Play as the talking lab rat dog.
When Square Enix confirmed that Red XIII would only appear in Final Fantasy 7 Remake as a guest party member rather than as a full-on playable character, quite a lot of people were more than a little disappointed. As one of the main characters in the original Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Red XIII is someone many people were looking forward to playing as.
He will, in all likelihood, be playable in FF7 Remake’s sequel – whenever that arrives – but here’s some good news for you- you might not have to wait too long to be able to step into his paw-shaped shoes. Software engineer Luciano Ciccariello recently took to Twitter to share that using his SaveEditor mod, you can play as Red XIII. He has a full movement suite, attacks, dodging, and more, though he does have some restrictions. For instance, you can’t equip Materia, or use magic attacks. Take a look at him in action through @DENGOJIN’s video upload on Twitter below.
Not even 2 weeks from Final Fantasy VII REMAKE and you can already play as Red XIII, teleport anywhere, spawn out of bounds, create Materia, change background music and more, by using the latest version of Kingdom Save Editor!https://t.co/VwTACm6veD

FF7R Red XIII gameplay in combat. He has battle quotes, dodge and blocking. But you can't change his equipment, use magic or limit breaks. But he controls really well and his dodge is quite fast, probably on par with Tifa's
