Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth has a whole lot of mini-games—some would possibly argue it has too many—however one factor we are able to all agree on is that Queen’s Blood, the in-universe card recreation Cloud performs with numerous NPCs, is likely one of the highlights. In truth, the sport has change into such successful that Sq. Enix is open to including extra playing cards to shake issues up in a future replace.

In an interview with Red Bull, Rebirth director Naoki Hamaguchi was requested about the potential of increasing Queen’s Blood by means of DLC. Whereas concrete plans could not have been in place on the time of the interview, it feels like some enlargement is on the desk.

“We haven’t determined something when it comes to future growth for Queen’s Blood, however to date, the media who performed it have supplied very constructive suggestions on it, so we need to take into account additional expansions as a risk,” Hamaguchi stated.

Since Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth is such a mini-game-heavy RPG, a whole lot of these bite-sized detours get misplaced within the noise. Queen’s Blood, nevertheless, has obtained a whole lot of reward for its territory-based spin on the cardboard recreation style. Some of us, together with Kotaku’s personal Willa Rowe, have stated it’s on par with a few of the collection’ most-beloved mini-games, like Ultimate Fantasy VIII’s Triple Triad card recreation.

In an interview with Kotaku, Hamaguchi stated the crew seemed to different card video games like Marvel Snap for inspiration when creating Queen’s Blood, but additionally surprisingly cited Splatoon’s give attention to territory battles as a key affect. When the crew was initially creating the sport, it 3D-printed a bodily model to check it. Sq. can add new playing cards to Rebirth all it desires, however I hope it’s contemplating releasing a bodily model of Queen’s Blood, too, as a result of that 3D-printed board seems sick.
