Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier Valentine's Day skins

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is the Final Fantasy-themed mobile battle royale we didn’t know we needed. With heaps of elements and characters from the series we’ve come to know and love, combined with fast-paced, modern combat, all accessible on the go, it’s already living up to our expectations.

The game released back in November 2021 to great success, and now, Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier season 2 is on the horizon, with plenty of fresh content to enjoy. On top of that, we’re being treated to a 25th Anniversary livestream later today, along with a bunch of awesome Valentine’s Day-themed goodies, so we can all share in that sickly-sweet love, even on the battlefield.

For more information on this epic, gun-toting, chocobo-riding battle royale, you can check out our guides to all the Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier classes and Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier materia to get you off on the right steel toe-capped boot.
