Final Fantasy 7 Remake has a limited edition of Sony's Walkman
The long-awaited Final Fantasy 7 Remake lived up to its expectations, bringing players back to the city of Midgar, powered by high technology and mako energy. To celebrate its successful launch, Sony honored the title with its own modernized version of a classic piece of retro technology.
For many players, Square Enix's original Final Fantasy 7 was an unforgettable introduction to the most famous JRPG franchise in the world. After its release on the original PlayStation in 1997, the title conquered the world with its state-of-the-art graphics, magical slotting system of innovative material and the epic scope of its history, which spanned three CDs at a time when most games were made on a single disc.
The first part of Final Fantasy 7 Remake was released for the PlayStation 4 on April 10, it modernized the game's graphics, incorporated a new combat system and added many substantial narrative changes to the original FF7 formula to bring Cloud's story to a new level. new generation.
It is an appropriate tribute to the game, which Sony honored the title with a modernized special edition of its classic portable media player, the Walkman. Originally a portable tape player, the Walkman has been in continuous production since its launch since 1979 in various incarnations, playing CDs, MP3s and, now, a fully digital model that accommodates streaming services and music files. It's even more appropriate given the fame of the Final Fantasy 7 soundtrack, and the FF7 Remake's emphasis on remixing those tracks, for something better.
Unfortunately for avid collectors, there is no word of a western release for this special edition of the Walkman. The media player also sold out almost immediately after its release in Japan, and there is no news of continuity at the moment. The demand is not surprising, given the popularity of the game. Final Fantasy 7 Remake has just exceeded 5 million sales worldwide, giving Square Enix a year of financial success after a long and difficult phase.
Those who have never experienced a Final Fantasy, or even Final Fantasy 7 in particular, may find the hype curious. The Xbox Game Pass recently launched the original Final Fantasy 7 on the service, giving players a chance to see what it's all about. However, one can still question the need for a digital media player in the smartphone era. Nostalgic fascination and a desire for limited collectibles are probably stronger attractions than gross utility.
Players who have already started their adventures in Midgar may want to take advantage of another promotional offer that has recently become free for all users. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake DLC, Butterfingers, is now available for free for all players to download, with equipment that should make the fight against the evil Shinra Corporation a little easier.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is now available on PlayStation 4.
I like several different works, but with a tendency for strange and funny stories.
I like arts, games, drawings and interesting things.
