What was the point of drowning her? Was it because she'd never be able to walk again and be a hindrance?
Jenova wants that Holy defence stopped, doesn't want an Ancient around, and also needs Cloud furious and focused enough to keep going north as a backup puppet in case the Sephiroth clones can't deliver the Black Materia.
obv to end the race of Cetra once and for all so he can summon meteor?
Sephiroth knew only Aeris could stop him dude, he read all those fuckin books in the mansion remember
>holy worked anyway so he can fuck himself
They've already confirmed that they're making minor story changes. Important plot points like the crossdressing scene, Gold Saucer dates, and Cloud getting gay raped in the sauna are in, but minor unimportant side stuff like Aerith dying are all subject to change.
heres your (fuckyou)
The idea was to kill Aeris before she can pray for Holy, but she managed to pray for Holy anyway, but Holy turned out to be worthless, so killing her served no point. In fact, if she had been alive, she couldn't have saved the world with Lifestream at the end.
>never played FFVII
>holy, materia, lifestream, meteor, ancient, cetra
>all these buzzwords
This is supposedly the best FF game? How could even children find this pile of trash exciting?
>actually swallowed the "Sephiroth is the author of all Cloud's pain" retcon, that came about because Square saw how lardarse fangirls and edgelord teenagers creamed their pants over Sephy so much
>le retcon meme
this shit just gets better and better.
