The latest update to Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier includes a new mechanic for players to utilize. The “mimic materia” in FFVII The First Soldier will allow for players to transform into Cloud Strife. Not only will this empower the player who has used the Mimic Materia to transform into Cloud, but they will have access to some of his signature abilities as well. However, in order to obtain the Mimic Materia, players will need to take down a challenging enemy. [Thanks, Gamer!]
Players can obtain mimic materia can by fighting anomalies that spawn in glitch fields. After defeating the spawned enemy, players will obtain the special materia and effectively transform into Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud Strife after using it. Players will have increased move speed and a higher jump for a limited period of time. Additionally, they will also be able to use Cloud’s Limit Breaks, Cross Slash and Braver.
Reports to #FF7FSGlitchField conclude that the presence within the fields has a large sword equipped on its back.
