Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (クライシス コア ファイナルファンタジーVII Kuraishisu Koa Fainaru Fantajī Sebun) is an action role-playing game being developed by Square Enix for the PlayStation Portable. The game is a prequel to Final Fantasy VII and is also the fourth entry to the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series, which also includes the games Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, as well as the CGI movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and the anime, Last Order: Final Fantasy VII. Production is being overseen by Yoshinori Kitase, the director of the original Final Fantasy VII, with Hajime Tabata serving as director. Tetsuya Nomura will be responsible for the character designs.
Very little information about the game has been released (initially announced to be released last August) as of now except that it will be on the PSP. The game will mainly focus around Zack, a 1st Class SOLDIER and Cloud Strife while he is a lowly Shin-Ra Guard. Another character also present in the game is Aeris Gainsborough as her voice is heard in the trailer of the game. This game appears to take place around the events of Nibelheim outlined in Last Order: Final Fantasy VII.
The game's tagline: "A story of three young men and one young woman bound for destiny's core."
