Square Enix couldn’t keep all Final Fantasy VII Remake copies safe from the customers.
Previously, we discussed how Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s physical copies’ distribution and availability could run into trouble in the European and North American regions, „thanks” to the coronavirus outbreak. This doesn’t affect the digital version, as it will be available on April 10 on the PlayStation Store (and let’s hope that by this day, the speed won’t be throttled, but it’s too early to be hopeful), but those people who want to put a copy of the game on their shelves will be – and there are a lot of them out there.
Still, a few people seem to have already picked up a retail version of the game, which is weird as Final Fantasy VII Remake’s launch is still almost two weeks away. Yet, on Reddit, someone took a photo of their Deluxe Edition, with the promise of not providing spoilers or any more details of the game.
The Deluxe Edition of Final Fantasy VII Remake contains the game, a Steelbook, an artbook, a soundtrack sampler, and it all comes in special packaging. This seems to be on par with publishers tend to do with the more expensive versions of their games (including Ubisoft, who also loves to sell their games and their respective season passes as Gold Editions). Still, we’re sure Square Enix has made a few angry calls at a few people because of the leaks.
Final Fantasy VII Remake’s first episode will end at Midgar, and it won’t feature Red XIII as a completely playable character, but in return, he’ll get an extra floor in the Shinra building. The game will launch on April 10, as a PlayStation 4-exclusive for a year. At least Square Enix and Capcom (whose Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil Resistance drop on April 3) will have a good start to their next business year (kicking off on April 1), which can’t be said about the world itself, as it’s likely going to face a large recession.
