Final Fantasy VII Remake Has Broken Street Date In Australia

Final Fantasy VII Remake Has Broken Street Date In Australia

Well. It’s happened.

After numerous reports of leaked copies, statements from publisher Square Enix around global shipments and the looming threat of a nationwide lockdown – Final Fantasy VII Remake has dropped early.

Not just a day or two either. Originally scheduled for an April 10th release, here we are on the 1st and the game is available to buy in stores and online at most major gaming retailers.

Our friends at Press Start Australia, who broke the news this morning, have confirmed with multiple stores and sources that this is not some cruel April Fools jokes. WellPlayed superfan Lachlan Robertson of Lachstar Games has also provided us with proof in the form of photographic evidence of his Deluxe Edition of the game:

At this stage it looks like the digital release of the game is sticking to the original date, likely because changing it would open the floodgates for users with PSN accounts in multiple regions.

Happy Final Fantasy-ing, everybody!

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
