New Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion Patch Fixes Mismatched Subtitles and Voice Delivery Timing

Developer and publisher Square Enix has announced that their recently released action JRPG, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, has been patched across all platforms to resolve “instances where voiceovers were not presented in time with subtitles on screen.”

This issue was not too terribly common throughout the game, but it was quite noticeable in specific scenes and could ruin segments of exposition and character interaction. Regardless, it’s nice to see this problem finally fixed.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is a modernized retelling of the original Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a prequel to the game that initiated this beloved sub-series. Players control Zack, a hyperactive and determined SOLDIER yearning to become not only First Class, but also a hero in his own right. Combat utilizes real-time action elements alongside the innovative “Digital Mind Wave” system, used to perform special attacks called Limit Breaks and achieve other notable feats.

Late last year, I wrote an article discussing the prevalent false assumptions people have about Tetsuya Nomura, including how many believe he wrote Crisis Core when he, in fact, did not.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

The Closed Beta Test for Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis has been delayed to Summer 2023.
