Many Final Fantasy 7 fans were disappointed to learn key character Red XIII is not playable in the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, despite being one of the stars of the original game. But it turns out he is playable – briefly – via save editing.
Final Fantasy 7’s iconic red wolf / lion turns up in the remake during Chapter 17 as a guest character, but he’s controlled by the AI. You can’t control him yourself.
This week, software engineer and prolific game hacker Luciano “Xeeynamo” Ciccariello updated his Kingdom Hearts save editor so it works with Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and while at this early stage it has limited functionality, the editor makes Red XIII playable in combat.
