Not sure if it has the Tifa theme but if you look at post 14161 there is a UK promotion.
It seems the promotion only covers the 5 DLC items, not that I could find any of these packs in the supermarkets yesterday... everything sold out due to panic buying.

Is anyone from the US able to get codes from butterfingers? I am able to pay back if so.

FFVII Remake OST is up for pre-order on the US store FYI.
Almost there! Hang in there, y'all.

Hot damn, seven discs? That's gonna be a lot of music.

Hope this is put on something else like Amazon; shipping costs are insane.

Hm yeah, i don't think every disc will be dedicated to FFVIIR music.... By that, i mean, there will be quite a bit of FFVII OG songs.

Just out of interest is the poll just for original FFVII or both?

Good to hear so much praise for the combat, there was a lot of that after the XV demo as well though and the combat in that game ended up being ass so still slightly cautious

I mean, given that the OG FFVII OST was three discs worth of music, if they included every single track from the original (and that's probably unlikely), we'd still be left with four full discs specifically for Remake.

I wonder what that eighth bonus disc will entail.

The original. I think the poll was put there some time before the leaks happened.

No i meant there's a jukebox in Remake with tracks from the older FF games, i suspect they will be included in this OST pack. That could take at least one disc.

Ah, you said "quite a bit of FFVII OG songs", so I thought you meant FFVII tracks specifically.

I dunno, I feel like they'd be stretching the definition of "Original Soundtrack" if this release ends up being even a partial compilation from older works. If anything, I would think they would designate the jukebox tracks to the bonus disc.

On the Japanese SE store the bonus disc is the Jukebox tracks.

Two weeks ago I was thinking about how I wished this game was being released on the original date so all of us in quarantine would have something to dive deep into...

At this point though, I'm happy to not have the distraction so I can fully acclimate to the lifestyle before the game comes and kills all my productivity. Maybe having this to look forward to is helping me. Who knows.

Really interesting interview. It reiterated a lot of what we knew but its definitely made me more excited to see what their plan is for endgame content. Also this “The key to navigating this floor lies in using Red XIII’s unique physical abilities to overcome environmental obstacles. Letting the player experience his heroics in this way is something that I’m confident will please the fans.” is intriguing; do they have something playable up their sleeve for Red XIII still even though he isn’t available in battle? I wonder if it is a more difficult environmental puzzle as they seemed to allude those would be a thing this time with the rather simple tutorial lasers in the 1st reactor.

Nothing on the EU side of things re: the official soundtrack or that hardcover art book yet. Will order both as soon as they're available.
