The trailer for ‘FF7 Rebirth’ reveals a shocking truth about the remake trilogy

Square Enix host a 25th anniversary stream last week for Final Fantasy VII. Tonight’s first big message came with the revelation Crisis core would get a remake this winter. The drop-the-mic moment, however, came at the end of the short stream when a trailer for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was shown. The sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake seems to push the meta-story about this remake project even further, and clues hidden in the trailer reveal that this project has always been bigger than just a remake. The only difference is that Square Enix has finally begun to embrace a truth that has always been the case in retrospect.

The FF7 Remake The series is actually a sequel trilogy.

In the revelation Trailer says Cloud, “You were here with me 5 years ago. Where are you? What happened to you?” He speaks (perhaps rhetorically) to Zack FairTHE SOLDIER who was by Cloud’s side before appearing back in Midgar before the original FF7 as well as FF7 Remake. Cloud who finally remembers Zack is an integral part of the original character development for Cloud, something that does not happen until much later in the game. For a long time in the game, Cloud has memory loss and accidentally remembers some of Zack’s experiences as his own.

After Cloud and Zack are experimented with by Hojo, they are confronted by a large group of Shinra soldiers before re-entering the city of Midgar. This is where the stories begin to diverge and play off each other. In the original, Zack dies in a battle to protect Cloud. In the end of Remake, but the same scene takes place. Zack is still fighting the Shinra soldiers but survives.

This change in fate is only shown to the player after the last match Remakewhich is against Arbiters of Fate, which represents the strict path of the original FF7. Arbitration drives the story Remake as much as possible to follow the original, but with them defeated, anything is possible. The Rebirth the trailer begins with Aerith saying so much: “The future, even if it has been written, can change. So focus on the future, not the past.”

This is where things get complicated, even by Final Fantasy standards. Zack’s history and demise are very much in the past. When both variants of FF7 start, he’s dead. So how can this past event change? Well, because it’s someone’s future.

Tips such as breadcrumbs have been posted FF7 Remake which shows that someone goes through this story with more information than they release, information obtained by living this story earlier as it was intended. The guilty one? Aerith.

In the original FF7, Aerith and Cloud have a passing meeting immediately after the first bomb mission. Not much happens between the two, and they will not meet again until Cloud falls into her church later. During Remake, the two cross the roads as in the original, but this time Aerith Cloud offers a flower. “Lovers used to give these when they were reunited,” she says. Those who play the original will know that Aerith and Cloud have a romantic relationship, although it will never be completely resolved due to tragic circumstances.

This suggests Aerith have some kind of knowledge about her history with Cloud, something she could only know if she had any insight into her previous life as depicted in the original Final Fantasy.

In the same scene, Cloud experiences a hallucination of Sephiroth, something that does not exist in the original. Sephiroth also alludes to the events of the original game and tells Cloud that he “is too weak to save anyone.” Both Aerith and Sephiroth act in a way that suggests knowledge of future events. The Rebirth the trailer asks, “What is Sephiroth’s Endgame?” However, this should be obvious. Cloud even tells Sephiroth’s plan from the original game immediately before this text appears. It seems that Sephiroth is trying to change the course of events rather than just redoing the events that led him to defeat in a previous life.

What connects Aerith and Sephiroth is their connection to the flow of life, the physical essence of the planet itself. It also functions as an afterlife through which human memories return to the planet. Creatures like Aerith and Sephiroth have such a strong connection to the flow of life that they can maintain a certain awareness and influence changes in the physical world. The inciting event for FF7 Remake and its sequel may be part of Sephiroth, which was released in Lifestream at the end of the original Final Fantasy 7 looking for a way to change their destiny.

The stream of life flows through the planet’s core, so it seems possible that those who are powerful enough could go back through the planet’s memories and influence changes in the past. Sephiroth has been known to carry out his plans under one facade in completely different places, so who can say that he could not do the same thing at another time? If so, perhaps Aerith followed Sephiroth into the past to nullify this exact plan.

Leave it to the legendary Tetsuya Nomura to create a sequel that takes place in an alternative past while affecting the story of the original.
