Tokyo Game Show 2022 has passed. Some presentations, such as the Xbox one, wowed viewers with a well-organized show that succinctly covered a wide variety of games. Others, such as Square Enix, split their presentation into multiple broadcasts with speakers who didn’t give a real introduction to the games. Crisis Core FF7 Reunion was one such game that fell victim to this.
The three comedians handled the bulk of Square Enix’s presentation duties, covering Forspoken, Crisis Core, and Star Ocean. They skimmed through sets of demos, offering trite observations through monotonous translators.
The Crisis Core demo showed two segments. The first was an arena fight against two Oni-like creatures. The second was more of a compilation of shots showing character interactions, summons like the Cactuar and Bahamut, and the slot system.
Overall, Crisis Core looks very good. It’s a mix of original PSP gameplay with updated graphics that almost match Final Fantasy VII Remake. For those who have never seen the prequel, it will fill in a lot of gaps, especially with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth coming out next year.
