Japanese superstars MAN WITH A MISSION have become boss monsters in FINAL FANTASY VII THE FIRST SOLDIER. Players will battle the five Ultimate Lifeforms in a special in-game event available to play now until June 2nd 2022. The battles will be soundtracked by ‘The Soldiers From The Start’, a brand new track from MAN WITH A MISSION created especially for the game.
Upon starting the event, players will receive a special ‘FLY AGAIN’ emote, which will allow characters to recreate the signature moves for ‘FLY AGAIN’ performed at MAN WITH A MISSION live shows. Further play of the event will reward players with additional special MAN WITH A MISSION themed t-shirts, caps, guns, vehicles and more for their characters.

MAN WITH A MISSION will be releasing their brand new album Break and Cross the Walls II on Wednesday (May 25th) via JPU Records. Ahead of the release they have released two brand new songs including the emotive anthem ‘Rain’ as well as huge rock track ‘Blaze’, which is also the opening theme of the TV anime Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Special Edition.
Many more songs from the forthcoming Break and Cross the Walls II have been selected for syncs across film, TV, gaming and sport as they demonstrate their dominance as modern-day Japanese cultural icons.
‘More Than Words’ is the main theme song for Radiation House: the Movie, while ‘All You Need’ featured song in the game app A.I.M. $ -All you need Is Money, ‘Perfect Clarity’ featured in the movie Hinomaru Soul-Behind the Scenes Heroes, and ‘Tonight Tonight’ which was the theme song for the X Games Chiba 2022 Presented by Yogibo.
The album is the companion work to Break and Cross the Walls I, released last November, whose cover showed the five wolves playing chess; the dominant shades – black and white – representing the conflicts occurring all over the world at this time.
On Break and Cross the Walls II, the album reflects a world bursting into colour – from conflict to harmony, with a striking visual image – five wolves in paint-splattered, multi-coloured jumpsuits creating a new world of hope and peace!
In addition, a Japan-only limited edition live acoustic CD set featuring six songs specially selected by the band members, will be available to the first lucky international buyers as an exclusive private streaming link.
