Director of upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake Tetsuya Nomura revealed a little more about the storyline and certain events in the game as well as confirming the original Honey Bee Inn scene.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake to Have Honey Bee Inn Scene Plus New Events
In an interview in the latest issue of Famitsu (translated in an article on Gematsu), Nomura confirmed that the Honey Bee Inn scene will very much be a part of the remake but with a modern update.
The Honey Bee Inn cross-dressing event is still in. We’ve made it more modern. If we made the facility like we did in the original game, the physical unease would be staggering, so that was no good…
If you were wondering what the mystical dark mist that appeared in the trailer, Nomura has also shared a little of what these phantoms which are a new addition to the game:
The watchmen of fate (the black mist in the trailer) are mysterious beings that appear before the party wherever they go. I hope that even those who have played the original game will enjoy the new elements.
While the main story will generally stay the same, there will be new scenes and events that have been added, this also includes new enemies and different scenarios.
There are quite a few additions to the scenario. While the main story itself hasn’t changed, there are a countless number of new events. Otherwise we wouldn’t have two Blu-ray discs. (Laughs.)
But it’s not just the additions of content that were introduced to the remake, even the design Tifa has changed due to the Square Ethics department that wanted a more “athletic” physique:
We wanted Tifa to have abs, so she has an athletic body type. The ethics department at Square Enix also told us that we had to tighten her chest as not to get unnatural during all the intense action. From there we got the black underwear and fitted tank top.
One of the major changes for the upcoming remake is the amount of dialogue, according to the article this has increased dramatically due to the number of responses they had to create which will depend on your choices in conversations.
There are quite a bit of dialogue options. We are making it so the dialogue changes depending on your response, so the sheer volume of dialogue has increased.
From what we saw at the Square Enix presentation at E3 2019 this year, the game has gained some new additions and looks to be an exciting new remake.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on Playstation 4 on March 3rd 2020.
