How long is Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth?

By expanding the Midgar section of Final Fantasy 7 into an entire game, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth finally takes us beyond the walls into the world beyond. This much larger swath of land to explore begs the question of just how big this game will be. Between all the open-world tasks, sidequests, and minigames awaiting in the Gold Saucer, could this game really be a 100-hour experience as was claimed? What if you just tried to focus on the main story to see what has or hasn’t changed? We’ve played through the entirety of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth and can give you a good idea of just how long it will take you to reach this chapter’s conclusion.

Note: We will not be spoiling any story details, but will list how many chapters there are.

If you were to simply complete the main storyline of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth with as little optional content as possible, it would take you around 45 to 50 hours to complete all 14 chapters. Unless you’re already adept at the game and its systems, and are willing to minmax your team for any tough encounter, you probably won’t be able to plow through the main story without grinding or doing a few sidequests to level up your party.

In our experience, while taking a balanced approach and tackling a good amount of side content while going through the game, we spent about 60 to 70 hours with the game. That’s the range most players should expect.

For completionists, now we’re talking 100-plus hours. There aren’t an overwhelming number of sidequests, but the open-world tasks, VR missions, minigames, and more will easily push you into the triple digits.

How long is Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth?
Ichiban, Nanba, and Adachi strutting.

Prior to launch, Masayoshi Yokoyama, the head of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, made bold claims about just how much time players would spend in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.Yokoyama claimed that "if you attempt to clear everything, it may never end." Obviously, that was hyperbole, but just how much content really is in the game? The series is known for its lengthy, narratively rich main campaigns, dozens of substories, and deep mini-games such as Dondoko Island. Now that we've had a chance to see the conclusion to Ichiban and friends' latest adventures through the tropical island of Hawaii, we can fill you in on how many hours you can expect to put into this title.
How long is Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth?

Because of how much optional content there is in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, this answer will vary based on what you are interested in. To start off simply, however, we can speak about just doing the main campaign. You won't be able to just mainline the story here without hitting a wall where you just won't be strong enough to progress, but if you do as little optional content as possible, you can expect to put in 45 hours or more to complete it. This game is very cutscene-heavy, so unless you skip them and ignore the story completely, there's not much you can do to cut down on that hour count.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Zack carrying Cloud toward Midgar.

We all knew Final Fantasy 7 Remake was just the beginning, but we had no idea how long we would have to wait for the next part or even how many parts this incredibly ambitious project would end up spanning. Since fans have been begging Square Enix to remake what is quite possibly the most popular and most important JRPG of all time for years, there was obviously a lot of pressure on the studio to get it right. While there was plenty of skepticism regarding the first part changing so much about the core formula, once we had it in our hands, it became almost universally praised.

After Remake, there was next to no news on when Cloud and his ragtag team's adventure would continue. That is, not until the 25th anniversary of the original PlayStation 1 game when Square Enix dropped a ton of info on us all at once. The biggest news was obviously the official reveal of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, the second part in what we now know to be a trilogy of titles. Since then, we've collected all the info drops as they've occurred. Here's everything we know about Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
