Final Fantasy 7 Remake Seemingly Cut a Scenario All About Tifa

A whole bunch of new information about Final Fantasy VII Remake has been hitting the internet thanks to the Japanese release of the book Final Fantasy VII Remake Material Ultimania, which contains loads of production materials, interviews, and more related to the development of the game. According to a translation from the book, there was even a whole special mission/chapter about Tifa that ended up cut.

The translation, by Aitai Kuji founder and CEO Audrey Lamsam, details a whole bunch of different information about the scenario that was eventually left on the cutting-room floor. Broadly speaking, it seems like the content would have taken place immediately prior to the Don Corneo mission and shown Tifa's side of the story up to that point. You can check out the translated bits below:

Here's how Square Enix describes Final Fantasy VII Remake on its official website, if you're somehow not familiar:

"In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him."


Final Fantasy VII Remake is now available for PlayStation 4. It's currently unclear exactly how many games the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be comprised of, as it's known that it will be releasing in distinct chunks. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the title right here.
