Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis Introduces Upgrades, Summons & Materia in New Trailer

Square Enix has shared a new trailer for their upcoming mobile title Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, highlighting enhancements and growth. Players can enhance their weapons with items, and upgrading beyond the weapon’s level threshold requires more highly specific items.

Materia is gained from using materials for synthesis recipes, but like a typical mobile game, this process takes real-life time. Item usage can reduce wait times. Character stats can be increased by unlocking nodes using certain materials and character memories.

Lastly, Summons earn new abilities from clearing pact missions. They can then be strengthened after binding by using specific items, too.

Pre-registration is available via the official website.

The title recently achieved 1.2 million pre-registrations.

You can view the enhancement and growth trailer for Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis below:

We also shared our thoughts on the latest trailer.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is the sequel to the first entry in this ongoing Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy effort. Throughout the announcement trailer, players got a tease of the Nibleheim flashback with Cloud and Sephiroth and Zack carrying Cloud, seemingly from either the end of Crisis Core or the end of Remake.

The latest trailer from Summer Games Fest showcased quite a bit more, with a relatively open world, team attacks, Chocobo riding, and fascinating story developments that have truly made this entry diverge from the original game’s timeline. Still, familiar areas like Cosmo Canyon and the Chocobo Farm are also present. Oddly, Square Enix calls this a completely standalone entry, which comes off as too blatantly untrue, even for marketing purposes.
