Well… this was a surprise. Square Enix have announced Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier, a multiplayer-orientated battle royale title that takes place in the Final Fantasy VII universe. Sounds pretty wild, right?

Check out the reveal trailer below:

Final Fantasy VII The First Solider is a battle royal action game set in Midgar before the events of Final Fantasy VII. As a SOLDIER candidate, the player will make full use of their magic and abilities in a battle for their survival.

I’m not really a big fan of mobile multiplayer titles so I’m hoping that this might eventually make its way to consoles – especially since it looks like it’s going to bring a lot of unique ideas to the genre. Will it actually be any good though? Only time will tell…

Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier is coming to mobile devices in 2021.
