Here is the full exchange, which includes Blum’s brief response.

While Blum won’t play Vincent Valentine in FFVII Rebirth, he did voice the character in both a game and movie. He played him both Dirge of Cerberus: FFVII and FFVII Advent Children. He’s also voiced a number of other Final Fantasy characters over the years. Most recently, he was Ramuh in Chocobo GP. However, he was also Verstael Besithia in FFXV and Cid in FF Type-0. He’s also known as Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, Toru Higashi in both Judgment and Lost Judgment, and Orochimaru in Naruto.

It is uncertain if the character will appear in FFVII Rebirth. Square Enix didn’t note which portions of the original story will appear in this second part. The first only tackled events in Midgar. He didn’t show up in the initial trailer.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, which is part 2 in the Remake trilogy, will appear on the PS5 in Winter 2023.
