For those out of the loop, Vincent Valentine is one of the most well-known characters in the Final Fantasy series, first making his appearance in the original Final Fantasy 7 back in 1997, as an optional party member. He was the main protagonist of the 2006 shooter Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy 7 (and its mobile phone tie-in). This was the first and only time fans got to play as the iconic character. But it was not his last appearance in the series as he appeared in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (initially as a boss). Now Square Enix has announced that he'll finally return as a playable character in Ever Crisis in Chapter 7 of the game, due for release in July.

This is certainly big news in the Final Fantasy community as Vincent Valentine has become a beloved character in the series. His iconic red cloak attire as well as his unique abilities are just some of the reasons fans of the series fell in love with him. In Ever Crisis, Vincent will look more like his character in Dirge of Cerberus and Advent Children according to Tetsuya Nomura. Since Ever Crisis is based on the various FF7 titles, chances are we'll get to witness the events of Dirge of Cerberus with a new and improved coat of paint.

Alongside Vincent Valnetine's announcement, Ever Crisis will have a collaboration with Capcom's Monster Hunter series. This collaboration is set to launch on May 30 and will have new attires for Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, and others.
