During the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary Celebration Livestream, Square Enix revealed Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, a remake of the original Crisis Core title on PSP.
Fans were expecting big news from Square Enix during the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary Celebration broadcast, and the Japanese developer certainly delivered.
Along with the reveal of Final Fantasy Remake Part 2, now officially known as Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, fans received news about FFVII Remake Intergrade for PC and Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis.
However, Square Enix also announced that Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, a massive remake of the original Crisis Core on PSP, will be released later this year.

Next up, fans were treated to a lot of actual gameplay, which sounds a lot like the original Crisis Core: FFVII title.
However, it’s very clear that Crisis Core Reunion is getting a massive technical overhaul, as it looks very similar aesthetically to 2020’s FFVII Remake.
Square gave some details about this new title and said that “this new version improves the graphics to HD and updates all the 3D models of the game”.
Square’s work certainly shows that the new models look a far cry from the lower resolution models and textures found in the original PSP title.
Crisis Core Reunion will also feature “full voiceovers and new musical arrangements”, with the Japanese developer stating that this new version “…goes far beyond a simple HD remaster”.
The game will also be coming to a wide variety of platforms, with PS4/PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Steam on the list.
While fans don’t have a concrete release date yet, they are expecting Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion to release sometime in Winter 2022.
