Final Fantasy 7 Remake gets a bizarre dialogue change days before Rebirth launch

We're just days away from the launch of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, but bizarrely, a new patch has been released for the 2020 Final Fantasy VII Remake, which completely alters some dialogue options for some strange reason.

Square Enix didn't make any announcement or hint that the patch was coming, and the scope of it's changes is limited, but the one huge change is the final line from Aerith - she now says "this sky... I don't like it" instead of the original line, "I miss it, the steel sky."

The reason for this change is entirely unknown, although some fans speculate that the meaning of the original line may have been unclear, with the character seemingly missing Midgar, rather than the friends she has lost - this theory is backed up by an interview with the series creative director Tetsuya Nomura, who stated as much in this blog post.

The new line is also apparently closer in translation to the original Japanese dialogue, but despite this, many fans are lamenting the change, with the original line being an integral part of the English version of the dialogue for so long.

There's one other change in the patch: Tifa's cowboy outfit in the prequel section of the game has been modified so that it now has a black shirt, meaning it more closely matches the outfit that will be seen in Rebirth.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be released in just a few day's time, on February 29th, but spotting these changes seems like a way to pass some time while you wait.
