Proving that Square Enix is focused on building up the hype on one of its most beloved franchises, the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary made a surprising reveal by showcasing a modern treatment to its more than a decade-old PSP title—a full-on remaster of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII or more specifically, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII is the prequel to the original Final Fantasy VII and sees Zack Fair as the protagonist. It is set in a timeline when Cloud Strife was still fresh blood trying to work his way up through the ranks of the SOLDIER program.
Unlike the original JRPG title, Crisis Core brought the series to a different level by pivoting away from the traditional turn-based system to more action-oriented gameplay, plus additional new mechanics.
Players who had experienced the seventh major installment in the Final Fantasy series will see familiar characters, like main antagonist Sephiroth and the Turks, as well as new ones, like major supporting figures, Angeal Hewley and Genesis Rhapsodos.
