Final Fantasy 7 Remake Could Be Coming to PS Plus in March, But Won’t Be Upgradeable to PS5 Version

The PS4 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake could be coming to PS Plus next March, at least in Japan – but it won’t upgrade freely to the new PS5 version.As pointed out by Twitter user aibo, the Japanese PS Store listing for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade includes small print that indicates the original PS4 game will be added to PS Plus, with the odd detail that the small print says it was added on March 1, which is… next week. Roughly translated, that listing adds that, “The PlayStation 4 version ‘FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE‘ obtained as a free play by subscribing to PlayStation Plus cannot be upgraded to the PlayStation 5 version.”

It’s not clear exactly how that upgrade process would be blocked, given that most upgradeable PS4/PS5 games offer a new version automatically – it may be that the game is offered as a separate ‘PS Plus Editon’ to prevent an upgrade. It’s also worth pointing out that Japanese PS Plus games can differ from those in other territories. We’ve contacted Sony and Square Enix for comment.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade was announced at yesterday’s PlayStation State of Play event, and does offer free upgrades (with save game transfer) to those who bought Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PS4. It seems that privilege won’t extend to those who claim a PS Plus version.

Intergrade is an expanded edition of FF7 Remake, featuring performance and graphics modes, improved textures, fog effects, lighting, and faster load times, as well as a new photo mode and support for the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback. Alongside Intergrade, a bonus episode featuring Yuffie will be released, which will only be playable for owners of the PS5 version of the game.
