Rebirth will likely vastly differ from Remake.

For those unaware, the PlayStation 5 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake, titled Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, had the bonus Intermission episode featuring the introduction of Yuffie.

So, given how she was introduced, many fans were under the assumption that a similar scale of DLC would be produced for another party member or two, with a popular pick being Vincent Valentine.

He arguably received the least emphasized focus of all the party members in the original Final Fantasy VII. Still, with how strongly the Remake effort has been with characterization, I’m sure Vincent will be handled far better in Rebirth.

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.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is available on PlayStation 4, with Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, which includes the Yuffie episode, available on PlayStation 5 and PC.
