Square Enix has confirmed that the PS5 remaster of Crisis Core FF7 Reunion will run at 4K 60 FPS, following an earlier announcement in July. That resolution and frame rate may not be too impressive given that the original game was on the PSP, but it does follow through with the developer’s intent to make it close to the graphical quality of the FF7 remake. Square Enix has previously described the game as a “true remaster” with updated 3D models, full voiceovers, and new music arrangements.

In comparison, the PS4 Pro version of the game will run at 4K 30 FPS, while the regular PS4 version will run at 1080p 30 FPS. The Xbox Series X version will match the PS5’s frame rate and resolution, while the Xbox Series S version will run at 1080p 60 FPS, though only after a Day One Ver 1.0.1 patch is applied. The Nintendo Switch version will only be handle the game at 720p 30 FPS. As a caveat to these figures, though, all the frame rates that Square Enix have put forward in the tweet posted above are the maximum values for a variable frame rate.
As expected, PC players on Steam will be able to push the graphics for Crisis Core FF7 Reunion even further to 120 FPS. The screen resolution is only described as “display-dependent” so it’s unclear what that high frame rate is tied to. Fortunately, we’ll find out soon enough, as the game’s release date is December 13.
