After revealing the February 29, 2024 release date, key members of the development team shared important information about Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In statements posted on various social media, Producer Yoshinori Kitase penned a message saying that this installment will “feature elements from the previous game, as well as greatly enhanced features such as the vast world map to explore and synergy abilities with party members.”

Kitase also teased about that scene involving Sephiroth and Aerith, saying that “the story will unfold more dramatically than ever before, with a rapid pace of major twists and turns.”

“We know fans are dying to see one scene in particular…” Kitase continues, also saying that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is a standalone adventure that will include a recap of the previous game.

Director Naoki Hamaguchi also shares a message with some important tidbits, saying that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth “embraces the concept of free exploration, with compelling stories, fun mini-games, powerful monsters, and so much more.”

In the trailer, we got to see a glimpse of The Gold Saucer, the various activities in the area, and a first look at the “Weapons” that are iconic monsters in the game.

Hamaguchi also says that the game will have “nearly 100 hours of adventure” awaiting players. At the moment, it is unsure whether this is just the main storyline or a completionist run, but 100 hours is certainly a meaty number.

Lastly, Creative Director Tetsuya Nomura also shares a message, saying that this game is “the second title of a trilogy, and covers between the start of the journey outside of Midgar to the midpoint of the original Final Fantasy VII.”

Nomura also specified that the team had the chance to “review and incorporate feedback from the previous title,” which will lead to a better gameplay experience.
