Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake Box Art

Final Fantasy VII Remake is an action RPG from Square Enix that retells the story of the original 1997 game in high definition. Like the title implies, it is not merely a port but a ground-up remake with new environments, character models, soundtrack, and modernized gameplay mechanics.

The story of Final Fantasy 7 follows Cloud Strife, a former soldier of the shadowy Shinra corporation which is utilizing the planet’s very life force as an energy source. After being hired by a resistance group Avalanche, he fights alongside his new comrades to save the planet.

Final Fantasy VII Remake - Vinyl Set

While not a game edition, this limited 2-LP picture disc vinyl set is also worth a mention. Containing music highlights from Final Fantasy VII and tracks from Final Fantasy VII Remake, it is available for pre-order now and will launch alongside the game.

FFXIV Shadowbringers and FF7R Theme

As per @PlayStation tweet, owners of FFXIV: Shadowbringers who pre-order the standard or Digital Deluxe editions of FF7 Remake from PlayStation Store are entitled to a bonus PS4 theme previewed above. The theme features changing backgrounds from both games and the “Prelude” music track from FF7R.

After a one month delay for additional polish, Final Fantasy VII Remake is now scheduled to launch on April 10, 2020 for PlayStation 4 exclusively. Physical copies will come with a reversible cover: a throwback to the box art of the original PS1 title on one side, and the logo against a black backdrop on the other. After the one-year period of exclusivity ends, the game is likely to launch on other platforms too.

    Unless I’m mistaken, the Deluxe edition doesn’t include Carbuncle Summon Materia DLC. Only the 1st Class Collector’s Edition does.

      If you trust the product description on PSN Carbuncle DLC is included with the Deluxe Edition, but apparently the Square Enix store is the exception. A Square Enix support rep told me, quote “The Playstation store does indeed offer the Carbuncle Summon Materia while on our store that bonus only comes with the 1st Class Edition.”

      Edit: it’s included in the Digital Deluxe Edition on PSN, but not the physical Deluxe Edition at retail.

    Amazing! But why 250USD for a figurine?

    Still better than the Mortal Kombat 11 Kollectors Edition, you get more for your money with the Final Fantasy VII 1st Class Edition. I’m wondering that this Collectors Edition isn’t sold out ^^

    You can play it as an action RPG or in classic turn based menu mode. I’m hyped!

    Does the digital deluxe version include the Chocobo Chick pre-order DLC or is that exclusive to the physical editions?

        On PSN for DD it only says Cactaur and Carbuncle, no Chocobo Chick.

        On Square website for DD it only says Chocobo Chick and Cactaur, no Carbuncle.

        For the Cloud & Sephiroth theme I only see it listed on PSN. Though I could swear I saw it when I pre-ordered ot GS months ago.
