By all accounts, Final Fantasy VII Remake is looking hugely impressive. We might only be exploring Midgar in the first instalment, but if the whole game is being given the same treatment, we can't wait to see the new takes on our favourite moments from the original. One of those is an early point in the game: the cross-dressing mission.
In the original, Cloud must acquire a dress, a wig, and other accessories in order to disguise himself as a girl. In quite a convoluted plan, the player must do this to try and rescue Tifa from Don Corneo. However, it sounds like Cloud's visit to the Honey Bee Inn will play out a little differently in the remake.
In the latest issue of Famitsu, translated by Gematsu, director Testuya Nomura says the scene will be in the game, but changed for a modern audience. "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…"
Elsewhere in the interview, Nomura discusses a couple of other interesting points. It seems there will be brand new enemies to fight, as well as the watchmen of fate, a new threat that will follow the party around the game. The remake will include all new scenarios, and lots of new dialogue. You can read more through here, if you're interested.
