Sq. Enix’s Closing Fantasy 7 Rebirth not too long ago acquired a brand new trailer on the Summer season Recreation Fest Showcase to a lot hype. Whereas it’s launching in early 2024, particulars are already starting to leak, courtesy of insider Im A Hero Too (who reported the official identify for Persona 3 Reload earlier than its announcement leaked).
In a brand new reply on Resetera, they alleged that Rebirth is out in January and that Zack is playable “throughout an enormous half” and that solely the “the tiniest a part of the sport” has been teased (probably referring to the debut trailer). The dimensions “is very large,” and followers can “kiss the unique story utterly goodbye.” Given Sephiroth’s newest revelations, that appears a given, but it surely stays to be seen how a lot has modified.
Whereas the trailer showcased giant open areas, it’s apparently not an open world. As a substitute, Rebirth can have zones like Closing Fantasy 16 however “smaller.” The battle system is “nonetheless elegant,” if that wasn’t apparent sufficient already. About 50 % of the sport is “a brand new path if I needed to guess,” and although not “as meta as Remake (which just about actually had followers as these future ghosts), it’s positively a brand new path with plenty of callbacks.”
As with their studies on Closing Fantasy 10 Remake, allegedly releasing in 2026, the insider deleted a number of of posts and closed their Resetera account. It might be attributable to their identification being in danger, however even when they’ve received a number of issues proper, take issues with a grain of salt.
Closing Fantasy 7 Rebirth is unique to PS5 and can ship on two discs. Keep tuned for additional updates.
