Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion Confirmed For December 13 Launch

Zack Fair's prequel adventure featured during today's Nintendo Direct.


After being revealed during the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary livestream earlier this year, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion has been confirmed for a December 13 release date via a new trailer during today's Nintendo Direct.

Crisis Core follows Zack Fair, the Soldier 2nd Class linked to Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VII Remake, in a prequel adventure that first launched on the Sony PSP in 2009. More details about Crisis Core Reunion have been revealed on the Square Enix blog, including a deep dive on the combat system. The game will combine real-time combat with a command system, allowing players to make snap decisions on which abilities to use throughout the course of a fight.

The game will also employ a system called Digital Mind Wave, a slots-like mechanic which will trigger randomized effects on the battlefield, including access to powerful Limit Break attacks. The DMW may also sometimes enter a Summons mode, which allows Zack to ask for help from Ifrit, Bahamut, and other FF summons.

Multiple characters from the original Final Fantasy VII adventure appear in Crisis Core, and the blog goes into detail on some of the familiar faces seen throughout the game. Along with the aforementioned Cloud Strife, Crisis Core will feature Aerith, Yuffie, the Turks, and the villainous Sephiroth.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will bring the PSP adventure to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC on December 13.
