On Sunday, Sony held a PlayStation Play! Play! Play! event presented in Japanese, and it included exclusive interviews and footage for Resident Evil Village and FF7 Remake: Intergrade, the PlayStation 5 upgrade for the first Remake. During an interview with Producer Yoshinori Kitase, a bit of nervous laughter seems to imply that Jessie may have survived the explosive events of the first game.
In the above clip, the stream’s hosts discusses Jessie’s increased role in Remake, particularly an early chapter where “Jessie is like the protagonist” and you visit her parents’ home. That prompts one of the hosts to assume Jessie must still be alive, which makes Kitase burst into a fit of nervous laughter. A translation posted to Twitter from user @aitaikimochi sure makes it seem like there’s something more to the story here.
'FF7 Remake' features several tragic character deaths, but a new interview with Producer Yoshinori Kitase hints that one beloved character may have survived.
