19 Comments

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake has shipped and sold over five million copies worldwide since its release on April 10. This figure includes both digital sales and shipments to retailers.

The publisher notes that digital sales were particularly strong for the timed PlayStation 4 exclusive. It quickly shot to the top of the PS Store download charts in the US following its release, and set sales records while topping the NPD chart, despite launching on a single platform. Square Enix reports that Final Fantasy VII Remake is the company's highest-selling digital game ever on the PlayStation platform.

The game is set to appear on other unannounced platforms in April next year, and the second part has now entered full development. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, it's currently at its lowest price point at multiple retailers and is 34% off on the PS Store.

It's well worth playing, too, earning a score of 10/10 in GameSpot's Final Fantasy VII Remake review. "The wait for its release was a long one, but in gameplay, story, characters, and music, it delivers--the wait was worth it," says critic Tamoor Hussain. "For first-time players, it's an opportunity to understand why Final Fantasy VII is held in such high regard. It's the chance to experience a multifaceted story that grapples with complex subject matter, be in the company of memorable characters, and be moved by their plight. For returning fans, this isn't the Final Fantasy VII your mind remembers, it's the one your heart always knew it to be."
