Last night at the PlayStation State of Play, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake would be getting a PS5 upgrade as well as a new episode in the form of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. Shortly after however, Square Enix made a couple more announcements, including a Final Fantasy Battle Royale for mobile devices.
Making the announcement on Twitter, Square Enix revealed Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier, which is described as “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.”
The publisher announced a second Final Fantasy mobile game at the same time. Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis is “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,” seemingly similar in vein to the Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.
Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier will launch sometime in 2021, whereas Ever Crisis isn't coming until sometime in 2022. The final announcement made was the fact that the soundtrack for Final Fantasy VII Remake will be making its way to music streaming services – something which has been long requested by fans of the game.
While Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS5 is undoubtedly the biggest announcement, these other titles by Square Enix seem like fun additions to the world of Final Fantasy VII, covering all types of fans.
