Introducing CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNIONThe critically-acclaimed prequel to FINAL FANTASY VII is coming back in a big way on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam and Switch!
Well, that was quite the reveal!
During the recent FINAL FANTASY VII 25th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION stream, we announced CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNION - a true remaster of the beloved prequel to FINAL FANTASY VII!
What’s more, it’s coming out this year!
Take a look at the new trailer, and when you’re done, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about this one of a kind RPG.
What is CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNION?
The new game is a full remaster of the PlayStation Portable exclusive CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII-, which originally launched back in 2007.
That game quickly won acclaim thanks to innovative gameplay, likeable characters and an impactful narrative that added even more detail and richness to the world of FINAL FANTASY VII. Now it’s coming back in a new and improved form.
CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNION is a true remaster that follows the original’s narrative: Zack Fair’s mission to find the missing SOLDIER Genesis Rhapsodos. It features multiple improvements from the original game - for example, the graphics have been converted to HD, with all the 3D models, from the characters to everything else, being fully refreshed. What’s more the dialogue is now fully voice-acted, and there’s a new arrangement for the soundtrack!
Long-time FINAL FANTASY VII fans will require no introduction to the inestimable Mr. Fair, but newer players may be wondering: who’s this black-haired fellow - and why is he holding such a familiar sword?
Without wishing to give too much away, Zack Fair is a young SOLDIER 2nd Class, who works for the Shinra Electric Power Company. He’s an important character in the FINAL FANTASY VII mythos, and the way his story weaves into the fates of characters like Cloud, Aerith, Tifa and Sephiroth will leave a lasting impression.
Do I need to have played FINAL FANTASY VII or FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE to play this?
No you don’t!
One of the brilliant things about CRISIS CORE is that it works as an exciting standalone adventure in its own right. You don’t need any existing knowledge of Shinra, Mako, or anything else in FINAL FANTASY VII to follow the story.
That said, there’s a genuine thrill in seeing how the games connect. Each game adds richness and detail to the others - and fans will delight at seeing how it all links up.
When will CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNION release?
We’re excited to announce that CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNION will release for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam and Nintendo Switch this winter.
