It really should come as no surprise to anyone that the remake of Final Fantasy VII is selling like hot cakes. Add to that the whole situation around the novel coronavirus, and you have a recipe for blockbuster numbers. And, well, that’s exactly what happened. As the official FF7 Remake Twitter tells it, the game has “shipped and digitally sold over 3.5M copies” in just three days. And, yes, there’s no doubt that this game was going to move massive numbers regardless. However, the fact that so many people are stuck in their homes certainly helps matters.

Now, what will be interesting to see is how the next part of the remake is going to sell. After all, the first part pulls some very… interesting things with the plot, which has angered hardcore fans. So, we’ll have to wait and see just how many people that have purchased this “episode” will opt to continue the adventure. But, well, we’ve got a long way to go until that.

Whatever the reasons for the new Final Fantasy VII selling well, the fact remains that a lot of people are playing it. And, just by the law of averages, some of you are bound to get stuck somewhere.
