Square Enix gives up on The First Soldier
In a drip, drip, drip pattern, Square Enix has slowly been porting Final Fantasy games over to Android. Their latest release onto the platform, Final Fantasy 7, should be great news for fans of the franchise. For those too young to remember it when initially released in ’97, this is the game that brought us Cloud Strife, who is hired by AVALANCHE, which is an eco-terrorist group.
One of the bigger announcements for mobile was that Square Enix would be bringing Final Fantasy VII to iOS. However, what about Android gamers, many of whom are big Final Fantasy fans and want Final Fantasy VII to play? Well, unfortunately nothing was announced for Android.
Yesterday we reported what turning out to be the first in a series of ports of the mini-games found in the original Final Fantasy VII game. Unfortunately we didn’t have any real screenshots or a trailer of any kind to show our readers what Final Fantasy VII G Bike for Android will look like. Today Square Enix has solved that problem by releasing an announcement trailer for everyone to check out.
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII is coming to Android later this Fall, at least for folks who live in Japan at first. Actually not all of Final Fantasy VII will be released, we just wanted to get your hopes up and then crush them like ours had happen to them when we got this news. You see Square Enix is releasing a Final Fantasy VII title onto Android but it is called Final Fantasy VII G Bike.
Alright so once in awhile with these awesomeness posts and other ones of this style (Humor, Fail, etc) we post about something not Android related. This is one of those instances and we can’t help ourselves either. Being a Final Fantasy fan (especially FF7) and a player of Minecraft (even if it is Pocket Edition), this recreation of Midgar from Final Fantasy VII is just pure awesome.
