Square Enix is moving pretty quick on Crisis Core as the game was only announced in June during the Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary stream, meaning the game will be released within six months of its reveal.
Crisis Core was originally released for the PlayStation Portable back in 2008, but gained new relevance when Final Fantasy 7 Remake seemed to include scenes from the game centred around Zack.
The character, who’s been a part of the Final Fantasy story since 7 was first released in 1997, can also be seen in the trailer for Remake’s sequel, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
In our 8/10 review of the original game, IGN said: “Crisis Core is a great game and, barring a few minor issues here and there, will not disappoint.”
