People in Europe and Asia have begun receiving their copy of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake.
This was a conscious decision from Square Enix due to disruptions from the Corona Virus.
A statement on Twitter reads:
‘We had some hard decisions to make during the final weeks before launch due to disruption to distribution channels caused by the spread of the Covid-19 virus,’
‘These unique circumstances have made it very difficult to align timing of our global shipping. Our highest priority is that all of you, including those who live in countries currently facing the biggest disruption, can play the game at launch, so we made the decision to ship the game far earlier than usual to Europe and Australia.’
For the rest of the world, with just one week to go until the launch of Final Fantasy VII remake, SQUARE ENIX is making the digital pre-load available starting today on the PlayStation Store to ensure that players are ready to jump straight in to the streets of Midgar when the game releases worldwide on April 10.
In addition, SQUARE ENIX unveiled its Final Trailer from Japan, giving fans a glimpse into memorable narrative moments revealing familiar faces, new characters and epic scenes from late in the game.
