Cosmo Canyon. Nibelheim. Dolphin racing. Vincent Valentine. A one-winged Sephiroth. Marlene’s dad Dyne. Mini-game after mini-game after mini-game to play. “The world shall be saved, however will you?” asks the sport’s trailer, with nearly zero subtlety that the occasions of this recreation will decide Aerith’s notorious destiny.
Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth is coming February twenty ninth, and each Sony and Sq. Enix need to make rattling positive that followers know this recreation is a can’t-miss occasion — regardless that it’s not the conclusion to the remake of Ultimate Fantasy VII and may have one other recreation following it.
However as an enormous fan of the unique PS1 title who initially held out on taking part in Remake for that purpose, I’ve gotta say the 15-plus minutes of video that Sony and Sq. Enix launched at present depart me fairly excited. An enormous world map with all these areas and mini-games and moments I keep in mind! New companions and tag-team assaults like Cait Sith spinning round with Cloud’s sword! Classic blocky characters! 400 newly recorded items of Ultimate Fantasy music! 4K graphics or 60fps, with higher-resolution property than Remake due to the PS5’s SSD!
Did they actually cram this a lot right into a single recreation? I suppose we’ll see in three weeks — or possibly beginning today now that a playable demo has arrived. Then once more when Sq. Enix updates that demo to incorporate a number of the Junon area!
They’re working onerous to persuade us.
