Ever Crisis Details

At the Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary event, Square Enix made several exciting announcements that had fans eagerly anticipating the future of the beloved franchise. One of the most intriguing reveals was the upcoming mobile version of the Final Fantasy 7 story, titled "Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis." This mobile game aims to provide players with a fresh perspective on the iconic Final Fantasy 7 narrative while incorporating gameplay elements from the original game.

Similar to the concept behind Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition, Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis will feature the main storyline from the original game. Players can expect to dive into the engaging world of Final Fantasy 7 with enhanced graphics and optimized controls specifically designed for mobile devices. The mobile version will retain the charm and essence of the original game, allowing both existing fans and new players to experience the legendary tale.

Crisis Core Reunion Announced

Adding even more excitement to the event, a remaster of the beloved prequel to Final Fantasy 7, Crisis Core, was announced. Originally released on the PSP, Crisis Core offered players a compelling backstory to the events of Final Fantasy 7. Unfortunately, not everyone had the chance to experience this gem due to the limited availability of the PSP.

Now, Square Enix has decided to give players a second chance to dive into the world of Crisis Core. The remastered version of the game will be made available on current-gen systems during the winter of this year. This exciting announcement has sparked a wave of nostalgia among fans, who are eagerly awaiting the chance to relive or experience this vital part of the Final Fantasy 7 lore for the first time.

Undoubtedly the most significant announcement of the event was the reveal of the highly anticipated Part 2 of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake saga, titled "Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth." The event showcased a breathtaking new trailer for the upcoming installment, leaving fans in awe of what is to come.

Tetsuya Nomura, the Creative Director of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, shared a heartfelt message during the broadcast. He revealed that there are currently four Final Fantasy 7 projects being developed in parallel, each offering a unique experience while staying connected through the high-quality depictions of the Final Fantasy 7 world and its characters. This ambitious undertaking demonstrates Square Enix's commitment to expanding and enriching the Final Fantasy 7 universe.

Nomura goes on to explain that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is being designed to be enjoyed by both newcomers to the series and longtime fans. The game will present a fresh experience as Cloud and his friends embark on a new journey outside of Midgar, offering new players an excellent starting point to immerse themselves in the world of Final Fantasy 7.

The Creative Director also alluded to the intention behind the naming of both the first title, Remake, and the second title, Rebirth, expressing his excitement for the eventual reveal of the third title and the overall direction the series will take. The development of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has been progressing rapidly, and work on the third title has already begun. Nomura himself is actively involved in the development process for all four titles, showing his dedication to delivering an exceptional gaming experience.

While it was announced that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be released exclusively for PlayStation 5 next winter, fans should not fret as they wait for its arrival. Square Enix has promised a continued stream of exciting content and projects throughout the 25th Anniversary celebration to further expand the world of Final Fantasy 7. This includes other games and experiences that will undoubtedly immerse fans in the rich lore and captivating universe they have grown to love.

In conclusion, the Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary event left fans clamoring for more with its remarkable announcements.
