Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

President Shinra’s son and the current Vice President of the Shinra Electric Power Company. He’s recently been away from Midgar on an extended business trip.

He is an immensely prideful man, with a strong rebellious streak towards his father. Despite being vice president, he sometimes enters the battlefield himself, armed with a custom-made shotgun and protected by Darkstar, a military canine.

Palmer (voiced by Naoki Tatsuta in Japanese)

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

The Director of Shinra’s Space and Aeronautics Division. Palmer is the eldest of the company’s executives but has no real power or influence – his division, originally founded with the latest technology at Shinra’s disposal, has all but folded since it failed to launch a rocket.

Because division activities have been suspended indefinitely, Palmer finds himself with lots of time on his hands. He’s fond of butter in his tea and chortles in a distinctive manner.

Reeve Tuesti (voiced by Banjou Ginga in Japanese)

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Head of Urban Development at the Shinra Electric Power Company. He is in charge of the management and maintenance of the Mako city Midgar. While unusual for a Shinra executive, he turns his focus to the Midgar Slums in hopes of of improving the environment. The only person with a sense of decency among Shinra management, he is disregarded by the other leaders who value profit and performance.

Scarlet (voiced by Masako Katsuki in Japanese)

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Shinra’s Director of Advanced Weaponry. During the war, her innovative, high-end armaments brought in a sizable chunk of change for the company.

Her wartime efforts, and the resulting profits, saw Scarlet quickly promoted to executive officer. She is highly capable, as one would expect from someone placed in charge of Shinra’s weapons development.

Kyrie Canaan (voiced by Sumire Uesaka in Japanese)

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

A girl from the Sector 5 slums who makes a living by pulling off scams on unsuspecting victims. Although fearless, she often finds herself in trouble.

■ Moogle Medals

Final Fantasy VII Remake

A new item that didn’t appear in the original Final Fantasy VII. Moogle Medals can be found inside treasure boxes and Shinra Company crates—you’ll have to search high and low to get your hands on them.

There seems to be someone in Midgar who collects Moogle Medals—and if you have some, you may be rewarded…

Final Fantasy VII Remake is due out for PlayStation 4 on April 10 worldwide. A demo is available now via the PlayStation Store. Read more about the game here, here, here, here, here, and here.
