Square Enix has published a new tweet regarding Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion that has several fans speculating due to a specific wording choice. The tweet primarily states how the graphical quality of this updated release is remastered, with a provided comparison shot of the incoming release and the original PSP version.
However, the end of the tweet says they hope veteran fans and newcomers alike will enjoy this “prequel to #FF7R.” That hashtag specifically correlates to the Remake/Rebirth projects, making many fans now believe that Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion will play out differently from the original game in vital ways, causing it to better represent the storytelling choices of what has occurred in Remake, and teased in Rebirth.
Of course, it is absolutely worth noting here that this hashtag choice could not equate to Reunion changing story elements since it could have simply been purposefully done to reach a broader, modern audience. However, when viewing the official tweet below explicitly stating that #FF7R strictly means Rebirth, it’s difficult to rule out the possibility of narrative points changing.
