Here is Lamsam’s full Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Ultimania summary going over the shared background between Cid and Aerith for the FFVII remake trilogy. The section discussing him and his appearance apparently said he met Aerith and her mother Ifalna at Shinra back when he was with the company.

People can get the Final Fantasy VII Traces of Two Pasts novel in English, should they want to explore its insights into Aerith and Tifa from FFVII Rebirth. It launched in November 2022. There’s no English release window for FFVII Rebirth Ultimania yet, however.

Lamsam’s update also included details about the confirmed age of Cid in FFVII Rebirth. He is 32. We also know how old Cissnei, Elena, Glenn, and Vincent are, as the book revealed their ages or estimated age. 

The book also confirmed work on the third entry in the trilogy is progressing. Tetsuya Nomura said the story is done and voice acting recording could start in the near future. There’s no release window for FFVII remakepart 3 yet.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and its demo are available on the PS5, with the exclusivity arrangement ending on May 29, 2024. FFVII Remake is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and FFVII Ever Crisis is available on the PC and mobile devices. FFVII Rebirth Ultimania is available in Japan.
