Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, a mobile battle royale set in Midgar, will be released this month. Square Enix had previously stated The First Soldier would be released in November, as reported by IGN, but thanks to the new opening cinematic that debuted on YouTube today, we know the exact release date: November 17. That’s less than two weeks away and what better way to get excited about the dubs you’ll hopefully be getting in the battle royale than by watching the new opening movie for The First Soldier. Set 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy VII, The First Soldier is about, well, the first soldiers that the Shinra electric Company began using on the outskirt battlefields of Midgar. As expected, the opening movie is completely CG and it doesn’t really feature anything to do with the actual battle royale aspect of The First Soldier, save for the last few seconds that show some characters jumping out of a helicopter in a very battle royale fashion. You can pre-register for the battle royale now and doing so could get you some pre-registration rewards, determined by how many people actually pre-register: 300,000: Chocobo Egg 500,000: Shinra Mask Skin 770,000: Shinra Bike Skin 1,000,000: Shinra Utility Vehicle Skin 2,000,000: Shinra Helicopter Skin The 75-player Final Fantasy VII battle royale will be released in 12 days on iOS and Android devices on November 17. While waiting for that, check out the latest details we learned about Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier and then read about Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, the other Final Fantasy VII-centric mobile game Square Enix announced earlier this year.
