Square Enix had a lot to announce during a celebratory stream for Final Fantasy VII’s 25th anniversary yesterday. Among these was the announcement of a new remaster called Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion. And yes, it’s coming to PC this winter.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is a remaster of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. The original was only released on PlayStation Portable 2007 as a prequel to FF VII. So it’s great to see that more players will be able to play the prequel this time around.
“This new version enhances the graphics to HD and updates all of the 3D models in the game,” reads the description. “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.”
Considering how technically accomplished Final Fantasy VII Remake is, there are high hopes for the presentation of Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is certainly exciting, but Square Enix did not stop there with its announcements. The Japanese developer also revealed that Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will now be available to purchase on Steam. The game is also compatible with the Steam Deck. Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade has been available on the Epic Games Store since December of last year, but now even more PC players will have access to it.
Most exciting of all was the reveal of the second game in the new Final Fantasy VII trilogy of remakes. Dubbed Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the second game in the remake trilogy will be released as a PlayStation 5 exclusive next winter. However, given that the first game eventually made its way to PC, we expect that the sequels will also do the same in due time.
