Crisis Core –Final Fantasy 7– Reunion Review

Crisis Core –Final Fantasy 7– Reunion is a perfect example of how a game can blur the line between a remaster and a remake, using the skeleton of its already great 2007 PSP original while completely rebuilding the muscle around it. Every change brings it much closer to 2020’s excellent Final Fantasy 7 Remake, from its gorgeously updated graphics to its considerably faster combat. However, Crisis Core stops short of the total upheaval FF7R leaned into, and many design choices made with the original PSP game in mind prevent this remaster from being an entirely unblemished reunion.

Fortnite Rumor Claims Final Fantasy Content Could be Coming

Fortnite has featured characters and content based on just about every major IP in existence, but there are some franchises that have yet to appear in the game. One of those is Final Fantasy, but that could be changing if a new rumor is to be believed. The rumor started with YouTuber Tabor Hill. As reliable Fortnite leaker @ShiinaBR points out, Hill's Fortnite "Wish List" video contained actual leaks for the game. In that video, Hill mentioned Final Fantasy, so it's possible this was more than just some wishful thinking on the YouTuber's part!

Bandai Namco Files Trademark For a Tales of Arise Project

Just like Square Enix has Final Fantasy, Bandai Namco has the Tales series. The latest installment, Tales of Arise, was well-received by the audience. It has an engaging story, great voice acting, and amazing combat. Now, while the developers behind the RPG announced there wasn’t going to be a DLC or sequel, Bandai Namco just filed a new trademark. This is related to something called Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn. We have no idea what this might be. In many cases, several trademarks just stay like that and the companies never do anything. However, the speculation of a Tales of Arise spin-off just rose due to this trademark.

Final Fantasy I

Is a simple RPG reflective of the genre’s infancy — and it’s frankly all the better for it. The original Final Fantasy is simplicity at its best: form a party, explore the world, kill some bad guys, and charge your crystals. It’s a pure adventure from top to bottom that places an emphasis on your experience above all else. There’s a respectable degree of choice at play. Not so much where you’re bogged down by options or can change how the story plays out, but enough where each playthrough has a distinct personality tied to you personally. The very first decision you make in Final Fantasy fundamentally impacts your playthrough: how do you build your party? You can’t change your party once they’re selected, so you have to make sure who you bring suits your play style and gameplay interests for the whole game. This adds an element of replayability to the experience. Different party compositions greatly shake up the core gameplay, offering specific advantages and disadvantages.

So you want to get into the Final Fantasy Series…

To call Final Fantasy a titan of the RPG world is a profound understatement. For many, it is the RPG series. For many others, it used to be. Some consider it a home for tradition, others an experimental playground. It’s a series that’s as divisive as any, but one that nonetheless keeps breaking sales records and posting success after success. But with 15 mainline games to date, the only type of fan left behind in the discussion is the non-fan.

Most video game reboots stink. But not the latest Final Fantasy.

One of the most anticipated video games of the year isn’t really new. It’s 15 years old. And it’s a prequel to a game that’s even older. The new game is Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, set for release next week. It’s a reboot of a hand-held game with almost the same name from 2007, except with nicer graphics and sped-up battles so it can be resold for modern systems, including new PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo consoles. It’s also a prequel to yet another game reboot, 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake.
