Final Fantasy VII Rebirth releases on February 29, 2024

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be released on February 29, 2024, for the PlayStation 5. A new 3-minute trailer for the game has revealed a ton of new information, including a first look at several party members from the original FFVII returning such as Cait Sith and Vincent Valentine.

FFVII Rebirth immediately picks up where FFVII Remake left off as Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, Barret, and Red XIII have stepped out of Midgar and start their journey to save the planet. Rufus and the Sister Ray make an appearance in the trailer.

After Cait Sith's reveal and some brief footage of them in combat, the red buggy from the original FFVII is back in FFVII Rebirth as a transport vehicle to traverse rugged terrain. Chocobos are able to climb up walls vertically and float too. Cloud is also seen briefly riding a segway, too.

Several summons make an appearance in this new FFVII Rebirth trailer too - Alexander, Kujata, and Odin. New combo attacks were displayed too between Barret & Yuffie and Aerith & Cait Sith. More interestingly, there is one for Cloud & Sephiroth, in which Sephiroth is seen in battle as a playable party member with Cloud.

The final point of interest in the new FFVII Rebirth trailer is the long-awaited reveal of the Gold Saucer in this new reimagining of FFVII. Chocobo racing, motorcycle battling, and a boxing minigame that adapts the original blocky 3D models of the original FFVII.

Before it concludes, it teases Tifa's encounter with a Weapon and Vincent's awakening. FFVII Rebirth is the second installment in this planned FFVII remake trilogy.

A Collector's Edition for FFVII Rebirth was shown at the end of the new trailer that includes a One-Winged Angel Sephiroth statue among other goodies.

Press Release

Today, during PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast, Square Enix debuted a brand-new trailer for its upcoming action-RPG, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, and revealed that the highly anticipated new story in the critically acclaimed Final Fantasy VII remake project will debut on February 29, 2024, for the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console. The company also announced that the first entry in the Final Fantasy VII remake project, Final Fantasy VII Remake, has surpassed seven million shipments and digital sales worldwide.

The action-packed trailer features iconic characters Cloud, Aerith, Barret and Tifa in a sci-fi and fantasy-inspired world teeming with danger at every turn. The unlikely heroes join forces with new playable companions, including Yuffie, a member of Wutai’s elite corps of ninja operatives, Red XIII, a beast with a flaming tail who offers words of wisdom to Cloud’s party from time to time, and Cait Sith, a wisecracking, feline-shaped robot often seen poised atop his big moogle pal, to hunt down Sephiroth, the one-winged angel bent on ruling the planet.

Players will take these characters into battle and use powerful synergy abilities to strengthen their bonds further while tackling dangerous fiends. As players journey across a vast, vibrant world ripe for exploration and discover classic locales reimagined in dazzling detail, they will also encounter dozens of hours of rewarding side content and mini-games, in addition to the rich side stories about the planet’s incredible people and cultures.

Alongside the release date, Square Enix unveiled the key art for the game. Created by Creative Director, Tetsuya Nomura, the new artwork represents the three worlds that form the axis of the story in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Sephiroth is in the center, as he represents the instigator of the events of the past. Cloud and Zack are on the side as they represent their destinies being torn apart by Sephiroth. The image of blood, fire, and red that evokes Sephiroth, stains the sky and spreads over the world. The subtle red shade in the logo of this work is also inspired by the same imagery.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has been set for release on February 29, 2024. This second installment of the Final Fantasy VII remake project 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. 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…
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth can be enjoyed on its own as a standalone adventure, with the party leaving Midgar to explore the wide world beyond. But for those wishing to deepen their understanding of the story, a recap of the previous game will also be provided. We hope that both fans and those who have never played FINAL FANTASY before will enjoy this game.” -Yoshinori Kitase, Producer

“We are finally able to announce the release date to all of you! We have been working tirelessly on Final Fantasy VII Rebirth since the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, and we can’t wait for you to experience our labor of love. In this title, Cloud and his friends, who have fled Midgar, will be setting out on an adventure across an expansive world of untold adventure in pursuit of Sephiroth, the legendary SOLDIER. While the main storyline is bigger and more ambitious than the previous game’s narrative, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth also embraces the concept of "free exploration," with compelling stories, fun mini-games, powerful monsters and so much more to find throughout the world map. We hope you will explore this world in great detail, as nearly 100 hours of adventure await. We hope you will take this new Final Fantasy game experience in your own hands to enjoy.” -Naoki Hamaguchi, Director

“This is the second title of a trilogy, and covers between the start of the journey outside Midgar to the midpoint of the original Final Fantasy VII. If Final Fantasy VII Remake was an introduction to the world and a preparation for this journey, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth serves as an illustration of the incidents that started the journey, an exploration of the people tied to it, and the journey itself, heading toward its climax. Many elements were carefully selected for this title and because this is a series, we have the unique opportunity to review and incorporate feedback from the previous title, such as by increasing the number of characters. I am sure that the bar for the next work will be raised even higher now that we have included so many spectacular elements in this work, but even so, the entire team continues to work diligently and without compromise on its development.
There is also the looming question of what fate awaits. Whether you have experienced the original title or will embark on this adventure with fresh eyes, we hope you will face the ending of this work on your own terms.” -Tetsuya Nomura, Creative Director

Game Details


Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the highly anticipated new story in the Final Fantasy VII remake project, a reimagining of the iconic original game into three standalone titles by its original creators. In this game, players will enjoy various new elements as the story unfolds, culminating in the party’s journey to “The Forgotten Capital” from the original Final Fantasy VII. After escaping from the dystopian city of Midgar, Cloud and his friends set out on a journey across the planet. New adventures await in a vibrant and vast world – sprint across grassy plains on a Chocobo and explore expansive environments.

  • An Expansive World: As the party searches for Sephiroth, you will explore the beautiful, expansive regions of the world and open up new areas to discover. Dig deeper into the world of Final Fantasy VII with rewarding side content and mini-games, plus various unique forms of transportation to navigate the world..
  • An Evolved Battle System: Combine strategic thinking with thrilling action combat alongside your comrades, including newly added characters. Deepen their relationships to unleash powerful team-based combos.
  • Beyond the Walls of Fate: In this standalone adventure for fans and newcomers, Cloud and his comrades venture across the planet, their fates unwritten, making each step outside the dystopian city of Midgar fresh and mysterious.



For years now, the Shinra Electric Power Company has been providing the world with energy at the expense of the lifestream, the "river" whence all life flows and whither it returns. After storming the company's headquarters and engaging in a series of battles for the ages, Cloud and his companions leave Midgar behind and set out for the wider world. Once in the grasslands, they hop aboard chocobos and embark on a journey with an unknown destination. Meanwhile, Zack─beaten and battered from his fight against an army of troopers─hobbles across the wastelands into Midgar with a mako-poisoned Cloud on his shoulder. Though he has managed to escape death for now, the ominous rift in the sky gives him little reason to rejoice. That is hardly the only threat facing the world, however. The Shinra Resistance Committee, backed by Wutai's interim government, declares war on the company; figures shrouded in black robes carry with them the corpse of Jenova, a veritable calamity from another world; and the Weapons─fierce and monstrous guardians of the planet─have recently awakened. Amid this chaos, Sephiroth has set his plan in motion, thus ensuring myriad fates intertwine and are birthed anew.


Cloud Strife


Voice Actor: Cody Christian

“There's no point in wasting our time worrying about fate if we can't change it.”

An ex-SOLDIER: first class, Cloud came to Midgar to start a new chapter of his life as a mercenary. At the invitation of his childhood friend, Tifa, he accepts a job with Avalanche. Together, they confront Shinra, ultimately leaving Midgar behind in pursuit of Sephiroth and the truth─a quest which will lead them to defy destiny itself.

Weapon: Sword He fights by switching between modes specializing in mobility and offense. A single swipe of his huge sword can knock several foes off their feet at once. Some of his abilities also allow him to take the fight to the air.

Barret Wallace


Voice Actor: John Eric Bentley

“This is the planet we're talkin' about! Y'all know she's gonna pour her heart and soul into this fight!”

The leader of an independent Avalanche cell, Barret spearheads an operation to take down Shinra's mako reactors. He pays a hefty price for this, however, when the company retaliates, and his comrades die in the crossfire. Armed with the memories of his lost friends and the newfound knowledge of Sephiroth's plans, he departs Midgar in hope of saving the planet and safeguarding a future for his daughter Marlene.

Weapon: Gunarm What he lacks in speed, he makes up for in both sturdiness and strength, converting his anger toward Shinra into raw firepower. He employs a variety of ranged attacks, from rapid-fire salvos to powerful explosions, which allow him to strike foes high in the air or across the battlefield.

Tifa Lockhart


Voice Actor: Britt Baron

“Ever wish you could just snap your fingers and forget the worst stuff?”

Though a loyal member of Avalanche─an underground organization that opposes Shinra─Tifa nevertheless questions the group's extremist tactics, struggling to reconcile her cause with her conscience. This internal conflict reaches a fever pitch when her group's actions effectively lead to the fall of the Sector 7 plate. Racked with guilt, she leaves Midgar in search of a new path to tread.

Weapon: Gloves She strings together swift combos while utilizing a variety of martial art techniques. Her ATB fills quickly, allowing for the use of multiple abilities in rapid succession. She also boasts several skills that deal more damage to airborne or staggered foes.

Aerith Gainsborough


Voice Actor: Briana White

“Just look at it all... A living, breathing planet. Even after everything we've done to it, it's still going strong.”

A flower seller who lives in the Sector 5 undercity and the last remaining descendant of the Cetra, a people known for communing with the planet. Shinra takes her prisoner in their efforts to reach the Cetra's foretold "promised land," but Cloud and company come to her rescue. She escapes Midgar and embarks on a journey into the outside world of which she has long dreamed.

Weapon: Staff Utilizing the power of magic, she casts spells from a safe distance and launches attacks that home in on her foes. She can also conjure beneficial wards and warp between them, as well as restore the party's HP with her limit break.



Voice Actor: Max Mittelman

“I may be clad in fur...but that doesn't mean I'll purr.”

Red XIII is a beast with a flaming tail, crimson fur, deadly claws, and the ability to speak. Cloud and company help him escape Professor Hojo's clutches, and he decides to join them on their journey. His species is known for their long life spans, and he is no exception. As this Cosmo Canyon native is the eldest member of the party, he offers its members words of wisdom from time to time.

Yuffie Kisaragi


Voice Actor: Suzie Yeung

“If I win, you get the honor of serving yours truly!”

A member of Wutai's elite corps of ninja operatives, Yuffie infiltrates Midgar on a mission to steal the "ultimate materia" from Shinra. Her plan ends in disaster, as she fails to claim the materia and loses her partner Sonon in the struggle. Just as working alone begins to take its toll on her, however, Cloud’s group comes into the picture.

Weapon: Throwing Star Using her throwing star and ninja skills, she excels at both long- and close-range combat. Elemental ninjutsu allows her to exploit enemies' weaknesses without relying

Cait Sith


Voice Actor: Paul Tinto

“Alright, everyone! By popular request: a fortune or two to steer you true!”

A wisecracking, feline-shaped robot often seen poised atop his big moogle pal. One of the Gold Saucer's most popular mascots, he is well loved for his fortune telling─a service he also offers to Cloud and friends. His adorable appearance also belies access to a surprising amount of insider intel on Shinra.



Voice Actor: Tyler Hoechlin

“Don't be afraid. It's not death─it's a homecoming.”

A former SOLDIER: 1st class of legendary renown, he is said to have died in the line of duty in Nibelheim five years ago. This is proven untrue when he appears at the Shinra Building and absconds with a research specimen known as "Jenova." He now toys with Cloud at every opportunity, seeking to change the course of destiny and rule the planet.

Zack Fair


Voice Actor: Caleb Pierce

“I dunno─hopes? Dreams, maybe? Something like that! So long as we've got those─and hold on tight and never let go.”

Zack may have worked with Sephiroth as a SOLDIER: 1st class, but he trained under a different operator, and it is from this man that he both learned to take pride in his work and received his iconic buster sword. After a grueling battle in which he overcomes the odds and cheats death, Zack returns to Midgar─where he hopes to see his love Aerith─with a mako-poisoned Cloud in tow.


  • The Evolved World of FFVII: In this game, players can freely roam across lush grasslands and rugged wildernesses, all while enjoying a wide variety of quests and mini-games.

Combat: Basic Systems

  • Fighting: Press [□] to perform a normal attack. Dealing damage will also fill the ATB gauge needed to use abilities and spells.

  • Abilities: Equipping weapons and setting materia will grant access to a wide range of abilities. Using these abilities requires you to expend charges from the ATB gauge, which fills as time passes or whenever you deal damage.
  • Magic: Magic materia can be set in weapons and armor to enable the use of spells such as Fire and Cure. Casting spells consumes both ATB charges as well as MP.
  • Unique Abilities: Press [△] to activate a character's unique ability. Some of these abilities do not require ATB, but instead take time to charge.

...And More

Combat: Summons

Summons Setting summoning materia will grant access to the power of the gods. A conjured deity will follow the player's lead and fight enemies automatically, but you can also instruct them to use special abilities. Before they depart the battlefield, summons will unleash one final attack powerful enough to wipe out any foe.



A horse-riding swordsman who brandishes an enormous blade known as Zantetsuken. He gallops toward foes and sends them flying with a single, sweeping slash.



An enormous, armor-plated weapon that towers over even other summons. No ordinary foe could possibly withstand an assault from its entire arsenal.

Combat: New Systems - Synergy Abilities

Powerful attacks in which two characters team up to turn the tide of battle. More abilities will unlock as you increase the party level─a numerical expression of how closely-knit your team is─and deepen the affinity between party members. Fill the synergy gauge by using unique abilities and prepare to unleash a synchronized assault!


Cloud/Sephiroth: [Double Helix] Sephiroth unleashes an elegant flurry of strikes, and Cloud does his best to follow suit.


Aerith/Cait Sith: [Kitty Cannonade] Aerith imbues Cait Sith's moogle with magical energy and unleashes a ranged attack.


Yuffie/Barret: [Ninja Carbine] Barret and Yuffie lean into their shared prowess and unleash a ranged attack.

...And More

World: Chocobos

Chocobos are the adorable feathered friends of the FINAL FANTASY series. In this game, once you catch a chocobo in the wild, you can call it at any time in that region, and it will offer you special assistance in traversing its home terrain. You can also customize your chocobo's equipment to create a steed that's suited just for you.

Chocobos: Hop aboard your chocobo to explore the world with ease. Try sprinting if you're in a hurry to reach your next destination.


Mountain Chocobos: Using their mighty talons, these chocobos can climb up and down steep slopes that bear special markings. Even if a destination seems inaccessible by foot, you might be able to get there on chocoback.


Sky Chocobos: These chocobos can take flight from gliding ranges and soar across peaks and valleys. Take to the skies and nothing will stand in your way.

World: New Forms of Transportation

In addition to chocobos, this game features many ways to get from one place to another. Take your friends on a buggy ride through the wastelands or do some seaside sightseeing aboard a wheelie... Put these various vehicles to use as you explore the world!


Buggy: The buggy, which can be ridden across sandy terrain, can also drive through shallow water and travel faster than chocobos. Buckle up and take the party on a wild ride through the vast desert.


Wheelie: In the seaside resort of Costa del Sol, you can ride around on a wheelie, a twowheeled self-balancing vehicle. Tour the town at your own pace, all while taking in the beautiful scenery of this land of eternal summer.

World: Minigames

Not only stories and battles, but all kinds of unique elements of fun await players. Enjoy the numerous minigames available across the game's world.


G-Bike: The "Spinning Slash," which uses a large sword to reap enemies, and the super-accelerating “Nitrous Boost" are just a few of the many things you can do in this bike game. Fight off the relentless gun-shooting participants and win the battle that goes beyond just speed.


Chocobo Races: A fierce race to test your chocobo riding skills. Break the balloons that appear along the way to use various techniques. Deepen the bond with your chocobo and aim for first place.


3D Brawler: Manipulate 3D polygons and take on your opponent in a one-onone match. Avoid your opponent's attacks and deliver a powerful punch. If you have powerful limit moves that you can unleash by continuing to land hits, victory will surely be yours.
