Some releases have understandably flown under the radar amid the hype for Bethesda Game Studios’ Starfield. Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis is one of them, releasing on September 7th for iOS and Android. However, it’s performed pretty well, with the official Twitter account reporting over two million downloads.
It’s a strong start for the mobile title, which essentially “reimagines” the Final Fantasy 7 saga as a free-to-play title while adding gacha elements. The art style during exploration is reminiscent of the older titles but with sharp new visuals. You can also assemble parties of different characters and variants, with combat utilizing the Active Time Battle system.
In addition to Before Crisis, Advent Children, Crisis Core Reunion and Dirge of Cerberus, the mobile title includes an original storyline with Sephiroth. It’s after Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier (which has shut down) and leads into Crisis Core. Time will tell if Ever Crisis has long-term appeal, so stay tuned for more updates.
