    FINAL_FANTASY_VII_REMAKE_LOGO.jpg

    Following glowing reviews from critics across the globe, Square Enix Ltd., today announced that FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE shipments and digital sales exceeded over 3.5 million worldwide in 3 days following its April 10 release. The game has achieved exceptional digital sales which are continuing to increase.

    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.

    FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE draws players into a world where the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation, controls the planet’s very life force. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to an underground resistance group calling themselves Avalanche as they fight against Shinra’s oppressive force.

    Given the engine, it's likely that the only reason it isn't, is the contract with Sony to keep it exclusive to playstation for a year.

    Hopefully by then, it'll already include any dlc released in the meantime, if FF 15 is anything to go by.

    That's all good and fine, now I'm just waiting until I can trade it in toward the PC version. Unless playing it on PS5 is a big improvement and they don't release a PS5-specific version, anyway.

    That’s a snarky comment considering it deviates from the question running around trying to unlock trophies vs actually playing through the game was all I was asking considering it’s and action game now

    People aren't saying it's short, they're saying it was stupid to split it up into multiple parts, regardless of length. And on that point I'd agree. Remakes shouldn't be an excuse to make people buy the game multiple times.

    For comparison; FFXV did around 2.5million in its first week but those were just retail sales.
    FVIIR boasts 3.5mil in 3 days but combines digital and retail purchases.
    When you consider they shipped early in some regions and literally everyone on the planet is at home for launch, and could buy digitally if it became their only option - the number isn't that amazing.

    Huh. I expected more. Not that these aren't great sales numbers, but for something that's so insanely beloved, I was expecting a bigger turnout. Good for SE, though, FFVIIR is an awesome game.
