The official Japanese Final Fantasy VII Remake Twitter account often shares early development artwork for the game. The latest instance of this practice has showcased concept illustrations of the main character, Tifa Lockhart, as a child.
The first collective artwork highlights several designs the team had in mind, which all have different clothing options—however, the design the team ultimately chose is what can be seen on the right below. While this younger form of Tifa isn’t exactly a prominent character throughout Final Fantasy VII Remake, it’s neat to see other ideas for how she could have looked.
You can view the Final Fantasy VII Remake Tifa concept illustrations below:
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the sequel to the first entry in this ongoing Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy effort. This new entry is far more ambitious than the first, set to occur until The Forgotten Capital from the original game.
Players can look forward to playable Cait Sith and Red XIII, with Vincent also revealed, though not extensively. Gold Saucer will be a prominently featured location with plenty of minigames.
Speaking of, the Junon infiltration minigame has been significantly enhanced, with Cloud directing soldiers to form specific compositions. Further, Sephiroth will be playable during the Nibelheim flashback. Combat has undergone a shakeup, with new synergy attacks utilizing multiple party members, and Red XIII has a unique revenge gauge mechanic.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch for PlayStation 5 on February 29, 2024, on two discs.
Pre-ordering the game digitally will grant the Moogle Trio Summoning Materia. Further, carrying over save data from Final Fantasy VII Remake will give the Leviathan Summon Materia, while carrying over save data from the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Yuffie episode will grant the Ramuh Summon Materia.
