Here’s how much space you’ll need for Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PS4

A leaked image of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake box art has emerged online, teasing exactly how much hard drive space will be required for the epic JRPG. 

The image which recently surfaced online appears to show the back of Korean packaging and appears quite legitimate. It claims that the upcoming PS4 exclusive will require over 100GB of space and will be spread across two blu-ray discs.

If true, your console will require an absurd amount of space just to launch the game, and chances are a handful of things might need deleting if your hard drive is hurting for gigabytes. We can’t say this massive install size comes as a big surprise, though. 

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is set to launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020 following a brief delay, acting as the first episode in a major project from Square Enix. The original game is so vast in its story and locations that telling it in a single episode has proven impossible. 

Square Enix has confirmed that work on the next episode has already begun, but we imagine it will be a number of years away at the very least, and will likely arrive on next generation platforms such as the PS5. Either way, we can’t wait to finally see the first episode for ourselves in all its glory. 

“A few short years ago a Final Fantasy 7 Remake felt like a distant pipedream, but now I’ve had it in my hands, I can’t wait for more – and it’s less than a year away. I try not to fall victim to nostalgia, but I feel Final Fantasy 7 Remake is pursuing far more than that,” reads our hands-on preview.

This isn’t planned to be a vanilla remake either, with recent footage teasing new characters, location and the addition of enhanced combat mechanics alongside side quests, which the player can take on across the world of Midgar.
