Final Fantasy 7 Remake is set to come out on April 10, but Aussie can get the game now.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is finally here. As we’ve mentioned before, the coronavirus pandemic is complicating game releases but the best option so far is to go with the physical retailers after the game broke street date.

If you do head outside, make sure to take all necessary safety precautions — don’t touch your face, keep 1.5 metres away from other people and stay aware of your surroundings.

With that in mind, both EB Games and JB Hi-Fi are great options. JB Hi-Fi has the best price at $79 and while EB Games lists the game for $99.95, your local store should offer price-matching.

If you’re not comfortable heading outside, Amazon is the cheapest option for delivery currently. The game costs $69 and Amazon Prime members will recieve free shipping with their orders. Otherwise, you can pay between $5.99 and $9.99 for priority delivery.

These are your other best options:

Midgar is waiting. Will you answer the call?

5 Things I Loved About The Final Fantasy 7 Remake, And 1 I Didn't

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is almost here, and I spent around three hours with the game recently when the game came to Sydney as part of a global press tour. The preview was enough to play through the first two chapters, boss fights and a section later on in the game. Here are five things about the remake that I loved, and one that has me worried.

Square Spent 'Several Years' Working On Final Fantasy 7 Remake's AI Tech

Aside from the work that's gone into the first episode of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Square has done a ton of R&D into the technology behind the game. How much time exactly? Several years, according to the game's producer.

    • Square have confirmed that Australia & Europe are getting the game “way earlier” than the street date and The Gamesmen have announced today that they are getting it “very soon” so I imagine the game will be in peoples hands by the end of the week. Very good to hear this news as I was worried about retailers having to shut for corona lockdowns. Let’s hope JB are not stubborn on this one and actually release it early as they should.

      • I’ve actually found there are some Australian store sites that won’t allow me to order through them. They’ll put a hold on the money but then say that they’ve rejected my (Australian) bank. I think I may have had that problem with JB Hi Fi, and I know Officeworks has definitely caused me issues.

  • What’s baffling me is that they are calling it Final Fantasy 7 Remake not Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1.

    To me, that is false advertising and you’d either be entitled to a refund after completing Midgar or be entitled to every future part released for free as you have paid for Final Fantasy 7 Remake?

    • lol, exactly my thought on the matter as well, it very much looks like they are just farming money. Probably very much going to be the original launch of FF15, pay a big price for release + DLC, then wait a year or two for complete launch on Steam for half price(and no worth trying to sell the original release on eBay). And thats only a fragment of a game.

    • I’m sorry, but when has it ever worked that way with sequels. It’s Final Fantasy X and Final fantasy X-2 not FF X-1 and X-2. Iron man, iron man 2, iron man 3 not Iron man 1. People need to stop looking at it like parts of one game when they have said they are ‘REMAKING’ it as multiple full games

      • It’s a remake not a sequel.

        As it’s not a full remake of the original product it should be labelled as such.

        • Yes you’re right, it’s not a sequel, it’s FF7R and the next game to come out in the series is an FF7R sequel and it doesn’t matter how they title it, it can be FF7R-2 or FF7R part 2 it will be a full game sequel to a full game not disc 2 to a single game. This is not the first time someone has done a retelling of a story and changed it up slightly, added new story beats. Stop being self entitled to something you aren’t owed

          • I think clarity on the extent of what you are selling is owed in a business transaction, there will be many who aren’t following the games media who pick up this game for nostaliga who are going to feel ripped off because it is not clear. If they are not remaking Final Fantasy 7 in its entirety then they should not be calling the game Final Fantasy 7 Remake. A better example is that Harry Potter and the deathly hallows was made into part 1 and 2 because it makes sense to set expectations of splitting the content of your source material.

        • It already isn’t the same as the original product tho. For one they already mentioned and have shown changes being made apart from it being based within midgar, including gameplay and story changes. So they’ve already advertised it being a separate game from the original and all other sequel to it.
          Further saying someone should be entitled to the sequels when you have bought this game, is like saying that someone who bought the original ratchet and clank on the ps2 should be entitled to ratchet and clank(2016) since they hold the same title and you’ve already paid for the game. Which is just nonsense if that wasn’t clear.

    • A remake includes modification of the original product. I’m sure the Reddit class action will meet with great success and I suggest you bet your house on it lol

  • Amazon:
    Currently unavailable.
    We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.

    Big W:
    Home delivery is not available for this product.

    HN wants $6 for delivery so it goes up to $84

    JB wants $3.50 for delivery to get it within 1 business day of release so it goes up to $82.5 and is cheaper than HN

    • JB Hifi website says it’s currently in stock and even has the “please don’t spoil it” message on the webpage. Delivery is only $1.99 for me.

      Amazon say that it won’t be released until the 7th.

      Big W has gone up to $79 with $3.90 delivery and won’t be delivered until the 8th or the 9th.

      EB say it’s available for $99.95.

      Looks like JB should be your best bet.

      • Should note the $1.99 JB delivery option is slow and untracked. If you want it faster you’re looking at $4.99 delivery.

  • What I really like about square enix games is how much their prices drop. I have a massive backlog so by the time I get around to wanting to play this one it should be 10 bucks.

  • 3 hours in and… wow. This is… brilliant.

    I’m in love with how good this is. Everything I wanted it to be and more 🙂

  • Anyone else had this experience. Called EB in the morning asked if they had stock and would price match. They say yeah come on in we will put aside a copy. Get there and they said, “Cool ok you can get if for $79 if you prove that the most local store of JB or BigW have it in stock”… since when is that a thing!? They knew those places didn’t have it in stock, just wanted me to jump through hoops. I walked out, completely out of principle.
