FF7 Remake Sewer Entrance – How to Get Back?

To get back to the Sewers in the remake of Final Fantasy VII, you have to continue through the game until you reach Chapter 14. Continue with the main plot of the game, and you’ll eventually come across the “Recovering the Key” step. This will require you to hunt down a shoat into its layer, after it takes off with the item. This will lead you straight back into the sewers. After you kill the shoal and a brief cutscene, you’re supposed to follow after Leslie, which will open a new door to the sewers for you.

Alternatively, you can take care of the third Corneo Vault right then and there. When Leslie clambers up a ladder, don’t follow him. Instead, flip the switch right next to the ladder. This will drop the water level in the Vault, allowing you access inside. So, head right in there. Just keep in mind that there are monsters inside this vault, so be ready to tussle. Loot the vault, and you’ll find the Emerald Tiara. If this is the third tiara you’ve found, you can take them all to Merle later on and wrap that quest up, too.

So, there you have it, that’s how you get back into the Sewers in the FF7 remake; just be patient and play on.
