Here’s Why Tifa Had Leather Gloves in FFVII Remake Chapter 3

According to a development diary tweet for FFVII Remake, the team had to implement a change to Tifa’s gloves in a Chapter 3 cutscene. This is the scene in which Tifa makes a cocktail for Cloud when they visit Seventh Heaven together. In the scene, Tifa is wearing Leather Gloves no matter what she might equip beforehand.

If the player had equipped the Mythril Claws onto Tifa, she will still wear them in this cutscene. However, the development team realized something. They have such an impressive aura that they can alter the mood of the whole scene. For reference, Tifa makes two cocktails for Cloud, with Cloud complimenting her second one. Afterwards, Tifa chuckles out of embarrassment.

However, the development team worried that the Mythril Claws would give off such intensity that the meaning of Tifa’s laugh would change. So no matter what, Tifa will always wear Leather Gloves in this FFVII Remake Chapter 3 scene, so as to preserve the atmosphere of her conversation with Cloud.

FFVII Remake came out in 2020 and is the first of a trilogy of games that would remake the 1997 classic Final Fantasy VII. While not part of this trilogy, a remake of the FFVII prequel, Crisis Core, is in development. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will come out on December 13, 2022 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. There are currently no plans to remake or remaster FFVII Before Crisis or Dirge of Cerberus.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is available for the PS4. The enhanced version, FFVII Remake Intergrade, is available for the PS5 and Windows PC.
