It looks like SQUARE ENIX long awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake lived up to it’s hype! The game which fans have been waiting for for a long time has received glowing reviews from both players and critics and the company have announced recently that the Final Fantasy VII Remake has exceeded over five million shipments and digital sales worldwide!
The stunning demand for the game has earned it the prestigious honour of becoming the highest selling digital release on the Playstation platform in SQUARE ENIX’s history! For those who have yet to experience the critically acclaimed RPG, the game is actually now discounted up to 34% off until August 19 on the PlayStation Store.
Completely rebuilt using the best of modern gaming technology, the 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.
The game 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.
While the gameplay differs from the original and may take some getting used to, especially if you expected the conventional turn based system, trust us, it’s not a game you want to miss out on. So, if you grew up playing the Final Fantasy series of games do yourself a favour and check it out!
