Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will be available on Android & iOS
Upon launch, Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will be available to play for free on Android and iOS devices. The upcoming closed beta that Square Enix has recently announced will also be available on the same devices.
A recent interview of Tetsuya Nomura, the game’s creative director, with Famitsu, reveals that FF7: Ever Crisis will be free-to-play with gacha mechanics. Its monetization system will revolve around weapon unlocks and there will be plenty of content that wasn’t available in the original game.
Will Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis be available on Nintendo Switch?
Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will only launch for Android and iOS devices. It won’t be available on Nintendo Switch or any other platform upon launch.
I'm pretty positive Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis is going to end up on a Nintendo console once its complete form is released on Mobile.
Depending on how long the Roadmap of this game runs for, that could be the Switch, or it could be the next console. Who knows?
