Does Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion Have New Game Plus?

Square Enix

Now that the HD remaster of Final Fantasy VII's prequel, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, has been out for about a week, it's perhaps no surprise that many are wondering if the game has a New Game Plus mode.

New Game Plus has been known by several names over the years in various single-player games, but its function has remained the same. Once players complete a game on any difficulty for the first time, New Game Plus allows them to start the game over again on a fresh file with certain perks intact. Essentially, this creates an experience where all the exclusive buffs and items that the player unlocked through hours of gameplay are available at the start of a fresh save, adding another layer of experience and replay value.

Here's a breakdown of whether or not Crisis Core Reunion has a New Game Plus mode.

Does Crisis Core: FF7 Reunion Have New Game Plus?

Players looking to get more out of their playthroughs have plenty to be excited for. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion does indeed have a New Game Plus mode.

As mentioned in-game via the Tutorial (Basics) literature, players can start a new game with certain data carried over after clearing the game on any difficulty. Although there isn't a mode explicitly titled "New Game Plus" in Crisis Core: FF7 Reunion, all players need to do to access the feature is load the save of a playthrough in which they already cleared the game. The game will ask players to choose a difficulty and then throw them right into the opening cutscene once again.

Unfortunately, it does not appear that there is any extra story content involved with the New Game Plus mode, but the carried over data does bring its own pros to the table itself, as mentioned earlier.

The data that will be carried over in Crisis Core: FF7 Reunion's New Game Plus mode are:

  • Level
  • Experience Points
  • SP
  • Acquired Gil
  • Play time
  • Items (certain exceptions apply)
  • Materia
  • Equipment status (certain exceptions apply)
  • DMW progress
  • DMW limit break / limit verge count
  • Buster Sword proficiency
  • Mail (tutorials, useful tips)

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is available now for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam).
