Despite the fact that Final Fantasy XVI is out in just a couple of weeks, Square Enix has been bombarding us with new Final Fantasy VII Rebirth news. The anticipated sequel ended up being the closer to Summer Game Fest Live, and we saw a lot more of the game than we thought we would at this point.

The new trailer shows actual gameplay — in what seem to be somewhat open environments — new playable characters like Red XIII, what looked like a slightly adjusted battle system, and more. We also have an updated release window: 'Early 2024'. We told you it wouldn't be out this year!
