By Going Back in Time, Final Fantasy Rediscovers What Made it Special

For almost 30 years, Final Fantasy was all about the party; the diverse team of fighters, mages, adventurers, and scoundrels that fought together. Spin-offs and online entries toyed with alternate formulas, but the idea of a group saving the world via turn-based battles was the cornerstone of the mainline series. Until 2016, that is. Final Fantasy 15 saw Square Enix controversially pivot to real-time action combat, and with it we lost direct control of our party allies. By 2023’s Final Fantasy 16 the party was practically eliminated, replaced by an occasional helping hand from an NPC. It’s a shift that’s eroded a vital piece of Final Fantasy’s soul.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is a stellar game, and the bevy of minigames it offers has become one of its most highly praised elements. Even with nearly 30 minigames on offer, however, there’s one in particular that has proven most popular with the game’s player base by far- Queen’s Blood, which is not only an entire, in-depth card collecting and battling game in and of itself, but also comes with an entire storyline revolving around it.

Just as important, the title expanded upon the game’s lore, world, and more to ensure that gamers had the best experience within it. Remember, the original “remake” title was set entirely within Midgar, with the team at Avalanche only getting out of the city after a clash with Sephiroth. However, while the Square Enix team did make the world vast, they ensured that there was still plenty to explore within the next entry, which will finish the story.
