Final Fantasy 7 Remake New Details: Original Events, Honey Bee Inn Cross-Dressing, and More

Tetsuya Nomura reveals even more details for Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

Square Enix is on a media tour for Final Fantasy 7 Remake following its big E3 re-introduction. FF7 Remake director Tetsuya Nomura even recently unveiled more info about the game in a recent interview with the Japanese press.

Speaking with Famitsu, Nomura revealed that even though the first portion of the Remake that's going to get released will only cover the portions that take place in Midgar, there will be side scenes new to the Remake.

In fact, it sounds like even though the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake release will only cover a portion of the full game, there will be enough added to make it feel like a much bigger experience. More dialogue options will be added on top of what was already there before, and Nomura says the sheer overall volume of dialogue has increased.

Original events will also be returning, albeit tweaked a bit. Nomura said that the Honey Bee Inn cross-dressing sequence will still be there, but modernized. Nomura says that if the facility was recreated faithfully "the physical unease would be staggering, so that was no good."

Nomura even addresses some of the online controversy regarding the character designs for Tifa and Aerith by a small online contingent. Nomura says that Tifa was designed to have abs as she is athletic, and that Square Enix's ethics department reigned in her bust size.

We were able to get some hands-on time with Final Fantasy 7 Remake at E3 this year and came away very impressed. Even if the dialogue left something to be desired.
