The Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary Celebration stream may have only been 10 minutes long but was jam packed with a lot of exciting news for fans of the series. During the stream, Square Enix revealed that the official prequel to Final Fantasy 7 that was released exclusively to the PSP console back in 2007 is now officially getting a remake and launching later this year.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 - Reunion is an upcoming remake of the PSP exclusive prequel and will be officially launching this Winter, which likely means a December 2022-February 2023 release window. The best part is that this remake is coming to PC at the same time as consoles, and won’t be an Epic Games Store exclusive either.

The Crisis Core Remake includes enhanced graphics, updated 3D models, “full voiceovers and new music arrangements” that apparently goes “way beyond just a simple HD remaster.” It sure looks a hell of a lot like the Final Fantasy 7 Remake (and upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth), so expect similar system requirements as we would imagine.

What do you think? Are you excited for the Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 Reunion? Did you play the original PSP version? Do you think it is worth it for new players of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake? Let us know your thoughts!

They changed the voice actor and for that I am not getting until it is on sale probably.

This is a pleasant surprise, hopefully they don't split this one into 3 parts as well.

No. No it doesn't. Not even close. It looks like a HD Remaster. I suspect the system requirements to be a fair bit lower than the other games.


I am not a fan of the new voiceover work though. Not from these trailers.

You're right, as excited as I am about it, it looks pretty crap and I'd rather feed off some fond memories from the PSP version...

I'm excited but won't deny that i expected for a FF7 level of a remake, the gameplay looks the same as the psp version.

Good. It's arguably one of the best FF games ever made.

Holy crap, this underrated gem is getting a remake. I loved it so much back in the day on the psp. Oh good times.
