Way back in 2016, we ran a story on how Fairy Tail creator Hiro Mashima had finished the newly-released Final Fantasy XV in just two days.
Now the master has done it again, completing Final Fantasy VII Remake in under 24 hours.
At 12:04AM, April 10, Mashima tweeted, “FFVII Remake came! I’ve already finished next week’s work!”

At 5:45PM the same day, the manga-ka tweeted: “I finished FFVII remake! Quickly! Give me more, quickly! For a believer like me, who finished the original 10 times, there were so many unexpected moments! It was so fun!”

Now, remember, Fairy Tail may be over, but it’s not like Mashima has all day to play games: his manga Edens Zero is currently running Weekly Shonen Magazine. And speaking of Square Enix RPGs, Mashima illustrated a Dragon Quest XI manga last year.
A tip of the hat to a gaming and manga madman.
Here’s how Square Enix describes Final Fantasy VII Remake:
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
A spectacular reimagining of one of the most visionary games ever, FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE rebuilds and expands the legendary RPG for today.
