The prequel to Final Fantasy VII will finally be making its way to a Nintendo platform.
Square Enix aired a presentation to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, hosted by Final Fantasy series brand manager, Yoshinori Kitase. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is a remaster of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII which originally released on PSP back in 2007 for Japan and 2008 for the west.
According to Square Enix, the game will be more than a “simple HD remaster”:
“‘His legacy, gave life to FINAL FANTASY VII──Since its original release in 2007, CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– has received wide acclaim for its deep and emotional story.’ This new version enhances the graphics to HD and updates all of the 3D models in the game. Full voiceovers and new music arrangements present this epic tale of strife and heroism, presenting FINAL FANTASY VII in a brand-new light. Enjoy a more beautiful and accessible CRISIS CORE, going way beyond just a simple HD remaster.”
Nintendo fans should not be too unfamiliar with Final Fantasy VII since Cloud & Sephiroth are fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and an HD port of the original Final Fantasy VII released for Switch in 2019.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will be available for Switch & other platforms this winter.
