We've got good news and some bad news. The good news is that a new Final Fantasy 7 game has been announced for Xbox this winter. The bad news is that it's not Final Fantasy 7 Remake as many of us had been hoping for.
Instead, it's Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, which is a remaster of the late 2000s PSP exclusive that scored great reviews at the time, and has since gone on to be labeled a "cult classic" by Square Enix. It serves as a prequel to Final Fantasy 7, and you can check out more details about this upcoming remaster below.
"The 2007 cult classic action RPG and prequel to FINAL FANTASY VII. CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII- REUNION is a true remaster that follows the original story of SOLDIER 1st Class Zack Fair on his mission to find missing SOLDIER Genesis Rhapsodos, unraveling the stories of Cloud, Sephiroth, Aeith, Tifa and more."
"This new version enhances the graphics to HD and updates all of the 3D models in the game. Full voiceovers and new music arrangements present this epic tale of strife and heroism, presenting FINAL FANTASY VII in a brand-new light. Enjoy a more beautiful and accessible CRISIS CORE, going way beyond just a simple HD remaster."
There's no release date for this one yet beyond "winter", but we'll let you know more in the future.
Meanwhile, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade was revealed to be getting a Steam release on June 17th at the celebration event earlier today, but sadly there was no mention of an Xbox release whatsoever for the time being.
