UPDATE FROM THE DEV TEAM: Apparently, Capcom Japan intended for Aero's name to be Sephira and have asked for us to update everyone. So there you have it! Allow me to re-introduce...Sephira!!
(via Capcom Unity)
Interestingly, the name change only applies to English side of things. Over at the Japanese devroom, she's still referred to as Aero -- so I think it's safe to assume this has to do with localization. The change shouldn't come as a major surprise; Capcom's made a practice of altering names and titles when it comes to bringing games outside of Japan for quite a while now.
For those of you keeping track, 'Sephira' marks the character's third name change. She was internally referred to as "Lilly" for a short while, then Aero (final name in Japan) and now Sephira for the rest of the world. Don't know about you but I like it; has a nice ring to it.
Also, desktop wallpapers!

Hello Sephira! Nice to meet you! ^_^ReplyDelete
I thought 'Aero' was fine. Can't imagine why localization felt they had to change it. They should see about changing those ugly, pointless zipper sleeves instead.ReplyDelete
Captain Ass-Zipper wants a word with you.

"Sephira"? Personally, I liked "Aero" better.ReplyDelete
I like Aero more. :<ReplyDelete
I kinda like Sephira. Aero seems a bit boyish but then again with names like Roll and Tron, I could've gone along with it.ReplyDelete
It doesn't matter how many times she changes her name, she'll always be the slut we know and love.ReplyDelete
Why would they say that the Japanese wanted the name to change, though? Why is Capcom lying to us? D:ReplyDelete
Yeah Aero sounds a lot cooler. Sephira sounds too much like Sephora, the cosmetics store (also too similar to Sephiroth for my taste).ReplyDelete
I prefer Aero, myself. Oh well, whatever. Not a big deal.ReplyDelete
I think I'm going to make a post in the dev forums asking about why they made the change. Seems kinda pointless to me, but they must have a reason. I am kinda in the same boat as the first anon, though; "Aero" is a pretty masculine-sounding name, in my opinion.ReplyDelete
Judging from the name, Sephira is probably going to be an angel type character which doesn't know her origins and is "awakened" later in the game, etc etc. You all know similar scenarios. I call it now, lol.ReplyDelete
Hope it's not Sephiroth's daughter! lolololol!ReplyDelete
By the way, "Sephira" sounds pretty good than "Aero".
She still looks like a little adorable kitten-troll. :3ReplyDelete
I added her as a friend on Facebook. みんな！Add her!ReplyDelete
