Square Enix previously announced that there might be a shortage of physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake come launch in some countries. Today, the company announced that many customers in Europe will likely be receiving the game well ahead of release date.
The announcement came today on March 30 from the official Final Fantasy 7 Remake Twitter account. As you can see in the images below, Square has made the decision to ship the game to Europe and Australia early, so customers in those regions who have already pre-ordered the game are likely going to get it ahead of the release date on April 10.
As for US customers, they'll likely get their copies of the game closer to, if not on, launch day. "Copies will be shipped this week and we feel optimistic that most of you will receive the game for launch date," reads the post from Yoshinori Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura, producer and director of Final Fantasy 7 Remake respectively.
The post goes on to say that Square obviously can't provide delivery dates for each and every reason. Finally, both developers ask those that will receive the game early not to spoil it for others. "Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a new game that still has plenty of surprises for everyone," it reads.
Officially, Final Fantasy 7 Remake launches next Friday, on April 10. If you're itching to get your hands on the remake, the first Mako Reactor demo is still available to be downloaded for all.
