Crisis Core Trailer: Time to Cry Like a Girl

0

What is it about Final Fantasy VII? We all try to be cool. "Overrated," we scoff amongst our enclave of pals as we mock Cloud on forums and draw comical mutilation fanart of Aeris (SPOILER: SHE DIES). And yet, I defy you to watch this trailer and not become inexplicably excited. Not to feel the tightening of the pants, if you will.

It's a montage of cutscenes from the upcoming Crisis Core for PSP, releasing September 13th in Japan, with release dates anticipated sometime thereafter for just about everywhere else. There's also a little gameplay footage in there, which looks rather nice. As the game is a prequel to FFVII starring Zack and based on the events in Nibelheim prior to the canon with which we're already acquainted,  you'll see many familiar characters here -- Cloud, Aeris, Sephiroth and the Turks, to name a few, along with some new guys; a veritable buffet of very pretty, intense-looking men.

The game is stirringly taglined, "Men who shed tears for their own fate, and for their friends." Maybe you, too, will shed manly tears as you watch this; maybe you won't. Go ahead and try to resist the wave of chills and stirring nostalgia, especially at the trailer's end. Just don't pretend you're not buying a PSP for this game.

I'm a game writer, which means I spend all day in a bacchanal of fabulous nerdiness. My fave games are Ys I & II, Phantasy Star 2 (!!) old Sonic (not the emo RPG crap), anything on Turbo Grafx, Z... more + disclosures
