I’m not sure who is voicing Aeris in the remake trailer. She sounds sweet and pleasant. How will that voice react at the end? Will she gasp? Will she cry? Will she utter some last words? Or will she quietly pass in Cloud’s arms as her music swells?


More importantly, will this new death overwrite my memory of the original? Years from now, when I think back on Final Fantasy VII, will I see this?

Or will it be supplanted by however the scene plays out in this new iteration? Whatever the case, Aeris will talk again. Aeris will laugh and cry and get angry. And then she will fall, all over again. I’m not ready.
