Final Fantasy 7 is one of my favorite games, and hearing that the lore is being expanded with multiple projects is so exciting I can’t sleep! It’s hard to believe that Final Fantasy 7 has been around for 25 years!

June promises to be very exciting with an upcoming broadcast, but that’s the tip of the iceberg!

What is the Final Fantasy 7 Compilation?

The Final Fantasy 7 Compilation is a collection of media that expands the universe and narrative of Final Fantasy 7. There will be a broadcast this June with more information, but details about the broadcast are still unknown.

Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier will have a collab event with the rock band Man With A Mission or MWAM until June 2, 2022. The five band members will appear as boss battles on concert-like fields. And get to listen to The Soldiers From The Start as they fight.

Players will be able to get limited MWAN items and emotes, including the band’s signature wolf heads. Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier is available on mobile devices and is a competitive action shooter with RPG elements.

The First Soldier is set 30 years before Final Fantasy 7 and is free to play.

Want to experience the entirety of Final Fantasy 7, including Before Crises, Crises Core, Dirge of Cereberus, and Advent Children the movie? Then wait for Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis, which will come out on mobile devices in September 2022.

Ever Crisis is planning to release monthly episodes and will feature loot boxes. In addition, it will have the 1997 version’s Active Time Battle System and include the backstory behind The First Soldier.

Tetsuya Nomura, the creative director, says that Ever Crisis is an alternate remake of Final Fantasy 7. Fans will also get to see the childhoods of various Final Fantasy 7 characters.

What is the best way to experience Final Fantasy 7?

The order to play/watch Final Fantasy 7 is The First Soldier, Before Crisis, Crisis Core, Final Fantasy 7 the remake, Advent Children, and Dirge of Cerberus. But, you can purchase the original Final Fantasy 7 on the Switch, XBOX, Playstation, and Steam.

I will wait for Ever Crisis and see how much the lore grows!
