Not entirely sure if anyone else has looked through the game's map files yet, but there's quite a few peculiar items in there, some with more reason to be there than others. I thought it'd be interesting to take a look at them, so here are some of the ones I've found so far!

I can only assume that might have been one of the earlier maps created for the game, hence why all this random character artwork was thrown in there. That Alice is a bit less detailed than the one we saw in the first screenshot released for the game. Looks like they were trying out a much simpler style back in the early days!

Larger versions of the in-game artwork can be found here!

This one was just posted up on our Chi twitter a few hours ago:

Maybe they intended on using this as a reference of sorts or planned on including Sephiroth at one point, but uh...
I'd like to know the thought process that went into making the decision for this.

Hey look, it's Snow White and the Prince! You'd never know they were there because of all the trees in the way!

Again, I'm assuming this was being used as some sort of reference for the actual scene taking place there, but Snow White is unbelievably creepy here.

It's so interesting to see the beta works before the finalized work. The Alice in Wonderland characters look so much better. Prince Charming holding the long sword is just hilarious. I can probably see why they were using him as reference because of his eyes.

I'm pretty sure this is a joke based on the fact that Toshiyuki Morikawa voices both the Prince and Sephiroth.

Starring Snow White as Aerith. Wait, what?
I don't know how I should feel about the Prince holding the Masamune, it's... ridiculous and scary at the same time. And the fact that this is found in the Underworld...
*imagines a scenario where the Prince was a prisoner in the Underworld, all the stress made his hair go white, years passed and his hair got longer, he turned into another Sephiroth over time and... decided to get a new haircut once he escaped the Underworld?* This... is inconsistent.

I think I posted about the Prince last year, maybe it's also a Sephipooh reference, I don't know.:wink:

The old character sprites on the court map confirm that the game was probably already finished content-wise, they are just releasing it very slowly.

I always love being able to see the beta versions of stuff.

All bow before sideways-floating zombie Snow White. (Seriously Snow, your supposed to be dead/asleep. Shut your dang eyes, it's creepy!)

I did not know this. Now I do.
