A lot of what makes Final Fantasy games special does not just come from the characters, combat, or writing. One aspect of this franchise forever remains their beloved soundtracks. Fortunately, fans can look forward to the upcoming release of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 7 Vinyl set.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 7 Vinyl
This two-vinyl release looks to celebrate the old and the new together by compiling more popular, impactful tracks all into one release. However, this means that these vinyls will not include the entirety of both soundtracks. Pre-order for this vinyl compilation lines up on Wednesday, July 7. Half of a year separates the first pre-order opening and the official vinyl release date of January 31, 2020.
This vinyl combo will set you back ¥7,777. At the time of publication, this exchanges to $72.47, £57.02, or €64.18.
One thing to keep in mind with this offering is the warning that Square-Enix included on the pre-order page:
We will temporarily close reservations once we reach our production limit.
We will then announce when we expect to resume taking orders.
All of these vinyls will be made to order. This means that you may not get into the first round of available vinyl records. However, this verbiage implies that they fully intend on opening up another reservation period sometime after the first opening. If you end up missing the first round, don’t feel like you completely missed the boat. Another round of pre-orders should come a bit later.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake hype train is real, and this vinyl compilation adds to that railway. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 7 vinyl set will ship out January 31, 2020, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake will hit store shelves March 3, 2020. It’s a bit of a wait, but nine months and seven months, respectively, ends up flying by with all the holidays and other titles releasing between then and now.
