The groundbreaking fantasy is reborn. FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH, the new chapter in the epic FINAL FANTASY VII remake project, is now available worldwide for the PlayStation 5 console. Having earned a Metacritic “Must-Play” award, FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH has garnered over 50 perfect review scores from global gaming critics and has been heralded as “the best Final Fantasy of the century” by The Washington Post, “a must-play RPG” by Screen Rant and “awe-inspiring” by IGN.

In FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH, players take on the role of mercenary Cloud Strife and his comrades as they pursue legendary swordsman Sephiroth, a haunting figure from Cloud’s past bent on ruling the planet, across a vast and vibrant world rife with danger, adventure, joy and uncertainty. These unlikely heroes, including beloved, iconic characters Tifa, Barret, Aerith and Red XIII, join forces with new companions like the spirited ninja operative Yuffie and the wisecracking, feline-shaped robot Cait Sith. FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH delivers an unforgettable experience to players filled with unexpected twists, memorable characters and jaw-dropping set pieces that longtime fans and newcomers can both enjoy.

“As the director of the original FINAL FANTASY VII, I feel very proud that we were able to introduce a whole new generation to role-playing games and show so many newcomers a wider world of storytelling. Today, I’m filled with the same sense of pride when I look at what our development team has accomplished with FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH. This adventure offers rich rewards to longtime fans while welcoming in newcomers to begin their FINAL FANTASY adventure here and experience a similar sense of wonder as they would have felt in 1997. I hope that both fans and those who have never played FINAL FANTASY before will enjoy this game.” Yoshinori Kitase, Producer

 

FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH is a labor of love and our tribute to adventure – a massive world of compelling stories and our most ambitious game to date. Like those who first brought us the original FINAL FANTASY VII, we’ve reached for something that was never possible before today’s technology: a deeper portrayal of our main cast of friends, comrades and people of the Planet. By combining their powers in battle and strengthening their bonds through your choices, we hope you feel a powerful, connection with these characters and the world they inhabit.” Naoki Hamaguchi, Director

 

“For many years, I wondered what a remake of FINAL FANTASY VII could look like. Above all else, I felt we would need to do justice to the characters and story that had become so beloved by fans around the world. FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH delivers on this vision and vastly expands upon the original title not only in the size of its world, but in the quiet moments shared by party members, where warmth, joy, sorrow and tenderness can be found. As they press on and forge deeper bonds en route to their ultimate fate, I hope you will open your heart to feel these feelings alongside them. As the second title in a trilogy, we’ve enjoyed hearing our fans’ feedback from the previous title and incorporating elements into FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH for a truly breathtaking follow-up. Thank you for playing our vision for a remake, in which the past is honored by the possibilities of the present to reimagine a story for future generations.” -Tetsuya Nomura, Creative Director
