The official Japanese website for Crysis Core: Final Fantasy 7 – Reunion says it is “bigger than a mere HD remaster” and gives a little more detail on what’s included in the remaster.
During the 25th Final Fantasy 7 Anniversary Stream, one of Square Enix’s big surprises was the Crysis Core remaster called Crysis Core: Final Fantasy 7 – Reunion. Although it is a remaster, many thought it might actually be a remake thanks to how much better the graphics are. As it turns out, the Japanese website for Reunion feels like it’s much more than a remaster.
Following the announcement of Crisis Corps – Reunion, a website for the game was posted online by Square Enix Japan, revealing a bit more about the game via a description page. Unfortunately, even a few days after the presentation, the English version of the website is still not there. Thankfully, Twitter user aitaikimochi has translated the “about” section of the website to reveal what it says and clarify what the reunion really is.,
According to Aitaikimochi’s translations, this page says, “Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 is a heartwarming story that was released in 2007 and has since become a highly acclaimed part of the series. The story itself is linked to Final Fantasy 7″. , and has now been revived over time, with utmost quality.”
The description also confirms that the game replaces the original model with the new one, but retains the same animations, “By incorporating the latest HD graphics, all the characters in the game will get a completely new 3D model. Upheaval. – Amidst the tumultuous storyline, the game will be fully voiced and feature newly arranged songs, which have been vividly revamped. Gameplay has been optimized to be as smooth as possible and include different combat systems Will go.”
After a short plot summary, Page gives a very barbaric description of the Crisis Core reunion, saying it “has evolved to become something bigger than just an HD remaster”. Obviously, this is more in terms of how the game originally looked on the PSP, but it’s fun to imagine that Square skips the mic as it says it.
