Crisis Core –Final Fantasy Vii– Reunion: The release date for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion has been revealed. Earlier this year, at Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary event, the remaster was unveiled alongside the sequel, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. The much-anticipated remaster of the critically acclaimed Final Fantasy 7 PSP precursor with updated visuals and new voice acting has been announced.
Japan was the first country to release Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 for the PSP, which was back in September of 2007. In this game, Cloud Strife’s mentor, Zack Fair, is tasked by the paramilitary organization SOLDIER with finding the whereabouts of missing agent Genesis Rhapsodos. He has conversations with many important characters, including Sephiroth and Aerith, and these encounters set the stage for a number of the events in Final Fantasy 7 and its spin-offs. Hajime Tabata, who also led Final Fantasy 15, directed the game, while Tetsuya Nomura, who directed the original Final Fantasy 7, designed the characters.
Square Enix has revealed the precise release date for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, which had previously only been given a vague “Winter 2022” release window. This news was dropped during today’s Nintendo Direct. On December 13, 2022, it was announced that Nintendo Switch would be the launch platform for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion. The game is also coming out for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. You can get it on systems other than PlayStation for the first time.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7’s remaster goes above and beyond Square Enix’s typical remaster efforts, with voice acting restored with Final Fantasy 7 Remake cast members, visuals rebuilt to reflect the remake better, and the combat system wholly revamped. Upon release, many people found the rolling slots-based combat mechanism used in the original Crisis Core too arbitrary and unreliable. The slot system will remain in the remake, but the game will have more action-oriented combat in the vein of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
It makes natural that a lot of work was redone to bring the game up to today’s standards and include many components from the remake since this would be many players’ first time seeing Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 since the remake was so popular in 2020. In a peculiar turn of events, Square Enix has previously stated that Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion would not feature any new plot components, meaning there will be no more significant ties to the universe of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. For those waiting for the release of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth in the winter of 2023, this game should suffice.
Crisis Core –Final Fantasy Vii– Reunion Plot
Zack Fair and his strict but caring tutor Angeal Hewley are sent to Wutai to aid the Shinra army. Angel, however, vanishes amidst the conflict. He and another SOLDIER, Genesis Rhapsodos, have gone missing, and Zack has been tasked with finding them both. Zack and Tseng discover that Genesis and Angeal have abandoned Shinra. The task of killing them has been given to Zack and Sephiroth. Genesis creates clone soldiers to attack Shinra headquarters with the help of Dr. Hollander, a scientist with a grudge against Shinra.
Zack and Sephiroth search for Hollander’s hidden lab when the battle is over. Hollander employed Genesis and Angeal in his “Project G,” an effort to produce supersoldiers with cells from the alien lifeform Jenova, as they discover. While Zack goes after Hollander, Sephiroth battles Genesis. Zack attempts to kill the doctor, but Angeal stops him so Hollander can be restored to normal. He slams Zack down into the squalor of Midgar’s underbelly.
Zack becomes well, and Aerith is there to care for him. Zack spends time with them, then heads back to the SOLDIER base, which is under siege by Genesis. Zack re-allies with the wary Angeal, who had previously supported his and Genesis’s efforts but now has serious misgivings. After Angeal, Zack, and Sephiroth secure the headquarters, Angeal confronts Genesis before the two vanish. Once Genesis is spotted, Zack is sent to investigate the town of Modeoheim. On the way, Zack encounters Cloud, a Shinra infantryman who becomes a good buddy.
Zack confronts Genesis, who appears to commit suicide by jumping into the depths of a reactor at Modeoheim after being defeated by Zack. Zack continues his journey to Modeoheim, where he meets Angeal and Hollander. Because of the constant conflict and deterioration, Angeal calls upon and unites with his clones (which resemble canines). Zack has no choice but to murder him when he turns into a monster. Angel offers Zack his Buster Sword before he dies, instructing him to guard his reputation.

Genesis reappears and begins making clones while Shinra keeps hunting for Hollander. Zack had to return to Midgar to safeguard Aerith once some of them showed up there. Zack, Sephiroth, and Cloud go to Nibelheim to look into a Mako reactor, leaving her in the care of a cloned Angeal. When Sephiroth confronts Genesis at the reactor, he finds out that he, too, is an experiment; his cells were implanted with Jenova’s before he was born.
Genesis explains to Sephiroth that his body is deteriorating and that he needs the latter’s cells to continue living, but Sephiroth flatly refuses. Sephiroth retreats to Nibelheim Mansion, overcome by the discoveries of his past. A week later, mistaking Jenova for his mother, he sets fire to Nibelheim and steals her body from the Mako reactor. Cloud tosses Sephiroth into the Lifestream below the reactor after Zack fails to stop him. Once Zack comes to, he learns that Shinra has been covering up the Nibelheim tragedy.
Zack also learns that he and Cloud are subjects in Professor Hojo’s tests on Jenova cells and Mako exposure. Nonetheless, Zack manages to flee, taking a catatonic Cloud with him. Shinra will begin pursuing them immediately. While on the run, Zack discovers that Genesis and Hollander are still working to fix Genesis’ mutation and have planned to use Cloud’s cells (as he is the only one having Sephiroth’s genes).
Crisis Core –Final Fantasy Vii– Reunion Characters
Many characters from Final Fantasy VII and associated works appear in Crisis Core, which takes place seven years before Final Fantasy VII. However, the game’s main characters all hail from Shinra’s private army, SOLDIER, or its special agents, the Turks.
Zack Fair, a youthful and pleasant SOLDIER, is the primary character. Angeal Hewley, a 1st class SOLDIER and his mentor and buddy, is also pals with the game’s main antagonists, Sephiroth and Genesis. Despite being President Shinra’s illegitimate son, the SOLDIER operatives report to Director Lazard. Zack has a friendly relationship with the Turkish leadership, including Tseng and the female operator Cissnei. Throughout the game’s progression, Zack meets and befriends Aerith, a young woman who tends flowers near a destroyed church in the Midgar slums. Another Shinra soldier, Cloud, whom he befriends, is an infantryman.
