Over the weekend we reported that some lucky fans already got their hands on the highly-popular remake of the 1997 classic. Last week, Square Enix already posted an update stating that it cannot control the game's arrival date due to the distribution of the game being affected by measures against the COVID-19 outbreak. "As we prepare for the release of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE on April 10, we wanted to keep you updated on how the proactive measures being taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus are likely to affect the distribution and retail landscape in western regions at launch", the publisher wrote.

Understandably these restrictions are being implemented so that essential items can reach their destination as fast as possible."
