Recent information suggests that there will be four different versions of Sephiroth in Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Since the launch of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Ultimania book, a deluge of information has been made available to fans online. Recently, one particular book owner took to ResetEra in order to share information about Sephiroth – or more specifically, about how there’s four versions of him in Remake.
“Sephiroth’s page is interesting,” the post begins. “They briefly explain 19 scenes he appears in, categorizing Sephiroth’s ‘true form’ for each scene into 4 types.” You can see the four types below, which appear exactly as they originally did in the ResetEra post.
幻: an illusion that only Cloud can see.
黒マント: black-hooded figures that are seen as Sephiroth.
回想: recollection, Sephiroth of the past.
?: a question mark explained as Sephiroth that can be seen by others beside Cloud and is not one of the black-hooded men. This question mark Sephiroth is the one that appears at the end of the Midgar Expressway during the end of the game.
As you can see, all four versions of Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Sephiroth are drastically different from one another, implying that the villain’s role will be even more multifaceted than it originally was.
Again, these aren’t the only details about the future of Final Fantasy 7 Remake that have recently come to light since the launch of the Ultimania. For one thing, Final Fantasy 7 Remake director Tetsuya Nomura has explained that Remake will be released in smaller, more detailed chunks in order to speed up the development process. Meanwhile executive producer Yoshinori Kitase says that Final Fantasy 7’s story will continue as it always has from here on out.
