Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth was showcased in a recent State of Play event, providing a closer look at the game. The showcase revealed new details about the story, combat, and the presence of mini-games, including familiar ones returning from the original game and new additions. One of the mini-games featured was a brief glimpse of Fort Condor, which appeared to be more fleshed out than before and included adorable PS1 skins for characters like Cloud, Tifa, and Barrett.
The game’s expanded second chapter was briefly explored, teasing the potential involvement of Cloud and the gang in the Fort Condor mini-game. There were also hints at the presence of PS1 skins for characters like Cait Sith and a focus on alternative clothing options. The State of Play showcase featured various outfit options, and the possibility of players being able to run around in PS1 skins in the game.
A notable highlight from the presentation was a demo announcement, allowing players to experience a portion of the game ahead of its February 29 launch. The demo offered the opportunity to play as either Cloud or Sephiroth in the Nibelheim episode. This allowed fans to get a taste of the game’s mechanics and characters before its official release.
