It’s been nearly five years since Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced during Sony’s E3 2015 event, but Square Enix has announced today that the game has finally gone gold. Well, technically, it’s the first part of the project, but still, it’s reason to celebrate.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Goes Gold
Interestingly enough, today is the original release date for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, so it’s somewhat fitting the game has hit gold status. However, we have to wait a little bit longer to get our hands on the game, as it’s now due on April 10.
Speaking with 4Gamer, Tetsuya Nomura commented:
We had some time to improve the quality of the final product, but we have already mastered it, so there is no further delay.
You can now download a Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo via the PlayStation Store, which takes place during the bombing mission at the start of the game.
In addition, we played around three hours of the game last week, so be sure to read our thoughts in our hands-on preview.
Square Enix has revealed some new details on the game this week, including the fact Red XIII won’t be a playable party member in the game. The studio also said that Final Fantasy 7 Remake wasn’t going to feature any ATB mechanics at one point.
In case you haven’t been keeping up, the game covers the Midgar portion of the original game, but it’s been expanded considerably to accommodate two Blu-ray discs. You can also expect to see more on the characters of Biggs, Wedge, and Jesse this time around.
Given the proximity to the PS5‘s release next holiday season, it’s pretty much all but guaranteed we’ll see future instalments (and possibly the first part) on Sony’s next-generation system.
