Final Fantasy VII fan Svenchu has created a new mod for the recently released Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion on PC that replaces the new English dub with the original PSP version’s voice acting. Although, it’s worth emphasizing that this alteration only applies to in-engine cutscenes, not combat or FMVs. The former change has been confirmed to be coming soon, however.
For those unaware, the new English voice acting for Reunion has been met with mixed reception, primarily regarding protagonist Zack Fair. So, those yearning to experience this remaster with the old voice actors’ audio can now do so. However, Svenchu has noted that a significant bug ceases all voice acting after the story completes in Banora Village during Chapter 2. They have stated that they are working on remedying this issue as soon as possible.
For updates on this mod’s stability alongside installation resources and instructions, check out its dedicated Nexus Mods page.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is a modernized retelling of the original Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a prequel to the game that initiated this beloved sub-series. Players control Zack, a hyperactive and determined SOLDIER yearning to become not only First Class, but also a hero in his own right. Combat utilizes real-time action elements alongside the innovative “Digital Mind Wave” system, used to perform special attacks called Limit Breaks and achieve other notable feats.
