When it comes out, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will pick up right where FF7 Remake, the first part of the planned trilogy, left off after the events in Midgar, with Cloud Strife and his pals continuing their new adventure.
There are a lot of stories to be covered in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, but given what happened in Remake, there’s a good chance it will be drastically different from the original. If this is the case, the altered history could allow for cameos in later games in the massive JRPG series that nobody saw coming.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake was a huge hit for Square Enix. It was a daunting endeavor to remake one of the most cherished video games of all time from scratch, and failure may have tarnished the original’s reputation. However, this did not occur, and the game was well-received since it successfully balanced being faithful to the original with updating it for a modern audience.
Rebirth will aim to improve upon this, and with so much of Final Fantasy 7’s story still untold, it has a great deal of potential to go above and beyond its forerunner while offering a fresh take on the events.
