Final Fantasy 7's PSP Prequel is finally getting remastered for modern platforms
Square Enix has revealed Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 - Reunion, a remastered version of Crisis Core, a PSP-only prequel to Final Fantasy 7. The game follows Zack's story, and its remake is coming to all console platforms and PC this Winter.
On PC, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 - Reunion will be releasing on Steam, and on the console side the game is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Crisis Core will soon be available to almost all of today's gamers.
Wait? Is this a Remaster or a Remake?
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 - Reunion is a Remaster, but it goes far beyond what most gamers would expect from a remaster. This isn't a "set the framerate to 60 FPS and up the resolution a little" kind of remaster, Crisis Core's new versions will feature updated 3D models, full voiceovers, new musical arrangements, and more.
Don't expect PSP-level visuals from this remaster, but don't expect the game's visuals to be cutting edge either. Expect the game to be very faithful to the original, and expect the game to run well on modern platforms.
Honestly, Square Enix has managed to push Crisis Core much further than anyone could have expected. With the visuals that we have been shown in the trailer above, it is surprising to hear that this game is a remaster and not a remake. Moving from the PSP to this is a huge leap forward, and the fact that this is a remaster suggests that Square Enix has not messed around with the game's story too much.
