Crisis Core – Final Fantasy VII – Reunion Released today it’s a solid remake/remake of the beloved PSP title. But at least one panel in the new game has something extra in it: the Getty Images watermark, Which means that the in-game board is created using the preview of the captured image Direct from website for that service.

In our review published earlier todayHowever, we noted that the remake is a faithful adaptation of the original PSP game, complete with the flaws that arise from being overly dedicated to being a perfect prequel. And like the original, while the first half or so of the game is solid, the ending leads to a “disappointing conclusion”. It’s a great looking remake though. However, we’ve noticed that the new visuals come with a new bug, in the form of a watermark left on at least three instances of the in-game panel.

During the eighth chapter of the game, you will enter Shinra Palace. In this luxurious and beautiful home, you will find many luxurious paintings hanging on the walls. Look closely and you will discover that these are real paintings. Look closely and you’ll clearly see where Square Enix got the art from.

Yes, that’s an old Getty Images watermark in the middle. I was able to track down the exact painting that Square Enix captured using our Getty account. It is a piece by artist John Crowther Ludgate Circus in London in 1881.

It looks like whoever took this image from Getty—and probably didn’t pay to license it, since the watermark is still there—stretched it out and cropped most of the top of it to make it fit in the frame. This is not a one-time mistake. The resulting board appears at least three times in this area of ​​the game complete with the Jetty watermark. Excuse me!

A screenshot shows where the Getty watermarked panel appears.

The watermarked panel appears in at least three different places.

This isn’t the first time a big Square Enix RPG has shipped with the wrong watermark. Kingdom Hearts III It also included a watermark during one cutscene. However, this was a “blink and you’ll miss it moment” not an easy-to-find panel that appears multiple times and can be clearly seen by anyone paying attention. If you want to see this bug for yourself, I’ll go to the palace sooner rather than later, as I imagine Square Enix will fix it soon.
