Square Enix has given away where Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s climax takes place and it’s a spoiler within a spoiler.

In the wake of the new trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Square Enix has shared a number of additional details that weren’t mentioned, via a roundtable interview with Sony.

One of the main questions was how much of the original game Rebirth will encompass. Final Fantasy 7 Remake only covered the adventures in Midgar and yet that was barely halfway through the first of the three discs in the original game.

That makes it hard to guess where Rebirth will end, given we know the remake will take part over three whole games, and yet the story will increasingly diverge from the original as it continues.

Surprisingly, director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed exactly where Rebirth ends, which seems to imply a major cliffhanger ending.

Firstly, though, he explains, via the PlayStation Blog, that the order certain locations are visited in has been shifted around, so fans shouldn’t expect things to progress as they did in the original game.

For example, Wutai – a prominent locale that featured as part of a side-story in the original – has been excised completely but will make an appearance in the untitled third instalment.

However, before we go any further there’s going to be a lot of spoiler talk regarding Final Fantasy 7 Remake and the original game – involving easily the most famous plot twist in gaming history – so if you want to remain as in the dark as possible, we’d advise not reading any further…

It turns out that Rebirth’s ending takes place in the Forgotten Capital, which in the original was the ending of the first disc.

This area is extremely important, as this is where Final Fantasy 7’s most iconic scene takes place: the death of party member Aerith at the hands of the villainous Sephiroth.

The implication, of course, is that Rebirth ends with this climactic death instead of the summoning of Meteor, which served as the conclusion of the original’s second disc.

This information is clearly meant for long-time fans and a cheeky hint from Nomura. However, it’s important to remember that the Final Fantasy 7 remake project has been set up as more of a pseudo-sequel.
