Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion review

System: Switch
Release Date: December 13, 2022
Developer: Square Enix / Tose
Publisher: Square Enix

In the 25 years since Final Fantasy VII originally graced PlayStations around the world, this monumental RPG has amassed a legacy that few other games have, and has fittingly been rereleased on a wide range of platforms; it is still, even today, the best-selling entry in the Final Fantasy series of all time. The same can’t quite be said for its many spin-offs, which have typically been trapped on their original systems, but that changes with the launch of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion. Once a PSP-exclusive, this action-combat title serves as a comprehensive prequel to the events of the original game, and its remastered version attempts to bring the visuals closer to the style of the recent Final Fantasy VII Remake. But how does this enhanced version of a 15-year-old game hold up on Switch?

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion frame rate resolution

Digital Foundry has taken a closer look at Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, analyzing technical detail like frame rate and resolution. This includes some information specific to Switch.

Here’s the full rundown:

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Temple of Osiris delayed

We have a brief update on the Switch versions of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, with both titles having been delayed to 2023.

The games were previously announced for Nintendo’s platform in October 2021. They were originally planned for this year, but 2022 is almost over and there haven’t been any status updates.

Chocobo GP Mythril

Square Enix has announced that it is ending support for Chocobo GP in terms of content updates and prize pass levels, and on top of that, sales of Mythril have been discontinued.

The Switch racer just started up Season 5 this week which brought about Midgar as a new track, Croma and Volg as new characters, and more. We have the patch notes here for version 1.4.0 those that missed it.

Chocobo GP update 1.4.0

Original (12/14): Square Enix has announced a new version 1.4.0 update for Chocobo GP.

The highlight is the inclusion of the new Midgar course. There are also character adjustments, fixes, and more.

The full patch notes for the Chocobo GP version 1.4.0 update are as follows:

Square Enix has announced that Triangle Strategy has now sold over 1 million copies worldwide. The game originally launched exclusively on Switch back in March of this year, but saw a PC release via Steam last October.

This new milestone includes physical shipments and digital sales of the game across both the Switch and PC versions, although no breakdown by region is provided. The game had initially sold roughly 800,000 copies within two weeks of its launch on Switch, so it’s nice to see the title breach the 1 million mark.

Dragon Quest Treasures Yuji and Pekotte

Dragon Quest Treasures has started up new code distributions for a special King Slime (Yuji) and Killing Machine (Pekotte) that are directly tied to Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii and VTuber Usada Pekora respectively.

Yuji, a King Slime voiced by Horii himself, has three lines on each of its cheeks. These lines also appear in Horii’s slime sketches. In the game, Yuji can learn various useful attacking abilities like Water Tower.

Earlier this month, ESRB ratings for the Final Fantasy I-VI Pixel Remasters appeared online. Today, December 18, marks the 35th Anniversary of the series, and Square Enix have now officially announced that the games will be launching physically and digitally on Nintendo’s console in Spring 2023. Digitally the games will be available to purchase separately or in a bundle, and standard and collector’s editions of the games will be available to purchase physically from the Square Enix Store.
