If you've been looking for where to buy the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you'll know it's been hard to buy in physical form since its release on April 10. Buying the game digitally was the only option for a lot of players. Now, though, stock of the PS4 title is back at US and UK retailers. Below, we'll explain where you can buy Final Fantasy 7 Remake right now, so you can finally put the game on your shelf next to your other PS4 favorites. 

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is the long-awaited revamp of the PSone classic, and it's definitely one of the year's best games so far, translating much of what was great about the original into a modern-feeling game. This game represents part one in an ongoing series of instalments that retell the story of the original. 

Here's where you can find a copy now. US stock is harder to find than UK stock, so have a quick scan of big traditional retailers if the edition listed below sells out.

Why has it been so hard to buy a physical edition of Final Fantasy 7 Remake?

It's clear Square Enix faced a significant challenge with distributing physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake in the midst of a global pandemic, and it did everything it could to get the game out there. That even meant breaking its own street date across Europe and Australia just to get the game in people's hands.

It was worth it. People got to play the game during this lockdown period, which has no doubt offered welcome relief to fans of the series. 

Now, though, it appears the publisher has managed to get more copies in circulation. Final Fantasy 7 isn't the only game selling out in physical form right now, either. It's been hard to get hold of the Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons for weeks, too.

Hopefully, any supply chain issues have been alleviated for the foreseeable future. In spite of its stock troubles, FF7 Remake still shipped and sold 3.5 million copies of the game in digital and physical form across the first three days of its release.
