I will always call her Aeris, since that was her name in the PS1 game, it seems weird that they are now calling her Aerith. Aeris sounds much better.

Aerith is canon while "Aeris" isn't.

My 2 copies of the original PS1 version,and their manuals say her name is Aeris Gainsborough. Calling her Aerith, is like DC Comics re-conning Batman to Batmon.

So what? In my copy of Crisis Core she's referred to as Aerith Gainsborough. In KH1 and every other official source since at least 2001 her name is Aerith Gainsborough. Terrible and irrelevant analogy.

So they misspelled her name

Her name wasn't misspelled, it was corrected. Why are you spreading lies?

Because he is trolling so just ignore him and move on. Oh and she is Aerith in this remake as well.

If they really are retconning her name to Aerith, that is sad to hear.

It was never a retcon. Aeris was a translation error, hell in the original game if you use a glitch to skip to wall market she is on your team with the name Aerith which implies Aeris was a fairly late choice the localisers made at the time.

So they misspelled her name in spinoff games, what is your point?
Her name was always Aerith. US localization sucked and got tons wrong in the og. (SE’s localization team still sucks, but that’s besides the point).

these are from the original japanese manual and merchandising.

Fixing mistakes from Square’s horrible translators is a good enough reason alone for a remake.
