Final Fantasy VII is following in Red Dead Redemption 2’s hoof steps by shipping on two discs. But that is, as you know, old news. What isn’t old news, however, is its actual file size, which we have today learned comes in at a whopping 100 gigabyte.
So it’s no wonder that Square Enix are packaging it on to two Blu-ray discs.
The news comes via Reddit, where a picture of the game’s case art has been published. It clearly shows the figure on its back, and enough of the remaining literature to look genuine. My only criticism is the potentially lackluster cover – surely there’s something more excited planned than just its name on a black background?
Its gigantic install size should mean we’re in for a treat, though. After all, mediocre textures don’t demand so much from our hard drives. But that’s hardly surprising considering which franchise and development studio we are talking about.
However, let’s not forget that this is only part 1 of the Final Fantasy VII Remake. So I can’t even begin to imagine what the total file size will be once we reach its conclusion. But at least this part of it is self contained, which means we can complete it and delete it before the next installment drops.
Looking back, it’s safe to say that this generation has been caretaker to a number of remasters. But even if it’s a genre that isn’t your cup of tea, they have at least been pretty good overall. The Crash Team Racing Nitro-fuelled has currently got my full attention, having missed it the first time round, whilst the Yakuza Remastered Collection is doing very well in the sales chart during its physical launch week.
So, I guess we’re not tired of the same old same old after all?
