In case you’re unfamiliar, Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier is a mobile battle royale that’s set in Midgar before the events of FF7. So yes, it’s an FF7 mobile battle royale in the vein of something like PUBG Mobile.
The game’s premise is described as:
“Fight to join the ranks of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit in this high-octane battle royale shooter, infused with RPG elements from the FINAL FANTASY series.
Choose a combat style, such as Warrior or Sorcerer, and eliminate your rivals by any means necessary, be it gun, sword, or magic.
Defeat monsters to earn experience points and gil, call upon fan-favorite summons such as Ifrit to fight for you, and catch a chocobo to dash and glide across the battlefield.”
