Final Fantasy VII Special Edition & Pre-Order Bonuses Announced

During the Square Enix presentation at E3 2019, we got a new trailer for the Final Fantasy 7 remake. It shows off a bunch of gameplay footage, including combat and just walking around the world. It’s so much different from the original; definitely much more than a simple facelift. The trailer also showed us the special editions of the game; Deluxe Edition and 1st Class Edition.

Okay, so, first off, the pre-order bonuses. That’s easy to get off the list, because there’s only one. Specifically, the Chocobo Chick Summon Materia DLC. That’s it. I can live with that; minimal pre-order bonuses, that is. Next up, the Deluxe Edition, which costs $80. Aside from the game (on two discs), it comes with Deluxe Edition packaging, a Sephiroth steelbook case, a hardback artbook, a mini-soundtrack CD. As far as digital goodies go, the Deluxe Edition of the FF7 remake comes with the Summon Materia Cactuar DLC.

Then, we have the 1st Class Edition, which is the highest-tier edition. It comes with everything from the Deluxe Edition, plus a few extras. For one, you get the Carbuncle Summon Materia DLC on top of the other digital stuff. As far as the physical items go, well, look at the image above. It’s a poseable Play Arts figure of Cloud Strife and his motorcycle, the Hardy Daytona. Quite something to put on the mantel, if you’re that big of a fan. And I assume you are, if you get this edition. Why? Because it costs $330; a very steep markup compared to the Deluxe Edition.

Now, of course, the trailer doesn’t just show off the special editions, quite the contrary. There’s a ton of combat to see, some traversal of the world, and even Tifa finally shows up and kicks butt! It’s honestly a fantastic trailer; you should check it out below, if you haven’t already. The Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming out on March 3rd, 2020. So far, it seems like you’ll only be able to play it on the PlayStation 4. Although, knowing the industry, I’m certain that it’ll come to other platforms eventually.
