đŸ“ē Quality of Life Comes to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

Square Enix has rolled out a significant update for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Not only does it rectify a bug that hindered players from achieving the Platinum Trophy, but it also enhances the battle retry menu. This fix addresses user feedback where the phrase "Retry this battle" misleadingly caused players to restart the entire final boss fight. The updated menu now clearly indicates the option to retry the current phase instead, a much-needed clarification for gamers battling through the game's climactic encounters. A performance patch is also reportedly in development. Curious about the details? Read more on IGN's coverage of the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth patch.
