Final Fantasy VII G-Bike announced, inspired by FF VII mini-game

Today Square has announced plans for a new endless-runner-like game called Final Fantasy VII G-Bike. The game is inspired by a racing mini-game found in FF VII.
June 11, 2014

After announcing their plans for a Final Fantasy VI port back in October of last year, Square Enix teased that Final Fantasy VII could happen ‘eventually’. Of course the vague wording made it clear that this wasn’t on the top of their to-do-list, largely due to technical limitations and space constraints.

While we still have no Final Fantasy VII and likely won’t get the full game anytime in the near future, it seems Square Enix is throwing a sort of consolation prize our way with the announcement of Final Fantasy VII G-Bike.

As many FF VII fans likely remember, there was a racing mini-game that could found at specific points in the story, or could even accessed from the Gold Saucer amusement center. G-Bike is inspired by this experience, essentially bringing us an endless runner type game that has various stages filled with boss encounters, chase sequences and obstacle courses.

Final Fantasy VII G-Bike will be free-to-play and will have in-app purchases for expanding the content. As for when it will arrive? No word on that just yet, though Square promises it will have more details in the near future.
