Shortly after Square Enix announced a surprise upgrade for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, called Intergrade, for PlayStation 5, the company dropped an even bigger surprise: a battle royale game set in the world of Final Fantasy 7.
Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier is coming to Android and iOS devices in 2021. The battle royale game will feature the kind of gunplay you’d expect from a multiplayer shooter, but The First Soldier ups the ante with magic spells, Final Fantasy summons, and Chocobos on the battlefield.
According to the first teaser trailer for Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier, the Shinra Electric Company is looking to bolster its military forces and develops the Soldier program — then apparently puts them to the test in a big multiplayer fray, which is where The First Soldier comes in. The battle royale game is set before the events of Final Fantasy 7, Square Enix said in a news release.
