Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo is one of the hot topics for PS4 gamers, with a teaser of the highly anticipated JRPG revival set to drop soon. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2020, with the big HD return to Midgar arriving on the PS4 in March. Fans have long been clamouring for a Final Fantasy 7 Remake, with these demands picking up in 2005 after a PS3 tech demo was revealed.
While this gave an exciting glimpse of what a FF7 Remake would look like, it seemed for years that a full game would never see the light of day.
That wasn’t until 10 years after this tech demo was showcased when Square Enix officially announced the Final Fantasy 7 Remake at E3 2015.
But fans were still in for a long wait, with the release date for the big PS4 game in the end scheduled for almost five years after the E3 announcement.
Fans have had to wait a long, long time for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake – but that wait is almost over.
And to make the wait for the release date, which is just under three months away, easier a Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo looks set to drop.
Over Christmas the Gamstat website, which compiles PS Store listings before they go live, revealed the existence of the upcoming FF7 Remake demo.
So far Square Enix has not confirmed the existence of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo, or given any indication of when it could be coming out.
But fans have seen hopes raised that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo could be dropping soon.
That’s because one YouTuber claims to have played the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo ahead of its release date.
This YouTuber is DreamcastGuy who earlier this week had been teasing they would get to go hands on with a major upcoming demo.
Over the weekend they posted: “Well I just found out I am playing a certain demo tomorrow. Will talk about it in a video soon. NEVER BEEN SO HYPED IN MY LIFE!!!”
And then today they posted: “Spending all day today playing the Final Fantasy VII remake demo!!! Video tomorrow on my spoiler free thoughts on how it looks and plays!!”
In a post online DreamcastGuy described their thoughts on the FF7 Remake demo which they said covers the opening section of the game.
It’s unclear how DreamcastGuy got access to play the FF7 Remake demo.
If it was via Square Enix then it could be a sign that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo release date is fast approaching.
On the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Reddit page fans have speculated that the demo could be out as early as this Tuesday.
That’s because in an official post online Sony has explained that the PS Store gets updated on a Tuesday with new content.
The post said: “The PlayStation Store game content is updated every Tuesday.
“Updates generally occur anywhere from 9am – 7pm PST, but update times are subject to change.
“Movies and TV Shows, however, can be updated as frequently as daily.”
It remains to be seen when the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo does get a release date, but a January launch seems likely.
That’s because FF7 originally launched back in the day in Japan during January 1997.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Square Enix mark that by releasing the demo in the same month that FF7 celebrates such a big anniversary.
