Features guns, melee combos, and summons like Ifrit.
It’s raining Final Fantasy 7 announcements for series’ fans. Along with Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade for the PlayStation 5 and Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis for mobiles, Square Enix also unveiled Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier. It’s another mobile title but releases this year for iOS and Android. Check out the first trailer below.
As a battle royale title – yes, seriously – Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier is set 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy 7. It sees Shinra beginning to form SOLDER and having an all-out free for all between potential candidates. As one of those candidates, you must survive, venturing through Midgar and eliminating the opposition.
Third person and first person views are available along with your standard firearms. However, players can also abilities like magical barriers and even get in close for melee combos. You can even have summons like Ifrit on the battlefield, fighting alongside you, and battle PvE foes (including the dreaded Scorpion Sentinel). Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
