Square Enix has released a new trailer for CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION to clarify that its upcoming port of the PSP classic is much more than a simple remaster, featuring a complete HD graphics overhaul, newly arranged soundtrack, fully voiced dialogue in English and Japanese, and an updated combat system, culminating in a definitive version of the 15-year-old game.

An infographic that Square Enix shared on the official FFVII Twitter account today can also confirm the resolution and framerate that each version of CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION will deliver: 4K resolution on PS5 and Xbox Series X (about 63 times more pixels than on PSP, according to the developer) and up to 120 FPS on PC for an even more fluid experience.

CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION is currently limited to 30 FPS on the Xbox Series S, but Square Enix plans to release a day-one patch that boosts that number to 60 FPS.

“This is more than a remaster, a game that crosses generations and platforms,” said Executive Producer Yoshinori Kitase, a veteran director and producer whose credits span many Final Fantasy games, including classics such as FFVI and FFVII. “We are very proud of all the amazing improvements that the dev team has been able to include in CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION.”


CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION follows the story of Zack Fair, a young warrior admired by the boy destined to save the world, trusted by men renowned as heroes of legend, and loved by the girl who holds the fate of the planet in her hands. The tale of Zack’s dreams and honor—the legacy that connects him to Cloud—is revealed in full in this grand saga that has broken the limits of an HD remaster.

CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION launches on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on December 13, 2022.
