Square Enix’s latest mobile title, Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis launched on 7 September 2023, and while many players around the world are enjoying their time in the game, fans from Southeast Asia are sadly left out.
Unfortunately, Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is currently not available in Southeast Asia regions but that does not mean players are not able to play the game. Through this method, Southeast Asian fans can still download the game and enjoy their adventure in Midgar. Without further ado, let’s get to the guide.
Step 1 – Switching Store Region
The first step to accessing Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis in Southeast Asia is by switching to different regions in your Google Play Store or Apple App Store account.
First of all, players will need to switch their Google Play Store or Apple App Store account to a region where Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is available, for example, Japan or the United States of America.
After successfully switching your account regions, you can then proceed to download Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis from the corresponding stores.
For Android users, you can also install Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis by downloading an Android Package Kit (APK) file and unpacking it on your phones.
However, be careful when downloading any APK files as it may not be the safest method to get access to a game since there are suspicious websites that may provide pirated ones that are infected with malware.
For iOS users, note that if you are currently subscribed to any services in the Apple App Store, you will need to unsubscribe them first or you will lose the subscription after changing your account region.
Since some people may find this a hassle, we would recommend simply registering for a new account in your desired region.
Step 2 – Using a VPN
Although many games can be played after downloading from a different region, Square Enix has seemingly IP-blocked Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, preventing players from playing in certain countries.
As such, players would have to download a virtual private network (VPN) beforehand to change their IP address to access the Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis servers.
Once you have a VPN installed, simply open the application and switch your IP address to regions where Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is available such as Japan or the United States of America.
And there you have it, the way to play Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis in Southeast Asia countries like Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, and others.
However, be reminded to stay cautious as accessing the game and playing this way may lead to some risks such as account bans.
