As mentioned before, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will feature full voice acting, according to Square Enix. Of course the main characters will all talk, but the NPCs will all speak as well. Since speaking with NPCs is important to 100% the game, you will be talking to NPCs quite often. There’s a new video showing an example of what these new segments will be like.

In the video that Square Enix shared on Twitter, it shows a clip of Kunsel talking with Zack. Kunsel is a SOLDIER who is Zack’s best friend. In Japanese, Riki Kitazawa voices him. Kitazawa previously appeared as Arthur in Fire Emblem: Fates and Nero tol Scaeva in Final Fantasy XIV. Crispin Freeman voices him in English. Freeman’s past roles include Kirei in the Fate series and the various Roy Harpers in Young Justice.

Here’s the Crisis Core FFVII Reunion voice acting example:

Though the PSP version of the game had lots of NPCs to talk to, not everyone had voices. In the scene above, for example, Kunsel did not have a voice. Most characters outside of main ones only communicated in written text.

Every cutscene, side quest, and incidental scene will be fully voiced in Japanese and English. In the blog post detailing this on Square Enix, Square Enix also introduced other changes to Crisis Core FFVII Reunion. There is a new soundtrack arrangement by Takeharu Ishimoto, who wrote for The World Ends With You. There is also an update to the battle system and DMW to make things flow faster and feel more “snappy.”

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will come out for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC on December 13, 2022. The original Crisis Core FFVII is available for the PSP.
