Final Fantasy VII Remake has finally arrived on PlayStation 5 as the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, which includes free upgrades for the console as well as a paid DLC expansion featuring Yuffie. As we’ve seen with the PlayStation family of consoles between PS4 and PS5, transferring game saves isn’t just as easy as auto-saving them to the cloud and downloading them to PS5. This was the case with games like Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, and has now re-emerged with the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. This guide shows you how to transfer your saved game from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5.
To get started, you need to have access to the PS4 version of the game, whether you are just turning your PS4 back on or accessing the PS4 version on PS5. To do the latter, after you’ve already installed Intergrade, you’ll need to go to the icon on the dashboard, press options, then go to the game version and switch to the PS4 version.
Whichever way you go about it, make sure you have the new update from last week and fire up the PS4 version of the game to get started. Go beyond the title menu and you will be taken to the screen where you can select things like News Game etc. Scroll down to Upload Save Data here and select it. Now select the specific space you want to upload and do just that. You can upload several if you want, but they must be done one at a time.
When you’re done with that, switch to the PS5 version of the game and launch it. As before, go past the title menu to the menu that starts with New Game. In a similar way, scroll down and this time choose the opposite option titled Download Save Data. The uploaded save status is displayed and you are asked to confirm the download. Do that and now your existing save will be carried over to Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade on PS5. This not only does the save process itself, but also any trophies you had in the PS4 version for the PS5 version.
That’s all you need to do to get your save game over to the PS5 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Just keep in mind that you can take on additional saves if you want to choose another one too.
