Final Fantasy 7 Prequel Crisis Core Is Getting A Remake, Launches This Winter

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy 7 prequel Crisis Core is getting the remake treatment as well, and is titled Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 – Reunion. The game got a significant trailer during Square Enix's recent anniversary showcase, along with gameplay and several story beats. Best of all, the game will launch for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch this winter, although a specific date wasn't revealed.

In case you're unfamiliar with the game, Crisis Core is essentially a prequel to Final Fantasy 7 and take place a number of years before the events of the original game. It first launched on the PSP back in 2007 and follows crucial character Zack Fair who is tasked with locating fellow SOLDIER Gensis Rhapsodos. This new remake looks to be in the same engine as Final Fantasy 7 Remake, although combat looks a little different to that game.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 – Reunion was announced during the Final Fantasy 7 25th anniversary showcase earlier today, which revealed several exciting projects all related to Final Fantasy 7. Alongside the Crisis Core remake, Square Enix also announced that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will finally be coming to Steam after its exclusivity deal with Epic Games, and also officially revealed Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, the sequel to the first remake which will launch for PS5 in Winter next year.

In addition, another big bombshell that dropped was Square Enix confirming that the new Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is actually the second game in what will be a trilogy, and that the third game will be called Final Fantasy 7 Revive. We didn't get an official trailer or release date for the third game in the trilogy, but it's still nice to know we have even more adventures with Cloud and the gang once we finally get our hands on Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
