The gaming world was eagerly waiting for a remake of the 1997 PlayStation game Final Fantasy 7 to arrive on March 2nd. But some unexpected factors made the release to be delayed until April 10. The remake is set to be an action RPG developed and published by Square Enix only for PlayStation 4.
However, those gamers who pre-ordered a copy from the PlayStation Store will have the chance to start downloading the remake from today, April 3.
What Square Enix has to say
The developer and publisher Square Enix has been fair and suggested that it’s normal for a release date regarding a game to be delayed in these difficult times:
“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 item can reach their destination as fast as possible.”
However, here’s the final trailer of the upcoming game:
Game Demo already available
If you want to get a taste of the remake for Final Fantasy 7 by any means necessary, you can choose the freshly released demo version. A PlayStation blog post says the following about the mini version:
“The new demo features a lengthy segment from the very beginning of the game: the iconic bombing mission against the Shinra Electric Power Company, and the subsequent escape,”
Hopefully, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will arrive for PC as well someday, and here’s how the system requirements might look like:
- CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz / AMD FX-8320
- Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 of 2 GB / AMD Radeon R9 380
- RAM Memory: 8 GB
- Windows: Windows 7 at 64 Bit
- DirectX: DX 11
- HDD Space: 50 GB
The upcoming remake for Final Fantasy 7 is expected to be a major hit for the gaming world, and we can’t wait to see the game running on whatever platforms it shall be available for.
