Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is great on PS5 — transferring save data is not


Final Fantasy 7 Remake was, surprisingly, one of our favorite games of 2020. While the game could have easily been little more than a graphical upgrade to an old favorite, it instead reworked the gameplay from the ground up, and built on the original’s story in subversive ways. Now, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is here, bringing enhanced graphics and gameplay on the PS5, as well as a whole new story chapter for fan-favorite ninja Yuffie Kisaragi.

It’s a shame, then, that getting started in Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is such a time sink. Before I ever hit “New Game,” I had to dedicate about three hours to making sure that my save data transferred over intact. The process isn’t difficult, but it’s incredibly convoluted — and if you’re on an Internet plan with a data cap, then it’s downright wasteful.
