[News] [PSP]

Square Enix has put a price on peace. No wait, I mean they put a date on Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. I swear it really is prequel week in the gaming industry. For those that don't know Crisis Core is the prequel to Final Fantasy VII that follows the adventures of Cloud Strife, Sephiroth and others before the events of FFVII hence the moniker, prequel.

Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII  will be released across all PAL territories in Spring 2008, exclusively on the PSP.
Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII is the highly anticipated prequel to the biggest selling Final Fantasy of all time, taking players on an exhilarating adventure filled with grandeur, excitement, characters that captured the hearts of a generation and many new secrets to discover hidden within the world of Final Fantasy VII.

With awe-inspiring visuals, full 16:9 widescreen presentation, an engaging battle system, and additional gameplay challenges not included in the original Japanese version, fans and newcomers alike can experience the world of Final Fantasy VII from an all-new perspective.

Set seven years prior to the events of the first Final Fantasy VII the Shinra Company is rapidly increasing its influence through its monopoly on mako energy and military might. With the burgeoning city of Midgar as its base and symbol of prosperity, Shinra is on the verge of establishing absolute dominance over the world.

SOLDIER is a group of skilled combat operatives within Shinra. The elite within the group — those strong enough to be deemed SOLDIER 1st Class — are respected and idolized by the citizenry.
Zack is a young SOLDIER 2nd Class who aspires to become a 1st. He spends his days carrying out assignments under the guidance of his 1st Class mentor, Angeal. During an operation in Wutai, a large number of SOLDIER member, led by 1st Class operative Genesis, go missing. The severity of the situation prompts Shinra executives to deploy even more SOLDIER operatives in hopes of bringing an end to the war with Wutai—and conducting an investigation into the mass desertion. The ones assigned to the mission are Zack, Angeal, and the 1st Class hero who is known the world over as Sephiroth...

What truths lie behind Genesis's disappearance? What secrets bind the three SOLDIER 1st Class operatives? For Zack, a cruel and fateful struggle awaits...
