“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,” said producer Yoshinori Kitase.

“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.”

“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,” said director Naoki Hamaguchi.

“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.”

“For many years, I wondered what a remake of Final Fantasy VII could look like,” said creative director Tetsuya Nomura. “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.”

Nomura continued: “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.”

The Final Fantasy VII remake project began when Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was released in 2020 to universal acclaim from players and critics around the globe. After earning more than 20 perfect scores from media and being selected as a PlayStation “Editor’s Choice” pick, Final Fantasy VII Remake became the highest-selling digital release on the PlayStation platform in Square Enix‘s history, exceeding more than seven million shipments and digital sales worldwide since its release.
