Uncerimoniously announced on the official Final Fantasy VII twitter account, The First Soldier is an all-new battle royale game for iOS and Android mobile devices. It'll launch at some point in 2021.

Set thirty years before the events of FF7, it sees players in Midgar as a SOLDIER candidate, fighting for survival. The trailer shows players using classic FF7 abilities, fighting with a range of weapons including firearms and martial arts. We see everything from sniping on high to magic spells.
