Square Enix has provided a real roller coaster for fans of the Final Fantasy 7 universe recently. Looking forward to the presentation on the occasion of the game's 25th anniversary, they were wondering when the second part of Final Fantasy VII: Remake will launch. In the end, we will have to wait for the follow-up until 2023 or 2024, and PC players will have to wait even longer, because the game will initially be released only on PS5. An unexpected hit of the presentation was the announcement of a remaster of Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, which originally came out in 2008 on the PSP.
The announcement showing the remaster of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII has been received with great enthusiasm from fans of the universe and at first glance you can see that we are not dealing here with the usual texture upscaling. Particularly noteworthy are the character models, which do not look as good as those in the remake of FF7 but nevertheless represent a huge leap in quality from the PSP original.. On ElAnalistaDeBits' YouTube channel you can watch a direct comparison, which compares frames from the original Crisis Core and the remaster. Check it out for yourself.
That's not how I remember it
You know that feeling you get when you go back to one of your favorite games years later and find out that it looked much nicer in your memory than it actually does. I've played Crisis Core years ago, and was fascinated by both the graphics and the atmosphere, which at times reminded me of what I felt as a kid when I was playing Final Fantasy VII and was fascinated by how Sephiroth took down the dragon in the Nibel Mountains with one slash of his Masamune. It wasn't until I saw the visual comparison that I realized how much the visuals had aged.. When the remaster is available, I'll be sure to explore Zack's story once again, but this time with much nicer visuals. I'm also secretly hoping to be delighted by the mobile Ever Crisis.
