Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier Shows off New Gameplay Footage

Today, at the Square Enix presentation during Tokyo Game Show 2021, Ateam revealed a brand new trailer for Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier. The game is set 30 years prior to the events of Final Fantasy VII, placing players in the shoes of a fresh-faced Soldier candidate who must use their abilities to fight to the death in a battle royale. Check out the new footage for yourself below.

Revealed back in February, Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is a free-to-play battle royal game coming to iOS and Andriod later this year. You can check out an official description below.

In FINAL FANTASY VII THE FIRST SOLDIER, players will embark on an intense battle royale experience where they must fight to be the last SOLDIER standing. To do so, players will use magic and special abilities along with ranged and melee weapons to triumph on the battlefield. Players can choose between various styles, such as Warrior, Sorcerer or Monk, each of whom boast unique special abilities.

In addition to other SOLDIER candidates, players must also contend with ferocious monsters who inhabit the outskirts of the city. By defeating them, players can gain experience needed to level up and unlock new weapons. Classic FINAL FANTASY elements abound in the game, such as rideable chocobos, powerful espers, including Ifrit, to summon and materia, which enables players to cast devastating spells. Players can customize their characters’ outfits and accessories, obtain various weapon and vehicle skins, emotes and more to create their own unique SOLDIER.
