Square Enix has opened the floodgates for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, spilling loads of details on the upcoming remaster. But perhaps calling it a 'remaster' doesn't do the project justice. The publisher outwardly states that Reunion is "so much more than a simple HD remaster", and goes on to share new information on gameplay adjustments, system tweaks, and more.
Here's a quick rundown that we've put together, based on Square Enix's official website:
- Completely refreshed visuals — all character models, backgrounds, and the user interface have been entirely remade
- A newly arranged soundtrack
- Additional voiced dialogue for scenes that didn't originally have voice acting — the whole story is now fully voiced
- Vastly improved camera and character movements (the PSP only had one analog stick, remember!)
- User interface has been optimised for modern consoles
- "Various skip features" have been added to make for a more "convenient" experience
- Battle system has "massively improved controls"
- The DMW (slot wheels) is still a feature of combat
It definitely sounds like Square Enix has gone above and beyond with this one, which makes sense when you consider the recent revival of all things Final Fantasy VII, largely thanks to Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is due to release this winter. But will you be rejoining Zack on his quest to become a hero? Swing your oversized sword in the comments section below.
I Wonder If They Will Change the ending to be more in line With Final fantasy 7 remake.
@Areus It is possible to keep the story and ending of Crisis Core intact....because FF7R didn't alter history until they defeated the whispers and transformed the timeline. Just a thought...
Will wait for it to go on PS+ like the remake.
Really looking forward to this.
Never played this, but if it’s anything like FF7R in terms of combat, I am completely sold. Looking forward to seeing some uncut gameplay footage of the game’s combat overhaul.
Definitely getting this one, I didn't play the psp version back then so I will get this version 😃
@Areus nope they said the game is still going to follow the OG FFVII story
Sony: "We added a new texture pack and some model updates. It's a remake!"
Square-Enix: "We remade everything from the ground up, new UI, new movement, new gameplay, new music, new voice acting, . It's a remaster."
It's like looking down at the sky.
Played it to death on the PSP. Only changes I would welcome are a new english voice actor for Zack and making the combat more like FF7remake. The slot wheels could go if it were after me, but it's fine if they keep it. Flashed out side missions would also be cool.
Already pre-ordered. One of my favorite PSP games, looking forward to this remake.
What i want to know is if it will still have the mission structure ala monster hunter.
That's what bored me.
If they made it a linear experience I'd give it a go.
It'd be cool if they threw in the original psp version as a bonus, especially now that playstation can emulate psp games. Though I guess the soundtrack is an issue.
So sick, Final Fantasy fans eating good these days.
@Areus Final Fantasy VII is still canon. Remake is an alternate timeline affected by Sephiroth moving through the Lifestream.
One of the reasons I got an PSP was Crisis Core. So for sure gona play this Remake!!
@NEStalgia The chrono cross remaster was just a lazy port.
I'll Pass. OG game was mids at best.
@LittleGhost definitely agreed on Chrono Cross.... That was a tragedy.
@freddquadros Day 1 buy for sure dude! I will prob wait months for it to be fully patched, but will happily support Square Enix.
@KidBoruto SquareEnix is very good in this aspect, their games comes very complete in launch, bugs are minor. That's why I got FFVIIR first, and waited for Cyberpunk 2077. FFVIIR worked like butter, day one.
@freddquadros I'll wait and see if there are any bugs at launch before playing, but trust me I want to play this ASAP!
