Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core - new trailer [Update 1]

Crisis Core is undeniably one of PSP's most hotly anticipated games. This exclusive title takes place before the events of the original PS1 classic, and it will have players unearthing more secrets from the beloved universe. Although players will take primary control of Zack, fans will love seeing many familiar faces, from Cloud, to Sephiroth, and even Aeris.

This new trailer reveals more of the game's incredible graphics, gameplay, and dialog-heavy storyline that should keep yaoi fanfic writers busy for years to come.

More incredible Final Fantasy VII screens to drool at

Warning: the following screenshots of Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core are not suitable for those who are pregnant, nursing, suffering heart disease, or have high blood pressure. Why? You may simply faint at how gorgeous these shots, available at Jeux-France, are. Ripped straight from Famitsu, these screenshots showcase quite possibly the best graphics on PSP so far. Hopefully, it'll play just as good.

Crisis Core scans look good; game 70% complete

Jeux-France, lovers of illegal magazine scans, has posted up some beautiful images of Square's upcoming Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. The battle page (pictured) certainly impresses. Now that the game is 70% complete, hopefully, it won't be too long until we get some direct-feed footage directly from Square.

Yatta! Atarashi FFVII Crisis Core scan!

Crisis Core, the upcoming PSP-exclusive prequel to Final Fantasy VII had disappeared from the public eye for a while. Now it's back, and my desire to play it is ever increasing. The graphics look to impress and the "Power Surge" feature teases us with gameplay possibility.

[Thanks, Jamal!]

Jump for tons of new FFVII:CC scans [Update 1]

PSP owners and Square fans will be ecstatic to see that Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core is shaping up quite nicely. IGN pointed out that this game "looks better than most PS2 games out there," and looking at the scans from V-Jump, I'd have to agree. The character models look especially nice, considering how well-animated they appear. The gameplay looks fast, maybe even emulating the incredibly over-the-top anime-styled action sequences of Advent Children. I never had high hopes for Dirge of Cerberus, but Crisis Core seems to be nothing short of a must-have.

[Update 1: A ton of new scans are available on Jeux-France today. Look after the cut to see some shots.]

More FF awesomeness: Tactics features multiplayer & FFVII kicks butt

An enthusiastic reader, Pal, sent us a great tip about the upcoming Final Fantasy Tactics for PSP. Not only will the game come with new cutscenes and new job classes, the game will also feature ad-hoc multiplayer. Many Tactics fans have been waiting patiently for a way to the game with others, and it appears that the PSP version will deliver. If Square-Enix considered Infrastructure multiplayer, I'd imagine that our pal might simply implode.

Finally, if you weren't convinced of Crisis Core's awesomeness, read IGN's latest preview:
"From a strictly gameplay standpoint, Crisis Core seems solid, with a fast pace and the potential for a good mix of action and menu-based battle systems ... Crisis Core looks better than most PS2 games out there. During cinematic scenes, the character models are detailed and fully animated. Battles contain screens with double digit enemies, and giant bosses. All that, and full voice, without any pauses for loading! ... Personally, I think all the "Compilation of Final Fantasy VII" products released so far have been second rate. But Crisis Core looks so good that it could turn things around on its own."

Jump Festa: Final Fantasy on display

1UP gets mad props for getting footage from Japan's Jump Festa, where the hotly anticipated Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core and Final Fantasy Tactics: The Lion War are on display. A trailer showcasing the game's beautiful new cutscenes is on display, and can be seen after the cut.

Crisis Core's demo is available for attendees to play, and it seems like FF fans need not worry about the game's quality: "Combat in Crisis Core takes place in pseudo-real-time, not unlike Final Fantasy XII, though there's only one playable character (FFVII fan favorite Zack), and the action is a lot more active. During battle you find yourself constantly mashing the attack button to pull off combos or backstab enemies for extra damage, but you can dodge and defend as well, and you can use the L and R buttons to cycle through your items and magic attacks... With the stunning visuals and interesting battle system we saw today, it seems to be headed in the right direction."

Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core trailer

Enjoy! With a playable version of the highly anticipated PSP-exclusive FFVII: Crisis Core hitting Japan very soon, it makes sense that a trailer would eventually make its way to YouTube. The trailer is from the Tokyo Game Show, but due to Square Enix's no-camera policy, the rest of the gaming public hasn't been able to see it until now. As you'll be able to see in this glorious trailer, Crisis Core seems to push the PSP to yet another graphics echelon. The character models are stunning, as are the animations. The brief moments of gameplay that are featured look exciting: certainly a very different approach to the Final Fantasy universe.

[Thanks, Joel!]

Time to move to Japan; FFVII playable at Jump Festa

Two words, when paired together, can make any gamer weep. Final and Fantasy. The upcoming PSP-exclusive Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core will be playable to the public at Japan's "Jump Festa," which will take place on December 16th and 17th at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. Gamers will be able to learn more about Zack's adventures in this FFVII action RPG prequel. Will Square-Enix deliver the goods on their first game on the PSP? If you want to find out for yourself, you better start saving up: a trip to Japan certainly won't be cheap.

New Loco Roco & Final Fantasy VII demos to arrive in time for holidays

We PSP fanboys love to play demos. We've been blessed with a plethora of demos for Loco Roco, but it seems like they're not done quite yet. A key observer on the PlayStation forums noticed that YourPSP described plans on releasing a Christmas-themed demo of Loco Roco to supplement the Halloween demo that came out about a week ago. Considering how the game is about eating everything in sight, wouldn't a Thanksigiving themed demo also be appropriate?

Another noteworthy demo to come out later this year is the highly anticipated PSP-exclusive Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. Jeux-France reported about a week ago that an issue of Famitsu reveals the producer's intentions to have a playable demo available by the end of the year. If it comes around the time of the other Loco Roco demo, it seems like PSP fanboys will have a lot of free demo playing on their hands this holiday season.

New scans of FFVII reveals my inability to read Japanese

Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core is one of my most anticipated games, even though it's surrounded by complete mystery. (Of course, I'm one of those types that pays attention to anything that has the words "Final" and "Fantasy" together.) I know many of you are just as desperate for new info and screens on this game as I am, and any miniscule bit we can find only makes us hunger for more. has discovered two new scans, filled with copious amounts of kanji. There are two new screens to admire (pictured above), and they look absolutely amazing (assuming they're in-game, and not CG).

If you'd like to act as a translator for us, take a peek after the cut and help us decipher these scans. Maybe they'll reveal thrilling insights into the game. Or, maybe they'll give you tips on how to make your hair as snazzy as Cloud's.

TGS 06: FFVII Crisis Core trailer eyes-on

One of the most wanted, and most mysterious PSP games out there has to be Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. Little to nothing is known about this prequel to the uber-popular Square RPG, except that you'll play as Cloud's buddy, Zack. There's a new trailer for the game at Tokyo Game Show, but until the video gets leaked, 1UP has given us some great eyes-on:
Based on the roughly five seconds of gameplay footage on display (which is actually generous; it may have been four), Crisis Core looks like a single-player action RPG. It's extremely fast-paced, in fact, with Zach dashing around combat areas, slashing foes with a sword and racking up combo hits. Over-the-top seems to be the order of the day; attacks rack up damage in the triple digits, and the action is preceded with Zachs squaring off for a fight with Neo-Bahamut.
Sounds good to me! According to the preview, the graphics seem to be stunning. The action-packed approach to Final Fantasy seems exciting to say the least, even if it hasn't translated very well in previous efforts. Once we find a trailer, we'll post it here on the Fanboy.

Gamespot lists its most anticipated TGS 2006 handheld games
I think I can actually begin to feel the excitement of the Tokyo Game Show emanating to me through the internet. And it seems Gamespot feels the same as they've listed their most anticipated games to be shown at TGS.

They listed four handheld games they are most excited about are Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Lumines II, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, which just so happens to be the only Nintendo DS game to make the list.

Take that you blasted Nintendo fanboys!
