A recreation of the original 1997 RPG, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Lets us revisit more than a few classic local video games. The demo is set in Nibelheim, Cloud’s hometownand it has been beautifully recreatedfeaturing his and Tifa’s home, the Mt. Nibel reactor, and, of course, Shinra Manor.

This version of Shinra Manor is not only a little different from the original, but it’s less explorable this time around (at least during the flashback sequence in the demo, which may or may not change in the final version). Still, there are a couple of little interesting tidbits you might’ve missed as you relived Cloud’s traumatic past.

Rebirth‘s photo mode is a decent way to see some of these details yourself (especially the last one here). Hit the menu button and then press square to enter photo mode. You can zoom in with R2 and using the up and down d-pad, select “Exposure” to brighten the image (some filters might also help). Here are a few of the best details we’ve found while playing the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth demo.
