The original Japanese tweet shared by the FFVII Remake Twitter account reads as follows:

“Surely many of you have recognized before the names of the Gun Bull Heads during the sniping section in Nibel Plains.

Several of them are named after Blitzball players in FFX!

Today (July 19) is the day that #FF10 was released back in 2001!


You can also check out the original tweet talking about the Crisis Core FFVII FFX Easter egg here:

The sniper minigame occurs during Chapter 9 on the Nibel Plains, and shortly after the Nibelheim escape section of the game. In it, Zack has to defeat several Gun Bull Head robots before they flee and alert Shinra troops. While the tweet shared the Japanese names of the Gun Bull Heads, the localized English names of the robots coincide with the names of the Blitzball players in FFX.

The previous Crisis Core: FFVII bit of information shared by Square Enix relates to the Turks, and their tasks within Shinra.

Crisis Core: FFVII Reunion is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC.
