'Mobius Final Fantasy': Cloud & Sephiroth Featured In 'Final Fantasy VII Remake' Collaboration Event
"Final Fantasy VII" characters Cloud and Sephiroth appear to be two sides of a single coin. Whenever one of the characters is featured in a game, the other one is most likely to follow. Square Enix recently announced that their mobile game "Mobius Final Fantasy" will feature the two characters in a special "Final Fantasy VII Remake" collaboration event.
How the two fit in with the game's lore has yet to be revealed by the publisher. Meanwhile, a Japanese trailer for the mobile RPG has been revealed and features both characters fighting against one another, as reported by Game Rant. The character models apparently look updated to most likely reflect the upcoming remastered RPG. The smartphone game's own protagonist Wol is also seen fighting alongside the "FFVII" hero.
The "Final Fantasy VII Remake" crossover event is scheduled to begin this week. It will also reportedly feature the city of Midgar. The scheduled event will apparently be featured in three installments throughout the month of February. Sources indicate that players will receive items like the Aerith Echo and the Masmune weapon. Cloud and Sephiroth will also make their appearance within the Square Enix RPG. A new job will also be included as well as a few collaboration cards, says Thumb Sticks.
To celebrate its latest milestone of gaining 10 million registered users, players will reportedly receive log-in bonuses and special gifts like Growstars and Summon Tickets. Fans are apparently excited to experience the special event, which features the series most iconic characters. However, reports claim other players would have also wanted to see more heroes and villains from other "Final Fantasy" installments.
Sephiroth and Cloud appear to continue Square Enix's campaign to promote their upcoming "Final Fantasy VII Remake," which fans speculate to launch its first installment this year. It also seems like the "Mobious Final Fantasy" crossover event is another one of the publisher's marketing tactic to build up more hype for its most-awaited remaster of their RPG classic.
