The latest issue of the Japanese gaming magazine, Famitsu, has an update on the much anticipated Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. The main character won’t be Cloud this time around. Instead, the player will play as Cloud’s close comrade Zack who died in the original game while trying to kill Sephiroth. Famitsu also pointed out that Angeal will make an appearance.
Of coarse, Sephiroth will be in the game as will Tseng. Sephiroth is the main villain as usual and Tseng is the a high ranking officer among the Turks.
The game will play out just like a regular role-playing game. However, Director Hajime Tabata did note that it will feature a different gameplay system that is still being tweaked for balance. Supposedly this new gameplay system will make Crisis Core different from what you would expect.[via IGN]
