Final Fantasy VII Remake enriches the FF7 universe with a host of new background details and scenes. The flashbacks are especially interesting for fans. Some we know – especially the Cloud and Tifa scene in Nibelheim – but others are completely new.
This includes scenes with Aerith. Square Enix has now published some new artwork on Twitter, featuring young Aerith and her mother Ifalna. in the Final Fantasy VII Remake material Ultimania* As always, we learn more about the photos.
“This is from the time when Aerith and Ifalna were held in the Shinra building. While the two share many sad memories, I also wanted to show some of the beautiful moments they must have shared as mother and daughter,” says environmental artist Mizushi Sugawara.
A nice detail on this artwork is the yellow flower. One such flower is later given to Cloud by Aerith during their first memorable meeting in Midgar. We see Aerith at the age of 7 years. In her blue dress. During a cutscene at the railway cemetery, we see her “Orange Dress”.
“This is the young Aerith we see in the flashbacks. The blue and orange dresses are designed so that we can switch from one to the other by swapping out a few elements,” said character designer Roberto Ferrari.
For the little red bow there is the Final Fantasy VII Remake material Ultimania*By the way, this tip: “If the outfit needs some color or an accent, add a fabric decoration (for example, wool or knitwear).”
In Final Fantasy VII Remake, Aerith is an adult. By the way, in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion you meet her as a teenager and learn even more about her. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will be released in Germany on December 13, 2022 for all current platforms. At Amazon you can currently still the exclusive Steelbook edition* save to remaster.
