Original ‘Final Fantasy VII’ Skins and Events Coming to ‘The First Soldier’ Battle Royale Game

This year, Final Fantasy VII celebrates its 25th anniversary. In honor of 25 years of greatness, its battle royale spin-off game, Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is hosting a special, limited time Final Fantasy VII event that will feature original polygonal skins, banners, accessories, and lots more.

From February 16, 2022 to February 28, 2022 the event will feature the following new content:

  • Polygon FINAL FANTASY VII Characters – Players can obtain event-limited character skins based on the original FINAL FANTASY VII polygon designs for Cloud, Aerith, Tifa, Barret, Red XIII and Chocobo, with more coming soon.
  • 25th Anniversary Collaboration Events – For a limited time, players who defeat event monsters on the battlefield will obtain special reward boxes and collect data pieces that unlock event-limited collectibles. Mission clears will also reward Premium Shinra Pack Tickets (FF7) and data pieces.
  • Character Skins & Accessories – Event-exclusive skins and accessories will be available for free for a limited time, including Shinra SOLDIER and Cloud Dress character skins, and a Buster Sword back accessory.
  • FINAL FANTASY VII Banners – Players can obtain thematic FINAL FANTASY VII banners to display next to their character name.
  • Celebratory Login Bonuses – Players will receive event login bonuses and collect Premium Shinra Pack Tickets (FF7), which can be redeemed for a chance to obtain the collaboration store items, simply by logging in daily during the campaign period.
  • FINAL FANTASY VII App Revamp – For a limited time, the FINAL FANTASY VII FIRST SOLDIER game icon, in-game home screen, and UI will be revamped similar to the look of the original FINAL FANTASY VII. In addition, players will hear iconic FINAL FANTASY VII music when entering battles.

It makes so much sense for Square Enix to utilize their Final Fantasy VII battle royale game to celebrate the 25th anniversary, but I can’t say I expected the polygonal skins to be in the game. I absolutely love it. It’s jarring but that’s half the fun. Plus, if the pictures above are any indication, it looks as it Sephiroth, Yuffie, Cait Sith, Vincent, and Cid will all be joining the event at some point, as well. My hope is that at some point this event will just be a ton of polygonal characters running around in a modern-looking environment.

Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is out now on Google Play and the App Store. The Final Fantasy VII event is underway now. Season 2 of The First Soldier will kickoff on February 28, 2022.
