Expectations are through the roof, and hardcore fans are beginning to wonder what the changes will be you will get the story. For better or worse, it seems that there will be a lot of new things.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth could move away from the story of the original game, according to insider
Through a post on the ResetEra forum, insider Im A Hero Too revealed that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will deviate from the original game and feature differences in narrative. For example, he commented that Jack Fair will be a playable character for a large part of the campaign.
Without giving many more details about it, the informant assured that the scale of the video game is enormous and that what is seen in the trailer is only a small part. Of course, he advanced to the fans that “they can completely say goodbye to the original story”, which suggests that there will be significant changes.
Finally, Im A Hero Too pointed out that 50% of the game follows a new direction, although it seems that there will also be references to the original work from 1997.

Last year, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth producer Yoshinori Kitase teased that the game will not change “the axis of the story” from the original title, suggesting that the fates of key characters and moments remain intact. Of course, he anticipated that there will be news.
Also, co-director Motomu Toriyama suggested that the game could have major changes, recently promising that you won’t need to play the first part of the remake to understand this new experience. With this in mind, how the creative team approached and adapted the story of this early PlayStation classic is a mystery.
Im A Hero Too was one of the users who leaked the first details of Persona 3 Reload, which gives truth to his words. He also indicated that Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy IX will have remakes. Even so, we reiterate that this information is not confirmed by Square Enix, so we recommend taking it with reservations.
