Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion

Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion name

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion creative producer Tetsuya Nomura has explained the game’s name in an interview with Everyeye.

Obviously the title is extremely similar to the original, but now has the added “Reunion” bit. According to Nomura, “Reunion” has important meaning when it comes to Final Fantasy VII’s lore and it’s a way of connecting it with Crisis Core. The term is also being used to help describe what the game is given how it’s not clearly a remake or a remaster – it’s more of a middle ground.
