The long-awaited Final Fantasy 7 Remake is finally out on PS4. The first part of Square Enix's sprawling, episodic remake of the seminal PlayStation RPG released April 10, so we can finally dive in and see Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, and the rest of the crew in HD.

In his glowing 10/10 Final Fantasy 7 Remake review, GameSpot's Tamoor Hussain praised its updated combat, characters, and stunning rendition of Midgar. "Regardless of your history with the original game, Final Fantasy VII Remake is an astounding achievement," he writes. "The wait for its release was a long one, but in gameplay, story, characters, and music, it delivers--the wait was worth it." If you'd like to play a chunk of the game for yourself ahead of release, you can check out the demo.

The remake brings some huge updates for FF7 fans, who have waited anxiously for the game during its long development period. Square Enix previously confirmed the remake of FF7 will be released in multiple installments and that each installment will be quite substantial; during the E3 2019 press conference, the team also confirmed it will contain two Blu-ray discs' worth of content.

Just weeks before the game's release, Square Enix announced some physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake could be delayed by "unforeseeable changes in the distribution and retail landscape" due to coronavirus, although the game's release date was not pushed back. To counteract potential delays, Square began shipping copies of the game early in some regions.

Many physical copies of FF7 Remake sold out by launch day, but some retailers are starting to restock. If you plan to get a physical copy, be sure to note the estimated delivery date and be aware that there may be delays. You can check out where to buy FF7 Remake below, including links for the two premium editions announced during E3: a Deluxe edition and a 1st Class collector's edition, both of which are selling out quickly whenever they're in stock.

Please note that Best Buy is doing curbside pickup these days, so if you find the game in stock at your local store, you may not need to even go inside.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake pre-order bonuses

If you pre-ordered FF7 Remake at any major retailer, you got the Chocobo Chick Summon Materia DLC. Several retailers also offered different exclusive bonuses. Those retailers are no longer offering them as of launch day, however. If you're picking up a copy locally, make sure to ask about any leftover pre-order bonuses still available.
