As the title itself reports, this is the remake of one of the most beloved chapters of the Final Fantasy saga (initially released for PlayStation in 1997). This RGP game, developed by Square Enix for PS4, has been completely reworked compared to the original version, both in terms of the combat system and the story, which was expanded compared to the original version. This meant that Square Enix divided the game into several parts (the second is expected in the coming months, also for PS5).
