Talk about cashing in on nostalgia: along with last night’s new trailer that sent the internet into a tizzy, Square Enix unleashed the Final Fantasy 7 remake – 1st Class Edition onto the Square Enix Store. It can be yours for, um, £260.
What exactly do you get for all that money, then? Well, a lot of the classic collector’s edition tat – so that’s a Sephiroth SteelBook case, artbook, mini-soundtrack CD and a few bits of bonus DLC. Lastly, there’s a Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife and Hardy Daytona box set statue, which is clearly where the biggest chunk of your change is going.
Undoubtedly, it’s a stylish set, but you also have to think that this is just the first part of the Final Fantasy 7 remake. Are there really going to be people out there willing to fork over this sort of cash for however many chapters the game ends up arriving in? Oh, wait, now I’ve typed that out I’m pretty sure the answer is a solid yes.
