With all the hype the game received pre-launch, it was no secret that Final Fantasy 7 Remake was going to sell like pancakes. Despite being hampered by issues stemming from the COVID-19 outbreak like closed retailers and shipping delays, the game still managed one of the most impressive sales numbers in 3 days, bagging 3.5 million copies shipped and sold digitally.

The official Final Fantasy 7 Remake Twitter account popped the news of the impressive achievement:

With Final Fantasy 7 Remake being a PlayStation Exclusive (for the time being), it joins God of War and Spider-Man as the top selling PS4 exclusives, each with sales over 3 million copies.

We absolutely loved the game, calling it a triumph in every aspect of the word, setting the stage perfectly for the next installments. You can check out our review of the game down below:
