Final Fantasy VII’s G-Bike Mini-Game Coming to iOS and Android
One of the most memorable parts of Square Enix’s (back when they were still just Squaresoft) iconic PSX RPG, Final Fantasy VII, was the G-Bike minigame, which is essentially a racing mini-game that has a Bike-riding Cloud trying to escape from the Shinra Building while being pursued by Shinra troops. Similar to Road Rash, you had the option of hitting your pursuers with a melee attack (using the big-arse Buster Sword) or just evading them completely.
Fans who remember the G-Bike game fondly and want a standalone version (because accessing it again through the Gold Saucer minigames is too much of a hassle) will be glad to know that the game will be making its way in standalone form to iOS and Android devices as Final Fantasy VII G Bike.
Far from being a straightforward recreation of the original minigame, Final Fantasy VII G Bike will feature HD graphics, new obstacles as well as the ability to jump, slide, and switch between various bikes and customize Materia. The game is scheduled to come out this fall in Japan. There’s currently no word on whether it will reach other countries.
