Square Enix Explains Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Virtual Reality System

Square Enix shared brand new trivia on the official Final Fantasy VII Remake social media account detailing information about Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion’s in-game virtual reality device. The Virtual Reality System (VRS) is a one that creates a virtual space and collects the wearer’s physical data as they take on simulated missions. SOLDIERs are required to wear them for training missions and when they take the SOLDIER class promotion exam.

Zack Fair, the protagonist of Crisis Core: FFVII, is seen wearing the VRS at the beginning of Crisis Core: FFVII during a training mission in Midgar. This training mission Zack undertakes ultimately has him facing off against a virtual Sephiroth. Sephiroth’s virtual data is so powerful that it breaks Zack’s sword.

This virtual reality system can be seen throughout Crisis Core: FFVII in different training rooms in the Shinra Building. VRS is also referenced in the descriptions of various optional in-game missions that take place in simulated spaces. Notably, Professor Hojo’s mission quest line heavily utilizes simulated spaces to have Zack fight a variety of difficult foes whose strength has been amplified for experimental study.

Final Fantasy VII Remake also features a Virtual Reality (VR) arena where Cloud Strife can take on various VR missions from a strange boy named Chadley who appears in the Sector 7 Slums. These VR missions allow Cloud to earn Summon materia and items to be used in battle.

Square Enix has been consistently sharing trivia about Final Fantasy VII, including information about Tifa’s role in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, Rufus Shinra’s outfit, and Cloud’s dress in Final Fantasy VII Remake.

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