You can check out the special moment below, but if you haven’t started the game yet, there are spoilers in the video for the game’s earlier hours.
I was not prepared for this moment. Hearing my voice over work in the finished product for the first time… Pure magic.

As you can see, White isn’t quite sure where to go before she realizes where she’s at in Midgar and which scene she’s about to reach.
After the scene begins, White begins to cry after hearing the first bit of her VO work for Aerith, which isn’t even words — just panicked shrieks. As the scene continues, Aerith actually says words causing the tears to start up again. She laughs at Aerith’s remarks to Cloud’s too-cool-for-you attitude as well. Yeah, we laughed and cried too, Briana, you’re not alone. Not that we voiced any of the characters or anything.For more, check out our guide to the cast of Final Fantasy 7 Remake to see who voices characters alongside White. After that, read about the cast’s thoughts on living up to fan expectations surrounding the game, and if you’re playing yourself, be sure to read up on our battle system guide and combat tips.
