Final Fantasy VII Rebirth ESRB Rating Suggests Costa del Sol Will Be Ripe With “Bodacious Beach Bods”
New Final Fantasy VII Rebirth details have emerged online thanks to the game’s ESRB rating, which also suggests how Costa del Sol may be hotter than expected in the second entry in the series.
While the ESRB rating summary doesn’t exactly reveal much that was unknown or unexpected (a character getting impaled with a sword shouldn’t be any surprise for anyone who played the original), it has revealed some suggestive dialogues (“Just admit it. You’re obviously captivated by my bodacious beach bod.”) accompanied by close-ups of characters’ bodies and outfits. As the mention of the beach seems to hint at this dialogue happening in Costa del Sol, it will be interesting to see who will be the character that will say this line.
While not much is currently known about Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, we saw the game in action a few weeks back. The shared footage confirmed that Sephiroth will be fully playable during the famous flashback sequence while also showing how much bigger the world will feel compared to Remake.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth launches on PlayStation 5 on February 29th, 2023. You can learn more about the game by checking out Kai’s hands-on preview.
Plenty of points of interest fill the map surrounding the fields of Junon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, leading to rare and notorious monster encounters that provide currencies to build out World Intel when various objectives are completed (typically staggering or beating an enemy in a certain amount of time or a more specific objective such as defeating a flying enemy before it can take to the skies during one of its attacks). Colorful background dialogue is provided by an unseen NPC named MAI, who’s new to the story. MAI helps provide some interesting lore about the beasts Cloud is about to hunt for sport. While there’s an outstanding bounty on the heads of AVALANCHE (all five members still at large, including Biggs and Jessie), the major/sheriff of Junon isn’t about to turn the group in for a quick payout. The demo ends with a chance encounter with Yuffie about to become dinner for a monstrous fish known as the Terror of the Deep, culminating in a final boss fight and some humorous hijinks between Cloud and the first encounter with Mr. Dolphin.
