Although the launch was postponed until 10 April, the Final Fantasy VII Remake game made by Square Enix still gets great enthusiasm from the game lover. In fact, within three days after launch, this game has sold 3.5 million copies for the PS4 console.
This figure is a cumulation of physical and digital sales. “We are proud to announce that Final Fantasy VII Remake has sold 3.5 million copies in 3 days,” writes the official Twitter account of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
In comparison, the original Final Fantasy VII released for PlayStation 1 in 1997 took about 8 years to reach sales of 9.8 million copies in the world. Although claimed to have sold as many as 3.5 million copies, it should be noted that there is a possibility the developer also counts the number of sales to distributors, not just the final buyer.
Please note that there are a number of distributors who have already gotten the game before the launch date. That is, the 3.5 million sales figure was achieved in more than three days.
Summarized from Radar Games, Thursday (4/23/2020), at the end of March, Square Enix also briefly said that players in Europe and Australia could get the game earlier. Final Fantasy VII Remake itself is a game the results of an update from the original Final Fantasy VII released for PlayStation 1.
Currently, Final Fantasy VII Remake can be downloaded on the PlayStation 4 platform. In addition to the regular version, Square Enix also presents the Final Fantasy VII Remake Digital Deluxe Edition bundle.
This bundle package will contain the Final Fantasy VII Remake game, digital artbook, digital mini-soundtrack, and add-ons in the form of cactuar summon materia and carbuncle summon materia that can be used in the game.
Materia is an item that can be added to character weapons. By using materia, characters can summon monsters that will help players fight enemies.
