Square Enix Says You Don’t Need To Play Final Fantasy 7 Remake Before Rebirth

Motuma Toriyama’s statement that the sequel to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is not a remake of 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake. 

Square Enix, the official Final Fantasy VII twitter account, and Square Enix themselves began to release new information about the sequel last week. They answered one question every day. Rebirth was “progressing seamlessly” according to the first day. The excitement of Day 3 and Day 2 was less intense, with hints that the players would have an exciting experience. “high degree of freedom, experiencing a myriad of different stories”The players “will witness a chain of narrative events that lie at the very heart of the Final Fantasy VII story.” 

The question for Day 4 is: Does Final Fantasy VII Remake have to be played to appreciate Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. And here’s Toriyama’s answer: “No – we have made preparations so that players who did not get a chance to play the first game can fully enjoy Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.” 

Rebirth may feature a minimovie or introductory scene that recaps the story of the original game, but time will only tell.

Rebirth will be released this winter. However, an official date of release has yet to be announced. Square Enix has been teasing that the daily QA for Final Fantasy 7 will conclude on day 7, or this Thursday. It’s the day of Geoff Keighley Summer Game Fest, so we might see some Rebirth footage or learn when this game will be released.
