The much awaited remake of the 7th installment of the Final Fantasy franchise, Final Fantasy VII Remake was available since April 10. Official words were, combine physical and digital sales have surpassed 3.5 million copies worldwide in just three days. After seeing the gameplay, it is not hard to see why.
But gameplay probably has little to do with it. It is likely the nostalgia at work here. If you haven’t got on to the hype, perhaps you should since we are all stuck inside our four walls. It should be fun, but only if you have a PS4…
Three editions are available: Standard, Deluxe and 1st Class. With the exception of 1st Class, both Standard and Deluxe are available in digital as well as physical version. Standard edition needs no explanation whether or not its digital or physical copy.
Deluxe, however, is a little more complex. With Deluxe, you will get a physical copy of game with reversible cover, a Sephiroth Steelbook Case, a hardback artbook showcasing stunning concept art, and mini-soundtrack CD, plus Summon Materia Cactuar DLC.
Meanwhile, with the Digital Deluxe, you will find a digital download of the FFVII Remake, digital artbook featuring high-quality concept art, digital mini-soundtrack, as well as Summon Materia for two classic FF creatures, Carbuncle and Cactuar.
The holy grail edition here is, of course, the 1st Class edition, which at $329.99, it is strictly a connoisseur thing. For $300+ dollars, you will get everything the Deluxe edition has too offer, plus an addition Carbuncle creature with the Summon Material DLC AND a Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife & Hardy Daytona Box Set.
You can pick up the digital Standard and digital Deluxe edition from PlayStation Store for $59.99 and $79.99, respectively. The physical version of the Standard and Deluxe edition also sells for $59.99 and $79.99, respectively.
Before you open your wallet, you may want to give the Final Fantasy VII Demo a go first. The demo lets you play the opening chapter of the game for a taste of what is to come. As boon (or not), those who download the demo before May 11, 2020 will receive an exclusive PlayStation 4 system theme when the full game launches, i.e. only after you decide to committing buying the game.
