Episode 1 of Inside Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is on YouTube now


Square Enix took a page from the Netflix playbook and released all four episodes of Inside Final Fantasy VII Rebirth on YouTube. Each episode is around 15 minutes long and is made up of behind-the-scenes interviews with the game’s developers, composers, artists, and more. Every interview sheds light on the process of creating Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and how they brought this legendary story and its cast of characters to life for a modern audience.

Here are the titles and topics covered in each episode.

Episode 4, in particular, is a great watch for fans in love with the game’s iconic heroes. Most of Cloud’s adventuring entourage is featured with their respective English voice talent, and each provides meaningful insight into their character’s unique inspirations and triumphs. The new kid on the block, Matt Mercer, even gets to retell the wholesome story of his Vincent Valentine casting that he shared back at New York Comic Con 2023. Only this time, there’s actual footage to go along with it.
