Final Fantasy VII Remake

This month Final Fantasy VII Remake was finally released. Earlier this week Square Enix has announced on Twitter that shipments and digital sales has exceeded over 3.5 million worldwide in three days after the release on 10 April.

We're proud to announce we shipped and digitally sold over 3.5M copies of Final Fantasy VII Remake in 3 days!

All of us would like to raise our Buster Swords to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us during launch, we hope you’re all enjoying the game!

Final Fantasy VII Remake sales exceeds 3.5 million

However this is not the fatest selling Final Fantasy game. When Final Fantasy XV was released back in 2016 the game has shipped 5 million copies of the game within 24 hours. Final Fantasy XV was no PlayStation exclusive. It was also released in Xbox One at launch day.

Final Fantasy VII Remake has received very good reviews scoring an 88 on Metacritic at this moment.

After the announcement back on E3 2015, a long silence and the switch of development team, the wait is finally over! Final Fantasy VII Remake is now available for PlayStation 4.

Completely rebuilt using the best of modern gaming technology, Final Fantasy VII Remake is a reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre. Along with unforgettable characters and a story revered as one of the most powerful within video games, the game also features a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat. The first game in the project is set in the eclectic and sprawling city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that goes deeper into the iconic characters and world than ever before.

Please note that due to the coronavirus outbreak you might not received the game today. Please be patient and stay safe!

Yoshinori Kitase (Producer) and Tetsuya Nomura (Director) of the Final Fantasy VII Remake development team has released an imported message regarding the release of the game and the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

The Final Fantasy VII Remake team have worked extremely hard to make this game and we are incredibly proud of what you are about to play. Our biggest motivator during the development was that so many of you were willing us on, and we felt your enthusiasm and passion every step of the way.

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 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.

As a result, there is a greater chance that some of you in these regions will now get a copy of the game prior to the worldwide release date of April 10. For other western regions, including the Americas, copies will be shipped this week and we feel optimistic that most of you will receive the game for launch day. However, due to the challenging situation we cannot provide delivery dates for each country and each retailer.

We really want all of you looking forward to Final Fantasy VII Remake to play the game on April 10 and experience everything we have been working on, together.

To everyone we would like to ask one big favour.

If you get the game early, please think of others and don’t spoil it for them. We know there are potential spoilers that have been out there for over two decades as the original Final Fantasy VII was released in 1997. But Final Fantasy VII Remake is a new game that still has many surprises for everyone. All our fans and players deserve to experience the game for themselves, and we ask for the support of our dedicated community around the world to ensure that.

On behalf of the entire development team, and everyone around the world that has worked on getting Final Fantasy VII Remake to you all, thanks again for your support, and most importantly, please stay safe.

So, please if you got the game early, don't spoil anything. And stay safe and follow the restrictions of your country.

Yesterday Square Enix has released a statement update regarding the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

As we prepare for the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake on April 10, we wanted to keep you updated on how the proactive measures being taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus are likely to affect the distribution and retail landscape in western regions at launch.

As you will be aware, many countries are limiting entry or closing their national and state borders and restricting the distribution and delivery of non-essential items. Understandably these restrictions are being implemented so that essential items can reach their destination as fast as possible.

This does not mean that box copies of Final Fantasy VII Remake will not be dispatched, it just means that we cannot control the date the game may arrive.

In many countries and states, retail stores are closing to help with social distancing measures. If you placed a pre-order with one of these retailers, we advise you to check their websites for the latest information about the status of pre-orders, as well as pick-up and/or delivery information. Please ensure your mailing address and contact details are up to date, as some retailers have begun contacting customers with delivery updates.

Finally, we are currently making arrangements to ensure that pre-orders from the Square Enix reach you by April 10.

We are working hard to ensure as many of you as possible can play the game on April 10 and will update further when we have more information.

Thank you for your continued support and most importantly, stay safe.

Stay safe and follow the restrictions of your country.
