In news that should surprise no one, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake is already doing gangbusters commercially worldwide, even amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In a press release sent out, Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy 7 Remake sales (digital) and shipments have now surpassed over 3.5 million units worldwide in just three days!
Released just this April 10, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a re-imagining of the origial PlayStation 1 RPG classic.
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.
