PSN confirms that a Final Fantasy VII Rebirth demo is coming tomorrow (says it's "out now" but I think the trailer was meant for tomorrow)

Sony’s slip-up occurred on the PlayStation Network, where a 30-second video briefly appeared, summarizing the demo’s content. Although the footage displayed an “Available now” message, the demo has not yet been released.
From the glimpses seen in the video, the demo seems to include a sequence with Cloud and Sephiroth in Nibelheim, focusing on combat, and another segment featuring Cloud and his friends heading towards Junon, offering a taste of exploration and group attacks in the game.
The full release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is eagerly awaited, with the launch date set for February 29. This demo, available after the State of Play broadcast, provides a perfect opportunity for fans to experience a slice of the game before its official release.
