The announcement trailer opened with the iconic shot of Zack Fair staring off against a horde of Shinra Soldiers with guns pointed at him.
Next, fans were treated to plenty of actual gameplay, which looks very true to the original Crisis Core: FFVII title.
However, it’s abundantly clear that Crisis Core Reunion is getting a massive technical overhaul, as it looks very aesthetically similar to 2020’s FFVII Remake.
Square gave some details on this new title, saying that “This new version enhances the graphics to HD and updates all of the 3D models in the game.”
Square’s work certainly shows as the new models look like a far cry from the lower resolution models and textures found on the original PSP title.
Crisis Core Reunion will also feature “full voiceovers and new music arrangements,” with the Japanese developer claiming this remake is “…going way beyond just a simple HD remaster.”
The game is also coming to a wide variety of platforms, with PS4/PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Steam all being listed.
While fans don’t have a concrete release date just yet, expect Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion to launch sometime in Winter 2022.
