So guys be honest with me, Aerith in this remake is going to...you know

Well, they defeated fate, so right now current future is unpredictable, whether she will die or not

I mean, they're changing a lot of things with the Remake, so maybe not?
Not that we'll know for another 20 years, but who knows, y'know?

LOL!!! Aerith gone from a sweet wallflower to reckless beatdown mode! XD

Tifa subconsciously choking the guy while having a gay episode just has me laughing each time I see this pic XD

Would be so funny if they kill off Tifa instead of Aerith this time.

The devs have talked about how they want the remake to more fully represent the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, those being the spin-offs like Advent Children, Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus, and the short stories. Aerith's fate is rather set-in-stone in the sequels, and necessary within the narrative. They're adding stuff, but only for padding and to create more ties to the compilation, which didn't exist when the original game was out.

A similar case would be when the Hobbit films added Legolas. He's from Murkwood, as stated in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but because the Hobbit was written first, he didn't appear in it since he didn't exist yet. But the creators of the Hobbit films had no such excuse, and had to add Legolas by the necessity of continuity. If Aerith's fate is changed, it will throw the entire continuity out of whack, the exact opposite of what the remake is trying to do.

^How does Zack surviving fit into that little thesis of yours? Because I am pretty sure that alters everything and doesn't just tie in compilation stuff.

Been a while since we get a "in love with her destruction". I thought that was a tag here, must be thinking confused of tvtropes.

As far as I know they dont care about this game fitting into a broader narrative- yes because the wider ff7 stuff exists they can and do want to pull from it- it would be silly to pretend the other lore desn't exist- but that doesnt mean ff7 r has to stay 'true' to what happened story wise, if they want to change stuff!

We already have several people alive at this point that either were dead - or we didnt know for sure but assumed to be dead. You can still tell the same story around ANY of them being alive or not- or anyone dying or not going forward..

BUT- not killing Aerith is a really big deal- I dunno if they can do that.. sure she doesn't have to die for plot reasons, it was just such a significant part of the narrative.. But on the other hand- ff games dont follow on from each other- and this being a remake, it doesn't REALLY impact what is meant to have happened in any of the related stuff like CC or AC- you can just say they are spin offs of the OG not this version- this game just benefits from their further lore.

They could even have it optional- or in a DLC, so people could choose themselves if it should be part of their games lore or not that she lives? I feel if they want to make it a possibility, that would be better- like if you go out your way to make it so then its your choice- if you want to be true to the OG then you dont? Certainly back in the day MANY fans wanted to believe their was a hidden way to save her and regularly begged square to change her fate, so its not like they wouldn't have a reason to consider it.

But if you are asking us if we THINK she will still die- I think most people would say they still expect her to yes.

@BugDevil Just because we saw that vision- and that it looks like he survived that fight, doesn't mean for sure thats what it was- but assuming it is- it still doesn't mean he is STILL alive. Aerith has been acting like he isnt the whole game right? not like he's off on holiday somewhere or something.. maybe he died in some later pregame event that we will find out about later that will have some impact on how the future story goes.

^The past was altered after they defeated fate. Therefore the timeline only changed after that. It is meaningless what happened before that point, it only changed NOW.
They handled everything in the final stretch poorly, so I have no hope they will do well in the sequel.

^would be funny if Tifa and Aerith got togheter

KireusG May 3, 2020 12:21AM

^ maybe in the Timeline where Zack Survives and everything is fine

Alphardo May 3, 2020 11:27AM

dude Aeris is the one that saves earth from Meteor she NEEDS to die. i hate that Zack is alive but his death doesn't affect the plot as hard as Aeris'

Every time I hear people discuss FF plots I become more grateful that my brain refuses to retain the details of any of the FF games I've played.

I'm just glad I finished FF7R yesterday before coming to these picture threads. The whole "Aerith dies" is not a spoiler, but wowza on the rest
