Fourteen years following the initial launch of Final Fantasy VII (1997), fans have discovered an unused scene found only in the Japanese version of game.
In it, the manager of Shinra is seen visiting an unused Honey Bee Inn lobby, speaking to the receptionist at the front desk. Having Cloud speak to the receptionist three times triggers a scene with Palmer and the Shinra manager. If we’re getting the jist of it correct, Palmer’s enjoying his time at the inn and doesn’t want the Shinra Manager present.
A melody named “Comical” plays in the background of the scene. The tune originally discovered in the PC version of the game by FF7 Citadel, though its meaning was unknown. Now we know.
The video of the scene is in Japanese, so we don’t know exactly what it says, but according to The Lifestream, “much of the dialogue reads as jibberish,” containing all the “wrong kanji”.
We’ll take their word for it, being it was unused and all.
