Following the reveal of Kyrie and Rufus Shinra in the newest trailer of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix released their official renders.
The renders were included in a collection of social media icons distributed on the Japanese website.
Most of you already knew Rufus Shrinra due to his appearance in the original game, but the reveal of Kyrie Canaan is relevant because she has never appeared in games before.
Kyrie comes straight from Kazushige Nojima’s novel Final Fantasy VII Gaiden: Turks ~The Kids Are Alright~ as revealed by Tetsuya Nomura last month.
She is one of the many new elements introduced in the remake to enrich and integrate the story.
It remains to be seen how big her role will be, but it’s certainly nice to see how the developers are condensing the lore of the franchise into the remake to create an expanded story showing aspects and characters that have been a bit obscure until now.
Incidentally, while they weren’t revealed today, we also get new renders for Scarlett, Reeve, and Palmer, which you can see below.

The first game of the Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on PS4 on April 10, 2020.
We recently learned that the game will be a PS4 exclusive only since April 10, 2021. After that, it could come to other platforms, even if nothing has been officially confirmed by Square Enix yet besides the date.
