Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis Closed Beta Test Arriving Summer 2023; New Trailer

Square Enix has announced that the highly-elusive mobile title Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will receive its closed beta test in Summer 2023 instead of the previously stated 2022 window.

This delay is quite significant, so hopefully, there’s an emphasis on quality assurance to compensate for it.

A trailer was shared housing this news, viewable below. Several gameplay scenes and story scenarios are showcased for prospective players to peruse:

An official English version of the trailer was shared, viewable below:

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on December 13, 2022.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is set to be a modernized retelling of the original Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a prequel to the game that initiated this beloved sub-franchise.
