Square Enix Talks About Aerith’s Future Memories in FFVII Remake

Square Enix shared new details about Aerith and Cloud’s first encounter in Final Fantasy VII Remake. It goes over how Aerith knew that Cloud was ex-SOLDIER and a mercenary, and her strange memories of the future. Throughout all of FFVII Remake, Aerith seems to know things that haven’t happened yet. The company explained this is because of strange memories that she has that the Whispers are trying to take away from her.

The answer revealed that, in FFVII Remake, Aerith possesses vague memories that she shouldn’t have of future events that haven’t happened yet. Because of this, she knows some things about Cloud and the others before meeting them.

When Aerith calls Cloud a jack-of-all-trades (or mercenary), she is doing so unintentionally because of one of these memories she has, as she somehow “remembered” this about Cloud. Additionally, during the course of the game, every time one of the Whispers touches her, they are taking some of these memories away from her.
