Inside Final Fantasy VII Rebirth – Episode 1: Shaping the World Released

    The open world returns.

    Square Enix and PlayStation have released the first episode of a new series titled Inside Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. A similar series was created for Final Fantasy VII Remake, which dove into the behind-the-scenes development of the title. 

    The first episode of Inside Final Fantasy VII Rebirth focuses on the world and everything that went into capturing the world map. The world map was a staple in Final Fantasy VIIVIII, and IX, but ultimately had to be left behind when the team moved to the PlayStation 2. Now, the developers have brought back the beloved formula with the power of the PlayStation 5.

    The following staff at Square Enix participated in Episode 1:

    • Naoki Hamaguchi – Director
    • Yoshinori Kitase – Producer
    • Tetsuya Nomura – Creative Director
    • Makoto Ise – Sound Director
    • Mitsuto Suzuki – Composer
    • Keiji Kawamori – Music Supervisor
    • Shintaro Takai – Art Director
    • Mizushi Sugawara – Environment Artwork Supervisor
    • Takako Miyake – Environment Director
    • Iichiro Yamaguchi – Lighting Director
    • Hidekazu Miyake – Cutscene Director
    • Junichi Hayashi – Cutscene Co-Director
    • Akira Iwasawa – Facial Director
