In the original Final Fantasy VII, Aerith and Cloud’s escape from Shinra across the rooftops of the Sector 5 slums is a minute-long sequence with a few lines of dialogue and a bit of hopping. The Final Fantasy VII Remake turns that fleeting moment into so much more.
As Jason Schreier says in his excellent review , Aerith is one of the most improved aspects of the remake. Between the expanded script and the lovely voice acting of Briana White , she’s evolved from a waifish tagalong character into the dynamic, witty, and playful young woman she was always supposed to be. There’s a subtle, enigmatic air about this Aerith that fits her nature perfectly.
Screenshot: Square Enix (Kotaku) The new rooftop sequence, which you can watch in its wholeety in the video atop this post, is basically a seven-minute walk and talk between Cloud and Aerith. There are no battles or quick-time events. Just two people forming a tangible connection while the player pushes the analog stick about. That’s all it took for me to become completely enamored with this new and improved Aerith.
Before I played this game I was worried that a fully voiced, beautifully rendered Aerith would make the character’s eventual fate hurt much more than it did the first time around . I remain deeply worried.
