FFVII’s G-Bike Coming To Mobile Platforms

June 10th, 2014 by Tony Garsow

Via the newest issue of Famitsu, Square Enix will be reportedly bringing Final Fantasy VII‘s G-Bike to mobile platforms this autumn. You’ll remember this minigame in first as a thrilling escape from Midgar and then as an attraction in Gold Saucer. Developed in conjuction with CyberConnect2, you’ll be able to jump and slide, as well as customize your bike in some way through materia. We don’t yet know if the game is a direct lift from Final Fantasy VII‘s code or inspired by it.

More Gold Saucer minigames are reportedly heading to smartphones as well.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy Curtain Call‘s Ichirou Hazama is the games producer, Final Fantasy VII director and scenario writer Yoshinori Kitase is attached as executive producer, and Final Fantasy VII character designer, battle visual director, and scenario writer Tetsuya Nomura will also be working on the game.

Final Fantasy VII G-Bike will be available on iOS and Android platforms. It will also be free to play “muryou” game — which will likely include microtransactions. The Super Dunk basketball mini-game in Wonder Square and the Submarine minigame are also being considered as mobile candidates.

Update: Square Enix’s official announcement comes today with new images and a trailer. Final Fantasy VII G-Bike will have weapon and item collection aspects and will feature Cloud’s unique fighting style in full 3D stages.

    Well that’s a turn-up. At least they didn’t announce it at E3 or anything. That would really have been going too far. I still have a certain confidence in them, and since I don’t regard VII in any godlike regard, I think I can tolerate a popular mini-game being modernized and turned into something you can do on the go. It actually sound fun, and perfect for the platform.

  • HAHAHA!! Is this one of their “TBD” announcements? Not entirely unexpected, I must say. Was Nomura making this instead of XV, is that why they didn’t have anything to show at E3? Still milking the ol’VII, eh? That’s Square-Enix for ya! Always giving the fans what they want!

    I think they may announce it in a more official capacity over the course of the week.

    I grow tired of mobile mini games.

    The minigames in FFVII are cool. If you don’t like them, fair enough,
    but I’m pretty sure most people that played it would’ve really enjoyed
    them, particularly the bike one. This is just that, with more features,
    and portable. Of course, people like to put on their cynical face
    whenever they hear the world “mobile”. If this was a minigame on the
    3DS, people would lap it up (e.g. those various minigames Nintendo put
    out for £6 each a while ago, or Wario Ware, etc).
