Final Fantasy 7 Remake Sony Walkman Is a Work of Art

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake Sony Walkman is a FFVII collector's dream; unfortunately for PS4 fans, the music player is totally sold out.

Did you know that Sony is still cranking out Walkman systems in 2020? Even better, a now (sold out) Final Fantasy 7 Remake version exists, and it should be on every FFVII fan’s wishlist. Especially if you are anxiously waiting for Final Fantasy 7 Remake 2 news (like we are).

Let’s start off with the bad news — not only is this walkman exclusively being sold in Japan, it is entirely sold out. Like many amazing collector’s editions, it is simply going to have to be something that we admire from afar.

And to help do that, we have YouTuber Dino Bravo who shared an unboxing of the limited edition Sony Walkman. With iconic packaging and an amazing front panel, it’s hard to not fall in love with it — even if music facing smart devices are mid-2000’s retro.

You can catch the full unboxing below:

Is there any chance that we might see a similar release for the product in the US? While it’s unlikely, you never know how the popularity of this Japanese run will drive decisions moving forward. With signs of Final Fantasy 7 Remake 2 peeking its head around the corner, it would be the perfect opportunity.

It’s been a banner year for FFVII — while Square Enix recently revealed that the Remake has topped over 5 million sales worldwide, Xbox Game Pass recently added the original game to its lineup:

In terms of Final Fantasy 7 Remake 2, the game’s director Tetsuya Nomura said that he is hoping to get the sequel out as soon as possible without any major delay in quality. The broader development staff also managed to drop some hints at where the game is going in the latest copy of Famitsu.

Unlike the Sony Walkman, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is available now exclusively on PS4. If you haven’t picked up the game yet, you can grab the game physically on Amazon (currently on sale) to help support DualShockers.
