Final Fantasy 7 Remake Mako Reactor

While new information on the Final Fantasy VII Remake has been slow to materialize, that doesn’t mean that players won’t get to experience some of it. In a recent post on Square Enix’s official blog it was revealed that the Steam version of the publisher’s free-to-play title Mobius Final Fantasy would be getting an English release on February 6. The most exciting reveal, however, was that a crossover event starring Cloud from Final Fantasy VII would begin the next day.

The Mobius Final Fantasy event will use in-game assets from the PlayStation 4 remake including Cloud’s model. Here’s what the game’s Project Leader Naoki Hamaguchi had to say about it:

“We received 3D resources from Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is currently under development, including Cloud, Guard Scorpion, and the Mako Reactor, which we then set up to fit within Mobius Final Fantasy. We are extremely proud that as of now, there are no other titles that express the universe of Final Fantasy VII as well as Mobius Final Fantasy. We would love for you to play the collaboration event as you look forward to the game’s release.

This is certainly a smart way to both promote their free-to-play title’s new launch on PC, while also giving fans a small taste of what to expect from the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake.

“The scale of development for a PS4 title is significantly larger compared to mobile titles, so it will take a little while longer to showcase the game to everyone,” said the remake’s Producer Yoshinori Kitase. “That said, I am extremely happy to be able to show one aspect of the game in this fashion before the main game arrives. This was made possible because the specifications of Mobius Final Fantasy allow us to utilize the data from Final Fantasy VII Remake as is.”
