4Gamer demo report
What I prepared that day was the Android version under development. In an environment with a similar design to the official version, I experienced about an hour of playing time, including teaching for beginners. The following will bring you a demo report of the author.

The closed beta has also been held, and there have been reports of relevant demo impressions, but this time the trial version has added a new “ninja” style. In addition, this version also corresponds to the game controller, and the trial play is carried out while the game screen is output to the screen.
At the beginning of the game, players will be prepared for a fairly reliable novice teaching, and basic operations or movements can be learned here. Needless to say, shooting or melee attacks, because you can also experience the “magic” that can be performed by picking up “Materia”, and the “Summoned Beast” summoned by “Summon Materia” running towards the wall, “Parkour”, which runs and jumps while jumping, uses the “GIL (ギル)” (money) picked up on the way to purchase props and other unique elements of the game. The design can quickly enter the situation even for novices.
The battle royale will wait for the players to arrive in the lobby and land from the helicopters above the map one by one. Since the helicopters are operated individually rather than shared, they can jump out of the helicopter and land at any place. Since the shadows of nearby helicopters can be seen, it is also one of the basic tactics to confirm the landing positions of nearby players in advance.
Needless to say, the purpose of the game is to survive to the end among all the Shinra fighters participating in the training. Run on the map to prepare weapons, magic spar, accessories and other equipment and props. At the same time, fight against the enemy and survive to the end in the training range that will gradually shrink over time. This is similar to other battle royale-style action games. same.
On the other hand, in addition to the offense and defense using the above-mentioned abilities, the characteristics, abilities, and skills of the Shinra warrior’s “style” (equivalent to the profession in the FF series) are determined by the characteristics, abilities, and skills, as well as the ability to defeat enemies and monsters. Get experience points to gradually upgrade these aspects are very style of this work.
The ninja chosen this time has “Acrobatics (軽業)” (style characteristics) that can jump in two stages, and “Invisibility (かくれる)” (ability) that keeps the enemy invisible for a period of time. The movement speed will be at a certain speed when damaged “Escape (Escape)” (skill) that rises in time. Can play with opponents with flexibility and agility that other styles do not have.
The invisibility does not completely disappear, it will show a group of weak flame special effects in the eyes of the opponent. But even so, if you can fool yourself in the battle royale, you must be able to show off in all kinds of situations.
In the closed test, some players responded that one of the styles “Warrior (ソルジャー)” was too strong, and the development team also re-adjusted the overall balance of the style.
For example, in this version, clicking the squat button twice can use “dodge roll (ドッジロール)”, which enables it to make a melee attack and fire a counterattack.
This game for smartphones only uses clicks to operate the interface. If it is transferred to a game controller, it will feel a little complicated because of the use of many buttons, but the operation itself has no sense of contradiction. It is also expected to be compatible with game controllers when the official operation starts. This is also very exciting.
At present, after receiving the feedback of the closed test, it is in full development towards the official operation. It is very much looking forward to the next time to play.
