Last week, a Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – Reunion mod that restores the original English voices was shared online, but some issues prevented the mod from working properly, such as a bug that removed most voices after a certain event in Chapter 2 and more. However, a few days ago, the mod was updated and fixed some of the more significant issues that prevented it from working as intended.
Version 0.2 of the mod fixes an issue that caused the vast majority of story sequences that went past a certain scene in Chapter 2 to be without sound, as well as a variety of crashing issues. In addition, the new version of the mod now fully supports existing save files, allowing players to resume gameplay made in the vanilla version of the game with the English voice acting of the PSP version.
Even with the latest update, the Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – Reunion mod is far from perfect, as the FMVs still feature the new English voice acting. Cutscenes that weren’t voiced in the original will still play with the new voice acting, but modder Svenchu has confirmed that they’re working on these issues, starting with FMV voices that will be fixed in the mod’s next update in a month or so.
While it’s very stable and you can enjoy the story with it, the next update will also include FMVs, which I consider a huge deal, as well as more bug fixes. It will be completed in about a month, since I have prepared final exams, with a full time job and am about to leave.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – Reunion is now available on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch worldwide. Learn more about the game by checking out my review.
