Summer Games Fest Announces June 2024 Return

The official Summer Games Fest Twitter account has announced that following the conclusion of the latest showing, the event will return in June 2024. Geoff Keighley will continue to host the show, and the Play Days event by iam8bit will also come back.

Of course, no other information was shared, which makes complete sense, given how we’re just in June 2023. Still, it’s neat to have confirmation, I guess.

Summer Games Fest had a pretty alright show this year, with my most evident favorite reveal being Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the sequel to the first entry in this ongoing Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy effort. Throughout the announcement trailer, players got a tease of the Nibleheim flashback with Cloud and Sephiroth and Zack carrying Cloud, seemingly from either the end of Crisis Core or the end of Remake.

The latest trailer from Summer Games Fest showcased quite a bit more, with a relatively open world, team attacks, Chocobo riding, and fascinating story developments that have truly made this entry diverge from the original game’s timeline. Still, familiar areas like Cosmo Canyon and the Chocobo Farm are also present. Oddly, Square Enix calls this a completely standalone entry, which comes off as too blatantly untrue, even for marketing purposes.

Check out our previous coverage for screenshots and staff comments.

We also shared our thoughts on the latest trailer.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will release for PlayStation 5 in Early 2024 on two discs. We’ll keep you all updated on this highly anticipated release.

Sonic Superstars was another surprise announcement that caught me off guard.
