Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII was in the spotlight today as part of the State of Play digital livestream from Sony PlayStation. The Japanese developer announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake would arrive on PlayStation 5, but also revealed a new episode with Yuffie as the main character and a brand new character.
What wasn’t shown during Sony’s event were the two Final Fantasy VII mobile games Square Enix plans to bring out in the coming months. Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier and Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will be released on both Android and iOS platforms.
Little information is available about the games at this time, but Square Enix notes that FFVII – Ever Crisis is “a single-player, chapter-structured experience that spans the entire FFVII timeline.”
On the other hand, FFVII: The First Soldier is a battle royale action game set in Midgar before the events in the original game. Players will use magic and skills against other players in arenas inspired by iconic locations in the FFVII universe.
According to Square Enix, FFVII: The First Soldier will be released in 2021, while FFVII: Ever Crisis will be released in 2022. Both will be available as free downloads with in-app purchases for Android and iOS devices.
