Update: According to Square Enix on Twitter, Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis is “a chapter-structured single player game” which covers the entire timeline of the series. Events from the base game and compilation titles are included.
You’d think Square Enix dropping Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade for the PS5 on fans would be enough. But following Sony’s State of Play presentation, it also revealed other Final Fantasy 7-related projects. One of those is Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis, coming to iOS and Android in 2022. Check out the trailer below.
The title is stated to include the “entire compilation of Final Fantasy 7” and more, from the base game, Before Crisis: Final Fantasy 7 and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 to Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children and even Dirge of Cerberus. What’s even more interesting is the gameplay. Final Fantasy 7 appears to have had its visuals updated while maintaining the retro aesthetic.
However, it’s battles seem to mirror the visual style of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, complete with summons and whatnot. It sounds bizarre, until the trailer ends with what seems to be Zack Fair on board a train. Perhaps more content featuring the Crisis Core hero? We certainly have more questions than answers at this point. Stay tuned for more details in the coming year, hopefully.
The second mobile game we're presenting today is @FinalFantasy VII Ever Crisis.
