Square Enix confirms the disappointing Final Fantasy news

Square Enix makes baffling decisions sometimes, even if that means leaving money on the table. Over the weekend, the publisher revealed that the highly-requested Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters are finally coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2023. That wasn’t surprising since rumors have been flooding the internet; The real surprise was that the physical copies were given a very limited release without notice. The announcement also came at 1 a.m. ET, when a lot of people were asleep. By the time most people woke up to the news, they could only be added to the pre-order queue. However, the website has been updated to say that copies are no longer available.

News of the change was shared on Twitter by @Wario64 and can be found in the tweet embedded below.

It is difficult to overestimate the strangeness of all these circumstances! Ever since the Pixel Remasters were first announced, fans have been begging to see them launch on consoles. Final Fantasy fans may be some of the most ardent fans of all of gaming, and die-hards have spent the last day or so begging Square Enix to make more copies available. This is despite the fact that the physical version yielded an exorbitant price point; The price for the standard version was $74.99, while shipping was $20 more.

Pixel Remasters don’t have an exact release date yet, so it’s possible that Square Enix can still reverse its decision and make more copies available. However, this is the same company that exclusively released cloud versions of Kingdom Hearts games on Nintendo Switch, when fans were also begging for a physical release. Given that, it’s hard to say if Square Enix will give fans a chance to give them their money. The company’s social media posts have been inundated with requests to make more copies available, so Square Enix must have been aware of the request. For now, it seems fans aren’t out of luck.

Did you secure a pre-order? Do you think Square Enix will make more copies? Tell us in the comments or share your thoughts directly on Twitter and on Hive at @tweet To talk about all things gaming!
