Good news for Square-Enix and the Final Fantasy VII Remake: if you thought that the coronavirus and the difficulties of publication and distribution would hurt the sales of the game, then we have for you a pleasant surprise.
According to the data released by the analyst of the NPD Group, Mat Piscatella, it seems that the remake of the seventh final fantasy is, without too many turns of words, the Final Fantasy with the best launch ever in the USA, and the game PS4 the most sold in 2020 so far.
In the month of publication, i.e. April, has sold more copies of how many made record from the previous holder of the record, Final Fantasy XV, released on November 2016. Given impressive if we consider that FFXV is released on the PS4 and Xbox One, while FFVII Remake is now available exclusively on the Sony console.
Although it will be the game PS4 sold more in 2020, it is not the most sold in absolute ranking, where it occupies the third step of the podium ahead of him we have, in fact, the multiplatform Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the mammoth Animal Crossing: New Horizons’, the exclusive Switch by over 13 million copies sold.
In short, everywhere you look, Final Fantasy VII Remake is a success with the critics, the public, and sales. If, in the future, the game will land on other platforms too, the final data will be destined to grow and it is equally likely that the following chapters may record numbers even more impressive.

For that, unfortunately, we’ll have to wait quite a bit. What do you think? You would expect a similar success, or you were afraid that the coronavirus or the fact that it is a remake, they would have damaged sales?
