The gaming world is buzzing with excitement as Square Enix teases a glimpse into the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, specifically showcasing the Junon Parade march minigame. This sneak peek has left fans eagerly dissecting every detail, trying to uncover how this iconic scene will be reimagined in the remake.
In the original Final Fantasy VII, the Junon Parade march was a memorable moment, where players had to blend in with Shinra soldiers, marching to the beat and aiming for high television ratings.
The better your performance, the higher the ratings, and the more rewards you could earn. A box in the bottom left corner of the screen would provide real-time feedback on Cloud’s performance, adding an extra layer of engagement to the minigame.
The teaser for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth reveals a fresh take on this classic scene. The perspective has shifted, with Cloud now positioned at the back of the group rather than at the front.
The scoring signal is notably absent from the screen, and a new menu appears on the right, offering two different tools for players to utilize, possibly for changing formation or making other strategic decisions.
A Side-by-Side Comparison
Square Enix’s teaser provides a side-by-side comparison of the original and remake versions of the Junon Parade march, allowing fans to directly contrast the two and speculate on how the minigame will be integrated into the narrative of Rebirth.
While the teaser doesn’t give away any specific details about the gameplay mechanics, it has certainly succeeded in ramping up the anticipation for the game’s release.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is set to launch on PS5 on February 29, 2024, with exclusivity ending on March 29, 2044. Following this period, fans can expect the game to become available on Xbox One and PC, opening up the experience to a wider audience.
