Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Wins First Award
This award is handed to the most anticipated title of next year. With such a heavy slate of exciting 2024 titles, it’s amazing to see so many people excited for the next chapter in the long-awaited FFVII Remake Project.
Rebirth, which is set to release on February 29, is the sequel to 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake. It is the second entry in the Remake Project, a collection of three games recreating and reimagining the story and world of Final Fantasy VII. Almost four years later, it will take players outside of Midgar for the very first time. Iconic locations such as Cosmo Canyon and Junon will be fully explorable as you hunt down the malicious Sephiroth.
