Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, the remake of the beloved PSP game, finally has a release date of 13 December 2022 for consoles and PC. The game was first announced at the Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary event earlier this year, but now we have a confirmed release date as well as a brand new trailer.
During the recent Nintendo Direct event, Square Enix revealed that Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will arrive on 13 December, not only for Nintendo Switch but PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC as well. This marks the first Final Fantasy VII-related remake project that’s bypassed PlayStation’s console exclusivity unlike Final Fantasy VII Remake which is only available on PlayStation and PC at the moment.

Crisis Core is a prequel to Final Fantasy VII and follows fan-favourite character Zack Fair, the Soldier 2nd Class who is directly linked to the main game’s protagonist, Cloud Strife. In addition to the new trailer and release date, Square Enix also revealed plenty of new information via a recent blog post detailing the game’s combat and more.
The combat system in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will combine real-time combat with a command system, not too dissimilar to the system used in Final Fantasy VII Remake. A new slot-like mechanic called Digital Mind Wave will also be introduced, which triggers randomised effects during battles, though this also includes access to powerful Limit Break attacks. Summons can also be called this way as Zack can enlist the help of Bahamut, Ifrit and other popular summons from the series.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion officially launches on 13 December 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC. Check out the latest trailer below.
