Will the flower girl from the slums be called Aerith or Aeris in this version?

It's definitely going to be weird for me if she's called Aerith in the remake because I've been living in this lie for so long that I've come to accept it.

Oh and I'm super hype for this game! :D

Is there a th sound in japanese? It probably doesnt matter if you are from there. They will be calling her Aeris regardless.

She will be called Aerith in the game, but she will always be Aeris to me

The mistranslation was fixed literally decades ago. I'll never understand how people can be fans of something, yet somehow avoid any information about it for twenty years.

It's Aeris for me. I don't give a fying f*** what she's been called in Japan 20 years ago. Or do you people also call Ash (from Pokemon), Satoshi? I don't think so. Unless you're a super weeb.

There's a difference between a mistranslation that'slong since been corrected and a character being called something else in the source language. But be sure to keep sticking to the wrong name that the people who made the game never intended just because you can't adjust to new information.

Problem there is the fact that she's been Aerith in literally everything after the original release, even english. It's fine if you prefer Aeris for whatever reason, but Japans not the only place she's Aerith.
