Oh no, the fear we all had has come to pass: your pre-order Final Fantasy 7 Remake will no longer be coming to you in March. The recent news has confirmed some fear and the new release date for one of the most sought after remakes of all time is now 10 April 2020. So it remains a few months away. The silver lining of this is that we'll get a more refined and polished game, the devs (hopefully) won't be as crunched as they might have been, and you've got a whole extra month to nail down your Final Fantasy 7 Remake pre-order.
Final Fantasy 7 is still set to be one of the games of 2020. As it's a remake of a classic, we now quite a lot about the game of Final Fantasy 7 itself, but dribs and drabs of new information have come out giving us a clearer idea as to how the remake is shaping up. Even though it'll have all the hallmarks of a 'modern AAA' game, and one right at home with the trends, styles and characteristic of such games, it will feature the ability to switch back to Classic, turn-based combat, that so many enjoyed 20-odd years ago and that make the series standout. And even though Square Enix are very much not trying to make a one-for-one copy, the recent trailer from the Tokyo Game Show showed us how it's building on from the original game. Away from the specifics and the details, even the boxart caused a nostalgic fuss and made us come over all funny. Having said all that, and given it's a pretty well publicised game, if you're able to go at it from a completely blind and fresh perspective, then that might just be the best way to approach your Final Fantasy 7 Remake pre-order.
Anyway, pre-orders are up for grabs right now so there's not a moment to lose. Below you'll find links to all the Final Fantasy 7 Remake pre-orders available both sides of the bond and from the usual suspects. We've even thrown in some of the relevant art books at the bottom for you to consider to go alongside the game's release or to enjoy and fill the gap between now and the release date. Thus, you have all the tools you need to make an informed decision as to which Final Fantasy 7 Remake pre-order edition you need to smash the go button on.
