A Final Fantasy VII lost scene has been found in the Japanese version of the game, and is entirely watchable in video form below!
The scene doesn’t seem to be one of significance (I’ve played through FFVII a few times in my life, and don’t really remember what is going on here myself, though you can read my thoughts on the game in my Final Fantasy VII review) and involves Palmer, head of the Shin-Ra Company’s space program, visiting the Honey Bee Inn to get uhhhh “sweet” with one of the “hostess'” dressed as a bumblebee. However he seems to get entirely embarassed about this, and claims he is only there for “market research” when the Honeybee girl addresses him by name. Whoops! CAUGHT’CHA! However she makes it publicly known how happy she is to see him! And that’s when he and another character go running out of the building, causing a shrug of the shoulders from Cloud who witnessed the whole event and was tapping his foot with impatience through the whole ordeal.
While the scene itself is funny and fun to see, the most interesting part is the music… which has never been heard before! This music is not used anywhere else in the game except for this lost scene. Making this Final Fantasy VII lost scene a treat for fans of Nobuo Uematsu’s Final Fantasy VII score who are sure to enjoy the bubbly new piece.
This scene was discovered, along with several others, by a Sweedish gamer who delved into the Japanese code of the game using an emulator. Shademp then posted it on his youtube for all to see. He also found some hidden conversations in the game as well as alternate versions of FMV cutscenes. But the scene below is all-new and never-before-seen.
Although it looks pretty final, it apparently is in an unfinished state as some of the Japanese Kanji characters in the text that you read when speaking to the characters is incomplete and/or incorrect.
Here is the brand new Final Fantasy VII Lost Scene!
