Crisis Core Reunion Keeps Sephiroth’s Ridiculous Hair Care Routine Canon

A Crisis Core remaster was one of many announcements made to mark the anniversary of Final Fantasy 7. A better-looking, better-feeling version of the game will launch on various platforms before the end of 2022, so a full year prior to Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. That means more details about what to expect are being revealed all the time, including news that Sephiroth's harcare routine will remains unchanged.

Producer Mariko Sato spoke to Eurogamer about all thing things that will remain the same in Crisis Core Reunion, and all the things that will be different. The best news of all is details regarding Sephiroth's bizarre but well-loved haircare routine will remain completely unchanged. All incidental text from the original Crisis Core pertaining to how the villain keeps his hair silky smooth will remain intact.

For new Final Fantasy fans who have no idea what this is all about, Zack was able to join a Sephiroth fan club in the original Crisis Core named Silver Elite. Part of that service included emails filled with interesting facts about the antagonist, one of which detailed Sephiroth's elaborate haircare routine. “The hair products he uses are of the highest grade, made and supplied by the Shinra Company,” the email revealed.

But wait, there's more, and it gets so much weirder. “He seems to use one whole bottle of both shampoo and conditioner every time he washes his hair. They are scented with thirteen kinds of perfumes, including Rose and Vanilla.” You read that right. Sephiroth used an entire bottle of shampoo and conditioner every time he washes his hair. An expenisve and time consuimg practice that makes it hard to fathom where he found the time to do just about anything else, and he's a busy guy.

Sato revealed unlike Remake which deviated from the original game quite a bit, Crisis Core will be a largely faithful remaster. Its purpose is to fill in new FF7 fans on who Zack is and where he came from since he has been introduced a little earlier in Remake than he was in the original game. The battle system has been changed siginificantly compared to the PSP game though and will be menu-based.
