Clearly one remake project for Final Fantasy VII isn't enough, said Square Enix. How about a second one - this time for iOS and Android platforms?
Ever Crisis (because there is never a time without a crisis!) is slated to be a single-player chapter-structured narrative RPG that is technically also a remake of the beloved 1997 original but with a few twists.
Firstly, new chibi-like models for characters are utilised in the field, whereas in battles they are swapped out for more proportionally realistic and high definition models very similar to that of the console Remake game. Secondly, Ever Crisis will cover not only the events of FFVII itself, but also games from across the Compilation:
- AC - Advent Children
- BC - Before Crisis
- CC - Crisis Core
- DC - Dirge of Cerberus
- EC - Ever Crisis (there will be new story elements penned by Kazushige Nojima)
This does mean that this will also be the first time that anything to do with Before Crisis is brought over or adapted into English, because the original was a mobile game with its own narrative exclusive only to Japan.
