The new Crisis Core FFVII Reunion user interface takes more directly after the aesthetic style and layout used in Final Fantasy VII Remake. It also takes advantage of the extra screen space afforded by home consoles. Artwork of the character is more prominent too. One holdover is the visible Shinra company logo, though, as a reminder of the context of the adventure. Players can also sort and filter materia by their color and type, as well as see their statistical gains at a glance.

Check out a screenshot from the PSP version’s menu below, for comparison.

Earlier posts about the user interface in Crisis Core FFVII Reunion highlighted some of the changes to controls enabled by using a traditional console gamepad layout. On the PSP, players didn’t have access to a second analog stick, limiting some of the control options. Now that the game’s on newer platforms, the camera can be controlled freely. A brief gameplay video posted on Friday highlighted the way this smooths out combat.

The Crisis Core FFVII Reunion Materia system will work similarly to the original game’s. Various Materia will unlock different abilities to use in combat, ranging from health-restoring spells to damaging magic. Passive boosts like additional HP are also available, as are new abilities, like a spinning sword attack. Materia Synthesis will also be useful for upgrading Materia and enhancing their effectiveness.

Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch on December 13, 2022.
