It’s been four years since Square Enix announced a full remake of JRPG classic Final Fantasy VII for PS4 at E3 2015, and 22 years since the original game was released in 1997 for the PS1. We’ve seen and heard very little about the remake since it was officially revealed, but FF7 fans finally have more tangible footage to get hyped about, thanks to the recent State of Play broadcast.

While the latest trailer didn’t reveal many new details, Square Enix did confirm the FF7 remake will be released in multiple installments and that more information will be shared in June, presumably at the publisher’s E3 conference on June 10 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. Each installment will be quite substantial; in fact, a producer told Game Informer in 2016 each part will “essentially be a full-scale game” rather than a series of small episodes.
With the release of a new trailer and the promise of more information next month, you might be wondering if you can pre-order Final Fantasy VII. The answer is yes: Amazon is the only retailer with a listing for the FF7 remake, and it’s been live for quite some time now. As usual, Amazon will honor your pre-order with the cheapest price available, so if the price drops sometime between when you pre-order and release day, you’ll be charged the lower price. Even if your order has shipped and the price drops on release day (hey, it happened with Mortal Kombat 11), you’ll be refunded the difference between what you paid and the lowest price. So it’s not a bad deal, especially if you’re only concerned about owning the standard edition of the game.
Of course, there’s still a lot we don’t know yet, such as the release date or what kind of editions or pre-order bonuses will be available. We’ll update this story as soon as more details are revealed.
Pre-order Final Fantasy VII Remake standard edition
Right now, you can pre-order the standard edition for PS4 at Amazon for $60. It’ll come with the base game and any applicable pre-order bonuses.
