Today, on June 16, Square Enix ran a livestream event to celebrate Final Fantasy 7’s 25th Anniversary. They showcased numerous games, the most notable ones being Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7: Reunion.
The event was brief, yet Square Enix managed to pack in quite a bit of content. In total, five games were covered, and they even added in some extra goodies for die-hard fans.
Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth (Remake Part Two)
Fans have finally been given what they’ve been waiting for at today’s Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary celebration. Final Fantasy 7: Remake Part Two was finally showcased, and it’s been named Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth. The game was given a release window of winter, 2023 and will be launched on the PS5. Though the plot seems a little confusing given that the trailer focused on Zack Fair, who is supposed to have died at the end of Crisis Core, everything will be clearer in due time.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7: Reunion
Not only did Square Enix announce a Remake of Crisis Core, but the game will be coming to us this winter. Even better, it will be released on the Xbox Series X and S, PS5, PS4, Switch, and PC, so everyone will be able to enjoy it. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7: Reunion will be a prequel to the original Final Fantasy 7.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade
Today’s livestream included a trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade, as it will be officially coming to Steam on June 17, 2022. In even better news, the game will be compatible with the Steam Deck, so you’ll be able to play it on the go.

Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis
Ever Crisis is another mobile game showcased during the livestream today. We can see the turn-based combat, which looks similar to the original Final Fantasy 7’s gameplay.
