The latest update for Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier introduces the new Mentor System. Bahamut Fury from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core will also be appearing on the training field in standard matches for a limited time.

Mentor System

Seasoned candidates can now scout for new players to take as their mentees. To be qualified as a seasoned candidate, two conditions must be met. The first is that players must have played at least 15 matches already. Second, they must have had their accounts for at least seven days. The latter is likely a measure to prevent people from abusing the new feature.

Seasoned candidates can take up to 10 new players under their wing. They can search for a new player’s name or ID, send a request, and once the request has been accepted, a mentor-mentee partnership is formed. With the new system, the developers have raised the friend limit to 110.

The Mentor System grants great rewards for both the mentor and mentee. Additional rewards are granted to mentees who will join a certain number of matches.

The developers are hoping that this new system will encourage more people to play FF7FS.

Here Comes a New Challenge

Bahamut Fury

Bahamut Fury will be available from March 17 to March 31. This boss is quite different as it is much stronger and tougher than regular Bahamut. Players inside Bahamut Fury’s field will be unable to damage each other. Instead, they must work together to defeat this extremely difficult boss.

In addition, special challenges are available until Bahamut Fury leaves at the end of the month. Players who can defeat him successfully will also earn a special title.
