fans of Final Fantasy 7 they had their moment of blessing when Square Enix announced a bunch of new titles based on the franchise. That was last week in a live stream celebrating the original game’s 25th anniversary, and while much was shown that caught the attention of many, one game in particular that has generated a lot of buzz is Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion. It’s technically supposed to be an HD remaster of the 2007 PSP-exclusive action-RPG, but Square Enix says it’s more than just a remaster, and a new comparison video seems to confirm for those in doubt.
Uploaded by the YouTube channel, ElAnalistaDeBits the video compares the Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 original with its upcoming remaster, it shows off some impressive visual leaps that the remaster is making, to the point where it almost looks like a full remake (which it technically isn’t). Character models, environments, lighting, backgrounds, camera control, and more have all seen massive updates, far more than you’d expect from even the most comprehensive remasters out there. It seems that the same engine of FF7 Remake is being used.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion It’s due out this winter for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. In the meantime, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirththe sequel to Final Fantasy 7 Remake, will be out next winter exclusively for PS5, while the latest installment in the remake trilogy is also already in development.
