    I’ll assume it’s gonna have multiple playable characters, like other endless runners.

    Better start saving up coins for Tifa.

    • 하세요

      I still enjoy Sonic Rush to this day here and there, so I’m cool with this.

      If it includes Tifa, day 1 for me.

  • Kango234

    So much for P4 taking the title of most milked RPG…

    • planetofthemage

      That game was never even close to FF7 in terms of milking.

      • 하세요

        I already gave a comparison chart on how they were actually equal, but now 7 has one more. I’m not going to re-argue it though. What’s done is done.

        • lackofstyle

          wait, gotta see this chart, where is it?

        • Shippoyasha

          To be fair for FF7 and Persona games, they do have an overarching world that was bigger than their original games (at least with FF7 expanding upon its fairly sparse in-game world in FF7). Especially with Persona titles, there is going to be a lot of crossover potential.

      • C_Diamond

        Sorry, but they are close.
        Didn’t SMT revealed like 3 projects that involves persona 4 not so long ago? After that another P4 anime project.

        • Rayhan PromisedGallery

          there will be probably P4A anime soon…

  • Kroz

    I always said they should make a racing game based of the highway fight in advent children…..this is the next best thing

  • kaotron

    Is it just me or does it look like recycled a lot of scenes from advent children

  • LegacyOfWu .

    I am honestly pleasantly surprised by this. It looks gorgeous and fun. I hope they really do use FF7:AC music, as well as from CC/FF7. Never expect much from smart phone games, but this one’s hitting all the right notes for me.

  • DesmaX

    Looks pretty good

  • revenent hell

    If this was released back in the time period I first played FFVII I would be all over it.
    Now a days and being a free to play game kind of don’t give me very much hope of it being fun or great looking. I have to admit most FTP games I have played aren’t terribly impressive and eventually irritate me because of the endless pay walls you always hit (some worse than others). I get that’s how they make their money and what not but some are just so bad with it.
    As far as SE goes I kind of just think its a milking of the “FFVII” name and not much more at this point….I could just be terribly bitter and who knows this might actually look and be fun to play when its released.

  • Godmars

    So is this going to stay on iPhone or no wait. Missed the last sentence.

    And where are the microtransactions.

  • Fox

    Is today April 1st?

  • 하세요

    Woah, I was NOT expecting to be this. F2P? Hells yeah I’ll give it a shot.

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

      Free 2 play eh? On a second though I’ll be wary about it.

      • 하세요

        For MMOs, I’m against F2P, but I’m fine with it on mobile games, especially something like this.

        • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

          Weeell if you say so, can’t say how bad or good are f2p on mobiles but always heard bad things about this plan.

        • midgard229

          against free to play mmo’s? i agree except when its Vindictus. Check the game out. pay parts are only cosmetics and the game lots of content and amazing gameplay, graphics, physics and even a story! lol

    “Character Developments”

    I like where this is going :v

    • Warboss Aohd

      reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal Classy humie.

    • http://www.spaghetti.com Kaisenex

      scuse me while i sleepturbate

  • Raine

    “Character Developments”

    Oh, I know where this is going :v

    • Godmars

      Going to take a guess and say when they say “characters” they mean series monsters Cloud will be fighting.

  • Vash bane

    interesting that updated cloud

  • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

    This is milking VII but… we didn’t have something VII in a while, features the original Cloud, one of my favourite Gold Saucer minigames, got graphical updates and gameplay tweaks and… it’s mobile but for once it doesn’t look that lazy so… Im getting it!

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

      Also really liking the Crisis Core feel it has with the music and graphic style.

  • Namuro

    I seriously thought that they were going to use the PS1 style graphic for some reason. Anyway, this looks fantastic!

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    for once a mobile game that have my attention

  • Slickyslacker

    Hey, I’m looking forward to it…and I don’t even own a phone at the moment.

    SE still cares a lot about VII, and this is a little bit of an indicator.

  • Stuart Nisbet

    all of the assets are from CC. amazing.

  • Quan Chi

    Messed up how they throw this in our faces and yet don’t remake the whole ff7 to look like this xD

  • http://twitter.com/crxuchilbara MegamMix

    I can see @ 19 seconds all the persons from the previous article un-rolling there eyes and going “huh?”

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I’m calling it, this is an experiment to try new minigames for a future FF7 remake that is being developed in secrecy, next the snowboarding one, then the figting one… LET ME DREAM!

  • jack

    I’m into this.

  • Suzaku

    Actually on board with this, even if it’s just an endless runner. Agito, too.

    I’ve gotta say this, as a tablet owner: Square Enix is basically the only dev making worthwhile gaming experiences on Android and iOS. ATB was atrocious, yes, but their other mobile titles are pretty much the best games in those appstores (even if most are ports). FF1-6, FFT, FF Dimensions, Chaos Rings 1&2, TWEWY, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger. Good stuff, especially next to Flappy Bird and Bejeweled.

    I’m looking forward to having some more games on my mobile device.

  • Göran Isacson

    That’s… not that bad, actually. I am officially kinda down for this.

  • I see like this 。゚+.ღ(ゝ◡ ⚈᷀᷁ღ)

    Wait I am so confused…….I was defending this earlier an most people were hating on it now their……well acting like there not.Now it seems like everyone might give this a try all I can think of is tsundere’s but whatever the more the merrier if everyone is able to enjoy a game to some extent that’s fine it means it’s doing it’s job as a game.If it sounds like I’m being a butt I don’t mean it that way.Well I’m looking forward to this hope everyone can enjoy it for what it is (sorry if this message got to long lol).

  • WhyWai

    such fancy PR words for a mobile endless runner type game…

  • http://hanzoadam.tumblr.com/ Hanzoadam

    Actually looks really good tbh,

    Would be better if you didnt play as cloud though ¬_¬

    Maybe Zack as an unlockable character or Yuffie would be nice

  • Land of Green Pasture

    Cool bike bro, now gimme mah Blitzball

  • Marc

    Killing monsters while riding a bike? What’s next? Card games on motorcycles?
    Oh wait….

  • aizen310

    Final Fantasy VII remake CONFIRMED!!!
    Half-Life 3 CONFIRMED!!!
    The cake is a lie!!!
    Why the exclamation marks!!!

  • kenshee

    Wow see now games like this would make for pretty excellent companion apps for once (haven’t been interested in any until this one).

    And it’s free?

    … and not used as an advertisement for any upcoming final fantasy 7 project?
    Now that last line seems fishy to me :p

    Though really, They can’t be working on a ff7 remake… They have too much on their plate as it is no? Or maybe it just feels that way with XV’s past ‘^^
    A new game like crisis core would be really cool though.

  • Ronldbx6

    Closest thing to a FF7 remake, supoort it.

  • Rabbit

    I wonder how well it’ll control… I’ve never played a driving game without a controller.

    • AndyLC

      On mobile, some use gyroscopic tilting to good effect, though there’s always touch screen swiping too.
