Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 Reunion is in the pipeline and producer Yoshinori Kitase was interviewed by the PlayStation Blog to promote the launch of the game, on this occasion Kitase talked about the reasons that led him to want to remaster the game, rather than simply re-propose the original version in digital format .
Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 originally came out on PSP and today it could be repurposed as a Cloud game or otherwise re-released on digital platformshowever Square Enix has gone a different way, mainly due to the huge success of Final Fantasy VII Remake:
“If the original hardware of a game is no longer produced, it can be difficult to play. Crisis Core is an example. Of course, you could use cloud technology to play it with its original technical features, but the truth is that after Final Fantasy VII Remake fans have higher graphics expectations. So I think it’s definitely worth remastering the game for current generation platforms to meet those expectations. “
These are Kitase’s words, which reiterates that after the excellent response of Final Fantasy VII Remake, for Square Enix it would certainly have been difficult to reproduce the original version of a video game with graphics that are particularly dated today. Hence the choice to remaster the game and thus give birth to Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, out on December 13th su PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S e Nintendo Switch.
