The Honeybee Inn sequence is one of the most unique in the game, but why has it been changed so much in FF7 Remake?
Final Fantasy 7 Remake allowed fans of the Square Enix adventure to relive those moments they loved so much, but in a whole new guise.
The title has also been updated for PlayStation 5 , with an upgrade and an exclusive DLC that continues the story of this first chapter.
All through an upgrade that has also been made available to those who have redeemed FF7 Remake via PlayStation Plus, for free.
Like every remake, also in this case some changes have been made , one of the most important concerns the Honeybee Inn , which will also affect the second part of the game.
The Wall Market , visited by Cloud and Aerith in the footsteps of Don Corneo, is one of the most exhilarating moments in the game , full of unforgettable and iconic scenes.
Most memorable of all is certainly the duo’s visit to the Honeybee Inn , a glitzy club owned by a certain Andrea Rhodea , owner and showman of a certain caliber.
The manager takes Cloud to the stage dressed as a woman, for an incredible number of dance in perfect rythm game style that culminates with an important message of inclusion .
A sequence changed in FF7 Remake , which he recently talked about in a special interview published by the Square-Enix website . Why has this part of the game been changed?
Given how famous the cross-dressing was in the original FINAL FANTASY VII, we were aware that people would have high expectations for the remake. We knew we had to do it in a way that both lived up to those expectations, but took modern sensibilities into consideration.
For example, fans these days expect stories and dialogue in games to go beyond stereotypical depictions of gender. Through Andrea’s lines and the lyrics of the backing track, Stand Up, we tried to build in a positive and supportive message for Cloud during his cross-dressing scene.
The idea, therefore, was to represent Rhodea’s character in a more modern way , giving him nuances that are more in step with the times.
A step so important and appreciated , in any case, that the modders made sure that Cloud was always dressed that way.
Final Fantasy VII Remake has recently arrived on PC.
