Featured Video

Fans anxiously awaiting the release of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth, an addition that has been revealed, may excite you even more for the title. The enigmatic and brooding Vincent Valentine will return in the remake, playing an important “accompanying character” role.


Even if he doesn’t occupy a main place in the protagonist group like Red XIII in Remake, his fans can look forward to interactions in the plot that will be remembered by the Vincent lovers.

Vincent Valentine Will Return In Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth To The Delight Of Fans

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Brings Back Fan-Favourite Character
Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is on its way and has more news.

The new Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth trailer revealed for the first time that Vincent Valentine, the red-caped pseudo-vampire, will be joining the game’s fray. However, the developers arrived to clarify that his participation will be similar to that of Red XIII in the remake. In an interview with IGN, the director himself, Naoki Hamaguchi, said:


In terms of whether or not Vincent will be a playable character, he will be more of an accompanying character to the party in terms of Rebirth. So this will be similar to how Red XIII was in Remake.

The statement indicates that Vincent will not be directly playable in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth but rather a member of the main group. In, Red XIII, the red lion or wolf-like beast followed the same profile, joining the heroes in the middle of the story and continuing to fight alongside them; however, he was not controllable in battle or had exchangeable equipment.

This can be frustrating, but playing as Vincent isn’t completely out of the question, as Red XIII is now playable in, making Valentine’s “promotion” possible in the future.

Vincent Valentine has been popular and well-liked since the original version of Final Fantasy 7, where he had a different play style and was an optional member who joined the group on his vengeance mission during their passage on Nibelheim.

Therefore, his appearance in the recent Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth trailer was an exciting revelation, as Vincent is one of the most classic characters in the saga and even had his own spin-off game, Dirge of Cerberus, from 2006 for PlayStation 2.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is developed and published by Square Enix as a sequel to 2020’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake and the second in the trilogy of games remade from Final Fantasy 7, originally released in 1997. Like its predecessor, the gameplay will combine real-time action with elements of strategy and roleplay. Shortly after the events of Remake, players control Cloud Strife and his group, who join together to prevent the megacorporation Shinra from exploiting the essence of life as a source of energy, defeating the former elite soldier, Sephiroth.

Rebirth began production in November 2019, even before the release of Remake, and was officially announced in June 2022. Most of the development team moved from one title to the next, except for Tetsuya Nomura, who returned as creative director instead of director, and Naoki Hamaguchi and Motomu Toriyama, who returned as directors instead of co-directors.
