Square Enix has announced two new Final Fantasy games for mobile devices.
The first of which is Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier. It is to serve as a prequel to the acclaimed FF7 and will be set in Midgar years before the events of the main game.
Moreover, The First Soldier will be a battle royale title, with players taking on the role of Soldier candidates (Shinra's Elite Fighting Force). However, it is not just about guns in this mobile game as players will have a range of abilities to use as well, as is custom with a Final Fantasy title.
Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier will come to mobile devices via Google Play and the App Store.
Meanwhile, the second mobile title to be announced is Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis.
However, this game is a chapter-structured single-player experience covering the entire Final Fantasy VII timeline.
"An episodic return to FFVII's world with a nostalgic visual twist," says the trailer.
Final Fantasy VII was first released in 1997 on the PlayStation, though its popularity saw it get ported to later consoles. It was later remade for modern consoles in 2020.
Square Enix certainly looks busy on the mobile front this year, as Lara Croft was confirmed to jump on to mobile devices in Tomb Raider Reloaded while action-adventure game Just Cause is also coming to iOS and Android devices later this year.
