As someone who’s been waiting with bated breath to dive into Square-Enix’s PlayStation 4-exclusive reimagined take on Final Fantasy VII, this news does come as a bit of a punch in the gut. Still, it’s good to see the developer taking the extra time to ensure that Final Fantasy Remake is the best it can be when it releases a few weeks later than originally anticipated. Here’s hoping that extra push to polish the title ensures players will be treated an adventure to remember when the game – the first chapter in an episodic series – finally hits retail.
