Two brand new Final Fantasy 7 games announced on mobile


Without a doubt, the biggest announcement out of Sony’s latest State of Play event was the free PS5 upgrade coming to Final Fantasy VII Remake, and a new chapter for PS5 players starring Yuffie — but that might not be the biggest Final Fantasy news of the day. Square-Enix just quietly announced two more Final Fantasy VII games: a competitive battle royale game, and a second, more nostalgic-focused FF7 remake.

There’s a reason they weren’t in Sony’s State of Play event, however: they’re mobile games, destined for Android and iOS devices.

Both games are completely unexpected in different ways. Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier marks the franchise’s first foray into the battle royale genre: it’s a competitive multiplayer shooter that takes place 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy VII. Players seem to battle through the streets of Midgar in a competition to be the first of member Soldier, Shinra’s elite fighting force.

The game’s trailer reveals that players will be able to fight familiar monsters and enemies, as well as other players, and may even be able to summon assist monsters, like Ifrit. It’s also very clearly modeled after the version of Midgar seen in Final Fantasy VII Remake.

That’s not all, we’re also presenting two new mobile games!

Here’s @FinalFantasy VII The First Soldier – a battle royale game set in Midgar before the events of FFVII. As a SOLDIER candidate, make full use of your abilities in a battle for your survival.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis, however, looks completely different. Rather than borrowing the visual aesthetics of Remake, this game looks more like an upgraded version of the original Final Fantasy VII. In a sense, it is. Square-Enix says Ever Crisis is a chapter-based retelling of the entire Final Fantasy VII story. In other words, it’s a single-player game that covers the events original FFVII, the FFVII: Advent Children movie, the PSP spin-off Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII.

Although most of the footage in the trailer looks like an overhauled version of the PlayStation Original, Ever Crisis seems to have updated the battle system to look a little bit more like the PS4 remake. Either way, it could be the perfect option for game fans who wanted a more traditional looking Final Fantasy VII remake, rather than a AAA reimagining.

The second mobile game we’re presenting today is @FinalFantasy VII Ever Crisis.

It’s a chapter-structured single player game covering the whole of the FFVII timeline – including the events of the original game and the FFVII compilation titles.
