Vincent & Cid Will Act as Accompanying Characters In Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

    Saved for Part 3 of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Project.

    During an interview with Dengeki Online, Tetsuya Nomura has confirmed that both Cid and Vincent will act as “accompanying characters” in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. In other words, the two will not be playable in this game. They will be saved to become playable in part three of the Final Fantasy VII remake project.

    This shouldn’t be a surprise to fans, especially after the tease of Vincent in last week’s trailer. The team has confirmed Cait Sith, Yuffie, and Red XIII to all be new playable party members in Rebirth. Vincent and Cid will act in the same vein as Red XIII in Final Fantasy VII Remake, where he was part of the party but not playable. Seven of the nine party members being playable is extremely exciting for any fan of the original.

    Discover a vibrant and vast world in this standalone entry in the Final Fantasy VII remake project.

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the second entry in the Final Fantasy VII remake project, which retells the story of the genre-redefining RPG across three distinct games.

    Iconic heroes Cloud, Barret, Tifa, Aerith and Red XIII have escaped from the dystopian city Midgar and are now in pursuit of Sephiroth, the vengeful swordsman from Cloud’s past who was thought to be dead.

    This new adventure can be enjoyed by all players, even those who have yet to play Final Fantasy VII Remake or the PlayStation original. Expect a new standard of cinematic storytelling, fast-paced combat and rich exploration across a vast world.

    When Is the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Release Date?

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch exclusively for PlayStation 5 on February 29, 2024. The game will not come to other platforms for some time after launch.
