Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth: Developers Reveal Whether Some Characters May Return From The Dead!

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth developer Tetsuya Nomura promises that anyone who dies during the game’s plot will not be revived later, just like in the original. WARNING! This article contains spoilers for Final Fantasy 7!



Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth raises the stakes for its heroes in a big way. Because Tetsuya Nomura stated that whoever dies in the second chapter will disappear forever. Final Fantasy 7 Remake expanded and changed the story of the beloved 1997 original. Based on pre-release promotional materials, it looks like the upcoming sequel will continue to do so. FF7 Rebirth picks up where the previous game left off. Cloud Strife and the rest of Team Avalanche leave the city of Midgar after fighting Sephiroth and defeating the timeline-controlling Whispers of Fate.

Defeating Whispers has significant implications for the next chapter of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake trilogy, such as changing the fate of characters who fell earlier in the original timeline.

Zack Fair, who was shot by Shinra forces in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7, is revealed to be alive at the end of FF 7 Remake. While a member of Avalanche, Biggs survives the destruction of Sector 7 and seeks revenge for his fallen comrades in Rebirth. Other supporting characters, such as Jesse Rasberry, apparently escaped their original death. But anyone else hoping to avoid the Reaper may be out of luck.

FF7 Rebirth creative director Tetsuya Nomura recently gave an interview to Game Informer. He talked about various aspects of the game, such as Rebirth’s new explorable locations. During the interview, Nomura suggested that Rebirth will feature permanent character death, just like the original game. “I believe that loss is something that happens unexpectedly, and it’s not something that’s dramatic or drawn out, but is something in which a person you have just conversed with is suddenly gone and never to come back,” he said.

“I believe that the person who dies should not return in this title, and that is what we did with the original.”

Nomura did not specify who might die at the end of FF7 Rebirth. Many fans naturally assume that the game will end with the tragic death of Aerith Gainsborough. In a previous interview, Nomura confirmed that FF7 Rebirth will end in the Forgotten Capital. In the place where Aerith died in the second act of the original Final Fantasy 7. Also, the ESRB rating for FF7 Rebirth mentions that a character gets stabbed. This is the same as how Sephiroth finished off Aerith years ago.

However, it is also worth noting that Final Fantasy 7 Remake has already changed the timeline of the original game to a great extent, and instead of Aerith, another FF7 main character may die.

For example, some fans believe that Tifa could be the one to be killed by Sephiroth. Because the newer trailers of FF7 Rebirth put more emphasis on it. Whoever meets a horrible end in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth won’t be resurrected, and that’s likely to make things even more tragic when the game launches on February 29th.
