Limited edition FFVII: Crisis Core PSP Slim bundle coming to Japan


Excited for Crisis Core? And the PSP Slim? Then prepare yourself to be double mega super excited (that's almost a Street Fighter title). Square Enix, king of the limited edition handheld hardware, is releasing a very limited edition PSP Slim for its release of Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. The console will be bundled with the game as well as a Buster Sword wrist strap, to make you look extra geeky. The PSP itself will be silver in colour and will feature the Final Fantasy VII 10th anniversary logo as well as some artwork of Zack, Sephiroth and Cloud, presumably drawn by Nomura.

The special edition PSP Lite will be limited to only 77,777 pieces, with each one bearing its serial number on its back. The other interesting thing is that it releases on September the 13th, a week before the PSP Lite itself launches in Nihonland. We expect it to sell out on day one, though we hope it'll still be available when we touch down for the Tokyo Game Show. We would pay ridiculous amounts of money for one of these. Honestly. Ridiculous amounts.

New Crisis Core scans show a couple of familiar faces [UPDATE]

JeuxFrance have some scans of the latest issue of Shonen Jump, which show a page of info about Crisis Core. As well as a clarification of the Japanese release date, September 13th, there are a couple of interesting images. They show characters which we, previously, hadn't expected to be in the game at all. Namely, the Turk Shizune from Before Crisis and our favourite Wutai Flea, Yuffie.

Despite being shy and facing away from us, the character in the picture is obviously Yuffie. If you're still not convinced, then the accompanying writing definitely includes her name. It's official, she's in the game. As for Shizune, we're intrigued to find out why she's such a prominent figure in the FFVII prequels, but never shows up in Final Fantasy VII itself. Presumably we'll find out when we finally get to play Crisis Core.

[UPDATE] Shizune information corrected. She first appeared in Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis, not in Advent Children. Sorry for the error.

New Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core scans [UPDATE]



New scans from Japanese magazine 'Dengeki PSP' offer some fresh insight into Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. While we've seen the first scan before, the other two appear to be new and include details on story and characters. While the meaning of the words alludes us, we can still take great pleasure in staring at the pretty pictures. Speaking of which, the caption for the image above mentions Visual Kei singer Gackt, who did two great songs for Dirge of Cerberus. Will he be doing some more music for Crisis Core? We hope so.

Perhaps the most exciting parts of these scans are the fully CG images of Genesis, who we saw a sneak peek of in the secret ending to Dirge of Cerberus. The game is still looking beautiful and we at PSP Fanboy cannot wait to finally get our hands on it.

Check out the scans yourself over at GameSwank.

[UPDATE] A Japanese friend of mine (thanks Zak!) tells me that the caption in the above image says that Genesis will be modelled on, and voiced by, Gackt. Doesn't surprise me. I thought I saw a passing resemblence when I first saw the picture. Hopefully Gackt will be doing some music for the game, as well as starring in it.

[Thanks Joe]
