The successful launch of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade on Steam is a bit of a surprise. The remake was first released on the Epic Games Store as a timed exclusive in December 2021, so it’s over six months later that Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade has dropped its exclusivity shackles for PC players. on a different window.
A limited-time discount could also entice players to buy. When Square Enix announced the Steam version of the PC port last week (opens in a new tab)fans balked at the £70 request, but Square Enix has slashed that price by 29% for the time being, slashing the remake to £49.69 so far later this week on June 23rd.
Besides, for the remake, we finally know what the second part will be called. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth was unveiled last week by Square Enix, and it appears to deviate quite a bit from the original storyline, as the second part of a planned trilogy with the culminating chapter already in active development. Ahead of Rebirth launching next winter, there’s Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core Reunion to look forward to later this year, a remaster of the excellent PSP original.
