When it arrives on every gaming platform later this year, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion The game will feature more voice acting, improved visuals, and new gameplay elements, but Square Enix plans to leave pretty much everything else the same.
Speaking with Eurogamerproducer Mariko Sato explained that the original Crisis core history remains unchanged in reunionnot at all like what is being done with the current Final Fantasy VII trilogy remake. reunion mainly designed to re-introduce players Crisis core main character and Final Fantasy VII minor character Zack Fair, whose role is expanded in remake story line.
“If you played [Final Fantasy VII Remake]or the original, you probably know that Zach is in the first remake a game in which he does not appear at this point in the story in the original final fantasy 7,” said reunion executive producer Yoshinori Kitase. “So he showed more than he was. We thought that the people who start the story would really want to know more about this character.”
But let’s be honest: while it was nice to see the details of Zach’s backstory, the most important Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII came when we found out how the villain Sephiroth keeps his long hair so luxurious. During the course of the original game, Zack can join Sephiroth’s fan club known as the Silver Elite. sends him emails with little things about their silver-maned hero, including his hair care.
The introductory message after Zach’s enrollment into the Silver Elite reads:
Dear members of the Silver Elite:
In this update, we’re introducing another little thing about Sephiroth – the secrets behind his beautiful long hair.
The hair products he uses are of the highest quality manufactured and supplied by the Shinra Company.
He seems to use an entire bottle of shampoo and conditioner every time he washes his hair.
They are scented with thirteen types of perfume, including rose and vanilla.
Apparently, the smell in the air after Sephiroth tosses his hair changes every day!
I don’t have to tell even the most hygienic gamers what it is a lot of shampoo and conditioner. How does Sephiroth even find time to use so much product in between all his war crimes? Kudos for trying to maintain that beautiful head of hair, but damn, does Sephiroth always have to be this extra?
“I think [Crisis Core’s story] has stood the test of time,” said creative director Tetsuya Nomura, a man with his own flair for the dramatic. “This is something that is highly valued by people. And when I look back at the story and how it’s put together, I can’t find many flaws in it. I think it’s still a very complete and almost perfectly put together story in many ways.”
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion Coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC sometime in late 2022.
