This week, Square Enix announced its plans for a PS5 version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, however, the studio also announced two new mobile games coming to both iOS and Android set within the Final Fantasy universe.
The first game is titled Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier. This game will be a Battle Royale action game set in the world of Midgar before the events of Final Fantasy VII. As a soldier trainee, you will use your arsenal of magic and abilities in a fight for survival.
Below is a trailer for the upcoming action game that releases later in 2021. The game has that classic Final Fantasy aesthetic while also including the intensity and sheer randomness of modern Battle Royale games.
The other game that Square Enix announced was called Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, which is an episodic chapter-structured single-player experience that covers the entire timeline of the game, including the events of the original game and the compilation titles.
This “remake of a remake” is written by Final Fantasy VII Remake writer Kazushige Nojima. I have added a trailer below. Unusually, the graphics resemblances both the original PlayStation title from 1997 as well as the remake.
Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is slated for release later in 2020, while Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is coming sometime in 2022. Both will be launched on iOS and Android as be free-to-play titles.
Which one are you looking forward to the most and what features would you like to see included?
