It looks like Square Enix and Sony are planning on giving Final Fantasy fans a belated holiday gift, as a demo icon for the Final Fantasy VII remake has appeared on the PlayStation Store.

The remake for the classic that was released back in 1997 has gotten a ton of trailers throughout this year, as the game is getting ready to officially hit consoles next March. On top of that, select journalists from the gaming world have gotten a chance to play demo versions of the game, and for the most part, it’s been pretty well received by those who have been lucky enough to sample it.

Final Fantasy VII’s demo icon was discovered by Gamestat, which is the same publication that uncovered the artwork for the Resident Evil 3 remake a few days before it was officially announced. So, it’s pretty safe to assume that a demo for the FFVII remake will be announced and revealed soon.

According to the publication, there are four listings on the PlayStation Store for the Final Fantasy VII demo, which are separated by region, as it’ll be available for players in Asia, Europe, Japan, and North America.

Unfortunately, the website didn’t attach a release date for the rumored Final Fantasy VII demo, but if an icon on the PlayStation Store was uncovered, then it’ll probably be available soon. Also, as of right now, it’s unclear if the demo will be available to everyone, or if it’ll only be available for those who have pre-ordered the game.

Aside from The Last of Us Part II, Cyberpunk 2077, and Ghost of Tsushima, the Final Fantasy VII remake is one of the most anticipated releases of next year. If the development cycle remains on schedule, the game will be coming to consoles and PC in March of next year, and it’ll be an episodic release.

Right now, we don’t know how long the first episode of the Final Fantasy VII remake will be, nor do we know when the game’s second episode will be released. Of course, those details will likely be revealed in the coming weeks and months.

The most recent main Final Fantasy release, XV, got a ton of pre-release demos. So, it’s pretty safe to assume that the remake of VII will get at least one demo before the full game is released. So, for now, all we can do is wait for Square Enix to announce when one will become available.
