Final Fantasy VII Remake launching early in Europe!
Amidst global pandemic concerns, Square Enix has announced that it will be shipping copies of Final Fantasy VII Remake early to Europe and Australia to ensure fans receive the game on time for its April 10 launch date amidst postal delays, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In addition to shipping early overseas, the company is set to ship copies of the highly-anticipated game this week in the Americas with “optimistic” feeling that they can get it to fans on time for its April 10 release if not earlier, although they ask a favor for fans who get a copy of the game early.
“If you get the game early, please think of others and don’t spoil it for them. We know there are potential spoilers that have been out there for over two decades as the original Final Fantasy VII was released in 1997,” they said. “But Final Fantasy VII Remake is a new game that still has many surprises for everyone. All our fans and players deserve to experience the game for themselves, and we ask for the support of our dedicated community around the world to ensure that.”
