The Crisis Core remake’s battle system is going to be more like the Final Fantasy 7 remake’s one

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion was recently announced at the FF7 25th anniversary livestream, since when Square Enix has been dripfeeding nuggets of information about how the project’s being approached. Most distressingly, for fans of vaguely pachinko-like roulette systems, they’re taking the shears to the game’s unique battle system (opens in new tab).

The short version: Crisis Core on PSP paired third-person combat with a luck-based slot machine. It’s a slightly absurd but delightful system, and definitely one of my favorite aspects of the original.
