If you’re one of the numerous gamers who are eagerly waiting for the remake of the Final Fantasy 7 to be released, then you should consider yourself lucky. The game is coming to PS4 very soon, as it will mark the remake of a legendary 23 years old game.
However, you should still bear in mind that Final Fantasy 7 remake won’t be launched as a full version pretty soon. Only a first part will arrive soon and it will cover what happens in Midgar, while another will most likely be released in the next year.
Both Sony and Square Enix have confirmed that the remake version for Final Fantasy is arriving tomorrow for PS4 consoles, April 10. Those willing to jump into the game right away can opt for pre-loading it, and that’s great news considering how large the download file is. For PS4 consoles, there are at least 80 GB of required space needed. Hopefully, the game will also be available in the future for other platforms as well.
While the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is slowing down a lot of tech processes around the world, it acted somehow in reverse for Square Enix. The company declared:
“We had some hard decisions to make during the final few weeks before launch due to disruption to distribution channels caused by the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
“These unique circumstances have made it very difficult to align the timing of our global shipping.
“Our highest priority is that all of you, including those who live in countries currently facing the biggest disruption, can play the game at launch, so we made the decision to ship the game far earlier than usual to Europe and Australia.”
The biggest question right now is if the remake version for Final Fantasy 7 will be a blockbuster or not. Hints are pointing to a massive success.
