Towards the end of next year we can expect the release of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth. This is the sequel to Final Fantasy 7 Remake, in which protagonist Cloud Strife will once again wield his oversized Buster Sword.

Many fans take the release of the second part as an opportunity to play through the first remake again and refresh their memory of the story. An ambitious fan didn’t want to play through Final Fantasy 7 Remake the normal way and came up with something strange.

The second part of the Final Fantasy 7 remake series is scheduled for release in late 2023 for PS5. In addition to Cloud and Sephiroth, Zack should also play a bigger role. This recently got its own game with Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion. Our test reveals whether you should have played the title.

In contrast to its predecessor, the title will only be released for PS5, but not for PS4 and PC. It’s possible that the PS5 release will only be some time exclusive, but that remains to be seen.
