At the September 2022 Nintendo Direct, Square Enix shared the release date trailer for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, which will launch on December 13, 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC via Steam. This game is a full-blown remaster of the original 2008 PSP action RPG that served as a prequel to Final Fantasy VII starring Zack Fair. The graphics have received a huge overhaul, but not so huge that the humble Switch can’t run it natively.
Here is how Nintendo describes Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion ahead of its new December 2022 release date:
Experience the events leading up to FINAL FANTASY VII in this exhilarating action-RPG. Zack Fair is a young and ambitious SOLDIER operative aspiring to become a hero. Together with Sephiroth and Cloud, he investigates strange disappearances within his elite unit. This remaster features enhanced HD graphics, an updated combat system and new soundtrack arrangements. CRISIS CORE –FINAL FANTASY VII– REUNION launches on Nintendo Switch on Dec. 13.
In other Square Enix news at the Nintendo Direct, Harvestella is receiving an eShop demo today ahead of its November 4, 2022 release date, with save data transferable over to the final release. Plus, the developer announced Octopath Traveler II for Switch.
