The release of Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis launch draws closer, September 7th, and there are still a few surprises in store for us with this much-anticipated title.
We’ve seen news of the new chapters, but what about our old favorites? Well, don’t worry, there’s new content for the most beloved members of the squad.
Exciting characters will get some dialogue unique to Ever Crisis, with new interactions between the original Final Fantasy VII party, and some between the Crisis Core crew too.
Classic Characters, New Chatter
This is along with the news that you will be able to customize your main screen wallpaper to feature your favorite characters, so you can kick off your session with the best boy, best girl, or perhaps even the best remote-controlled cat.
So what’s it all about? Well, if you haven’t caught our ongoing coverage of the upcoming game, let’s go over some of the basics.
Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is an RPG that tries to amalgamate all the titles from the grand saga that is the Final Fantasy VII games, all into one place.
New Meets Old
You get a look at the iconic stories from the OG Final Fantasy VII itself, prequels like Crisis Core and Before Crisis, and even some new content in the First Soldier arc, which follows a group from the ShinRa company’s elite SOLDIER unit, and a young and pre-insanity Sephiroth. Exciting stuff.
This is all packaged in a style made to resemble a modernized version of the original game. You have cute little 3D characters roaming around the map, replaced with bigger, more detailed, and realistically-proportioned characters in battle.
The battles take a lot from the original Final Fantasy VII too, with a modernized version of the Active Time Battle system, as well as mechanics like Materia and Summons.
