Today, during PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast, Square Enix debuted a new trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and revealed a February 29, 2024 release date.

The trailer features characters Cloud, Aerith, Barret, and Tifa. This team of unlikely heroes will join forces with new playable companions Yuffie, Red XIII, and Cait Sith to hunt down Sephiroth, the one-winged angel bent on ruling the planet.

You will take these characters into battle and use powerful synergy abilities to strengthen their bonds while tackling dangerous fiends.

The trailer also teased the inclusion of Vincent Valentine. While we didn't see his face, it was obvious that it was him popping out of that coffin.

As you journey across the world, you will also encounter dozens of hours of side content and mini-games in addition to side stories about the planet’s people and cultures. In all, you can expect nearly 100 hours of content.

This second installment of the Remake Project, which has moved over 7 million units, will feature elements from the previous game, as well as enhanced features such as a vast world map and synergy abilities with party members.
