Final Fantasy VII News: From PlayStation 5 To Mobile Announcements [VIDEO]

As with the PlayStation overview two days ago, we now have a Final Fantasy VII overview.

Let’s start with Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, which was announced for the PlayStation 5. Let’s see the enhancements first: „Immerse yourself in the city of Midgar like never before, with improved textures, lighting, and background environments. Players can switch between two game modes: “Graphics Mode” prioritizes 4K high-resolution graphics. “Performance Mode” prioritizes smooth action at 60 frames per second. Capture and share your memorable moments from the game with a fully customizable “Photo Mode.” Enjoy immersive battles by using the DualSense wireless controller, with its haptic feedback integration, and enjoy dynamic bike racing with its adaptive triggers. New difficulty settings for “Classic Mode” provide new ways to play. Jump into the action faster with optimized loading times.” These upgrades apply to the PlayStation 5 patch of Final Fantasy VII Remake, too.

If you own Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 4, you can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 update for free, but it doesn’t mean you get Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. Here’s why: it „also includes a brand-new episode featuring Yuffie as the main character. In this new adventure, play as ninja Yuffie Kisaragi as she infiltrates the shadowy Shinra Corporation to steal a powerful materia and restore glory to her homeland. Play alongside new characters and enjoy an expanded gameplay experience featuring multiple new combat and gameplay additions, bringing a new perspective to the Final Fantasy VII Remake story that cannot be missed. Players, who purchased Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 4 and upgrade to PlayStation 5 can purchase the new episode featuring Yuffie as a standalone download from the PlayStation Store.” Yes, you need to buy the episode separately if you bought Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 4.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will be available in physical format, too, but there will be a Digital Deluxe Edition, which „comes with a digital mini soundtrack featuring songs, such as “Descendant of Shinobi,” and a digital art book that includes concept art and character sheets. Customers who pre-order the Digital Standard Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will receive the pre-order bonus Cacstar weapon for use in the new episode featuring Yuffie.”

Here are a few quotes from the FAQ: „Your purchase of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade on Playstation 5 does not entitle you to play Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 4. […]The new Yuffie Episode is optimized for PlayStation 5, so it is not available on PlayStation 4. […] You can carry over save data from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5. An update patch that supports carrying over PlayStation 4 save data will be available before the PlayStation 5 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is released. After the patch has been applied, an option will appear on the title menu for the PlayStation 4 version to carry over your save data. An internet connection is required to carry over save data to PlayStation 5.”

Tetsuya Nomura, the co-director of Final Fantasy VII Remake (Part 1) told Famitsu in an interview that he won’t be the co-director of Part 2. Instead, his colleague, Naoki Hamaguchi will take over as the director: „Today, we announced three Final Fantasy VII titles, but as I mentioned earlier, I’m personally working on more projects now than ever before. Since we were able to solidify the base gameplay in the first part of Final Fantasy VII Remake and can see what we need to improve upon in the future, Naoki Hamaguchi will be entrusted as the director on the next part, while I’ll be involved as the creative director on all things Final Fantasy VII, including the Remake and mobile titles. My basic involvement in the work won’t significantly change, so please give me your continued support.” Square Enix didn’t go into further detail about Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2.

And finally, the two announcements. The first one is Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis for iOS and Android. Here’s the game’s overview: „Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is a chapter-structured single-player experience which will cover the whole of the Final Fantasy VII timeline, including the events of the original game along with all the Final Fantasy VII compilation titles, as well as new story elements, penned by Final Fantasy VII Remake story and scenario writer Kazushige Nojima, surrounding the origins of SOLDIER.”

And finally, we have Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, also for iOS and Android. It’s the most WTF of them all: „Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier 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.” A BATTLE ROYALE game!

The release dates are the following. Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will arrive on June 10 on PlayStation 5 (the base game’s PS5 upgrade will also launch this day); Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis comes in 2022 on iOS and Android; and Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier launches in 2021 on iOS and Android.
