In preparation for the upcoming release of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade on PlayStation 5, Square Enix has issued an update for the original PS4 release that lets players set up their data for save transfer.
Available for transfer directly from a PS4 or PS5 console, simply select ‘Upload Save Data’ from the main menu and follow the instructions therein. You’ll be able to upload as many saves as you want, but each one must be uploaded on its own. While settings won’t transfer over, trophies will and you might receive multiple notifications from having obtained them in quick succession.
Once the save data has been successfully uploaded, you can then grab the files from ‘Download Save Data’ in the PS5 version of the game.
As a reminder, those who downloaded and played the PS+ version do not qualify for the free PS5 upgrade. You’ll have to buy a digital or physical copy of the game on PS4 to enjoy that bonus.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is due out on June 10 for PS5. FF7R Episode INTERmission will be available as a separate purchase for those upgrading from the PS4 version for $19.99.
