06/19/2019: "Remake will still have cross-dressing"
In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu (translated by Gematsu) director Testuya Nomura revealed a few additional tidbits about Final Fantasy VII Remake.
The big news is that the cross-dressing and Honey Bee Inn scenes are still in the game. "We’ve made it more modern. If we made the facility like we did in the original game, the physical unease would be staggering, so that was no good..." Nomura explained.
In addition to this, Nomura revealed that the game would have quite a few dialogue options, and new scenarios. While the main story itself will be faithful to the original, there are "countless number of new events" that will expand the story of Midgar. Finally we learned that the black mist in the trailer are "the watchmen of fate", mysterious beings that will appear before the party wherever they go.
