Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion Trailer Reveals New Changes
While it seems like most of 2022’s major video games have been published, Square Enix has one more major title coming out next month. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion is an improved version of a game that first appeared on the PSP in 2007. In a new teaser published today, Square Enix describes it as “more than a remaster.” Many of the enhancements that players can anticipate seeing are highlighted in the video, including enhanced visuals, new music arrangements, complete voice acting, and more. It makes a solid argument for anybody on the fence about picking up the game in December!
The new “more than a remaster” video is posted in the Tweet below.
#CrisisCore –Final Fantasy VII– Reunion is more than a remaster.
Cloud Strife, Sephiroth, and Aerith make cameos in Crisis Core, a precursor to Final Fantasy VII. Instead of placing players in any of these positions, the game’s protagonist is Zack Fair. Zack was only seen in flashbacks in Final Fantasy VII and had a minimal role. Crisis Core focuses on the character, explaining his past with Cloud and Sephiroth as well as his relationship with the renowned Buster Sword. Zack is a SOLDIER member, and the game takes place seven years before the events of Final Fantasy VII.
Given the amount of platforms Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion will be available on, the game should have a far higher chance of reaching an audience this time! The original game sold well on the PSP and had a devoted following over the years, but it never achieved the success of previous Final Fantasy titles. Square Enix clearly hopes to alter that!
It’s difficult to tell if these improvements genuinely make Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion “more than a remaster,” but players will be able to find out for themselves on December 13th when the game arrives on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
