Final Fantasy 7 fans have been clamoring for more details since last month’s announcement of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, the 2007 remake of Crisis Core, and today Square Enix gave us a glimpse of what we can expect.
The game will differ from the original in several ways, including an improved camera and character models.
In the trailer released last month, we saw fast and insane combat as well as vastly improved character models. The game uses the new designs of Aerith and Zack from Final Fantasy 7 Remake, as well as improved models of other characters.
Players will also get a streamlined user interface and a new menu-based combat system. Although the details of the combat system have yet to be revealed, the glimpses of the combat system that we have received do not seem too far from the original and still include a DMW system similar to the “one-armed bandit” slot machine.
Final Fantasy 7 has always included great music, and the Crisis Core remake will include new background music arrangements from Takeharu Ishimoto. The remake will also feature voice acting in scenes that were previously only text-based.
Crisis Core originally came out back in 2007 on the PSP. It serves as a prequel to Final Fantasy 7 and follows Zack Phair on his journey in search of the missing SOLDIER Genesis Rhapsodos.
