This is why you should go digital, folks.
We’re less than two weeks away from Final Fantasy VII Remake at this point. However, Square Enix (on their blog post) has admitted that they will not be able to actually control when physical copies of the game will arrive.
Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, many countries are limiting entry, closing their national and state borders, and restricting the distribution and delivery of non-essential items. This will affect the arrival of physical copies of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Square Enix said that they “are currently making arrangements to ensure that pre-orders reach players by 10 April 2020.” However, they have already failed, as the street date for the game has been broken.
According to Reddit, several gamers have gotten their hands on the game early following an image posted by a person who goes by the handle NateLo22 of the contents of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition.
It seems that certain stores are shipping out copies of the game early to overcome the lockdown restrictions currently happening in many countries. The lesson here, folks, is to start adopting digital games instead. Digital games are the future.
