Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier; a battle royale game for Android and iOS.
When Ever Crisis and The First Soldier were trademarked [1, 2], many speculated if they could be related to Final Fantasy VII prequel Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. This could not be further from the truth.
As stated by the Final Fantasy VII Remake Twitter account, Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier is “a battle royale game set in Midgar before the events of FFVII. As a SOLDIER candidate, make full use of your abilities in a battle for your survival.” The teaser also states this is 30 years before the events of the main game, and that the player themselves will become the first SOLDIER.
