In a press release, Square Enix highlighted the remake’s “glowing reviews” from both players and critics, and said that it achieved “exceptional” digital sales. The publisher wrote:
Completely rebuilt using the best of modern gaming technology, Final Fantasy VII Remake is a reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre. Along with unforgettable characters and a story revered as one of the most powerful within video games, the game also features a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat. The first game in the project is set in the eclectic and sprawling city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that goes deeper into the iconic characters and world than ever before.
