Final Fantasy VII Remake: Pre-Order Deals, Discounts and Exclusives

There's already a waiting list to pre-order the most expensive edition of the game.

At Slickdeals, we work hard to help you find the best deals. To do this, some of the products featured here are from our partners, who may provide us with compensation. However, this doesn’t influence our opinions. Our views are our own.
  • Final Fantasy VII Remake Release Date: April 10, 2020
  • Editions Available: Standard, Deluxe, 1st Class
  • Platforms: PS4
  • MSRP for Final Fantasy VII Remake: Standard — $59.99 | Deluxe Edition — $79.99 | 1st Class Edition (Square Enix Store Exclusive) — $329.99

The wait is almost over. Announced five years ago at E3, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is scheduled to hit store shelves on April 10th — assuming it’s not delayed again. While several discounts from Amazon and Walmart have already run its course, you can set a Deal Alert to get notified when it goes on sale again.

Alternatively, Amazon offers a pre-order price guarantee, so pre-ordering there ensures you’ll automatically get to enjoy the benefit of any discounts that crop up on the site between now and release day. If you’re sure you’re going to buy the game day one (even at full price), this is a pretty safe bet.

Which Version Of Final Fantasy VII Remake Should I Pre-Order?

If you’re looking to pre-order the Final Fantasy VII Remake, you’ve got a lot to think about. Not only are there three versions of the game available (Standard, Deluxe and 1st Class), but several retailers are offering exclusive pre-order bonuses. These include custom PlayStation 4 themes and DLC content, but you can also pick up a few collectible items if you pre-order from the right locations.

Here’s a breakdown of what each version includes as well as any associated pre-order bonuses.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Standard Edition — $59.99

This is the version to pre-order if you want to snag Final Fantasy VII Remake for the lowest price possible. It comes with the base game, DLC and a few extra goodies depending on the retailer:

  • Chocobo Chick Summon Materia DLC (All Retailers)
  • Double Members Rewards Points (Square Enix Store Exclusive)
  • $10 Reward Credit for Best Buy Members (Best Buy Exclusive)
  • Dynamic Final Fantasy VII Remake PS4 Theme (PlayStation Store Exclusive)
  • Serialized Shinra Key Card (GameStop Exclusive)
  • Collectible Tin (GameStop Exclusive)
  • Double-sided Art Cards (Walmart Exclusive)
  • PlayStation 4 Sephiroth Dynamic Theme (Amazon Exclusive)

Earning $10 at Best Buy for pre-ordering is hard to beat, but the Collectible Tin and Shinra Key Card offered by GameStop certainly give it a run for its money.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition — $79.99

This version has the same pre-order bonuses as the Standard Edition.  It also comes with a few collectibles and extra DLC content:

  • Artbook
  • Mini-Soundtrack
  • Steelbook
  • Cactuar Summon Materia DLC
  • Carbuncle Summon Materia DLC

Final Fantasy VII Remake 1st Class Edition — $329.99

If you’re a die-hard collector — or if you’re swimming in cash like Scrooge McDuck — then the 1st Class edition was made for you. This version is only available through the Square Enix Store and there’s currently a waitlist to even pre-order it. The 1st Class Edition includes:

  • Base Game
  • Double Members Rewards Points
  • Chocobo Chick Summon Materia DLC
  • Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife & Hardy Daytona Box Set
  • Artbook
  • Mini-Soundtrack
  • Steelbook
  • Cactuar Summon Materia DLC
  • Carbuncle Summon Materia DLC

Regardless of which edition you pick up, you’ll be treated to a stunning re-imagining of Midgar when you boot up your PlayStation 4. Oddly enough, Final Fantasy VII Remake isn’t a complete remake. Instead, only the first few hours of the original title will be covered. Square Enix is still trying to figure out how to tackle the rest of the story, but everything we’ve seen so far looks pretty spectacular. Take a peek at the trailer below to get a glimpse of this updated city:
