Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Creators Want Players to Embrace The Stress

Naoki Hamaguchi, director of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth says players should embrace the stress that comes with the game’s story and how the known events play out. He says the way the game flows and the changes to the canonical storyline has been implemented in such a way that players will have a sense of excitement and anxiety throughout the game.

Speaking to The Verge, Hamaguchi says that when creating Rebirth, the studio was able to portray the game’s world and story in new exciting ways thanks to the technology we have now. He claims that at the time of the game’s original development, storytelling wasn’t limited but sharing how that story is told was.

He continued to discuss the game’s existing storyline saying that if Square Enix followed the story exactly how they remember it, the game wouldn’t offer any excitement. By bringing back Zack, for example, has created a sense of wonder and excitement.

“If the story that we follow for Rebirth is exactly the same, players’ overall excitement would decrease. Zack, for example, was a character who died in the original game. But by bringing him back in the Remake series, we’ve created this sense of wonder and excitement in players that believe perhaps this is something different.”

Hamaguchi also says that players shouldn’t worry about experiencing the spinoffs. He says everything they need to know will be addressed in Rebirth. This includes the story we know and some additional storylines that didn’t appear in the original game.

In short, if you know what happened in the original Final Fantasy VII game, you’ll be happy to know all that happens in Rebirth and more. However, the “more” part has been added to the story to provide more excitement and wonder. Well, according to Square Enix anyway. I still think Zack should be dead but that is just my “stuck-in-the-old-ways” mindset.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is out exclusively on PS5. The game will take you roughly 200 hours to platinum according to a new guide.

    Hmmm i guess if every thing was the exact same like a 1:1 scale then having any potential spoilers for anyone who played the og FF7 would be almost imposable considering they already know the outcome. Having some new content might be kinda nice as long as it’s not affecting the outcome.
