Final Fantasy VII Makes a PC Comeback


Beloved by many gamers as the greatest Final Fantasy of them all and deemed the most overrated by just as many fans, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII is making a comeback. No, not in the enhanced PS3 remake everyone’s been clamoring for — don’t hold your breath for that to ever happen. This re-release is for the PC.

Final Fantasy VII is no stranger to the PC scene. A Windows port was first released in the late 90s, around a year after the original PlayStation version launched. This PC version is slightly different though. Square Enix will be releasing it later this year as a digital download exclusively on the company’s online store. The game itself will remain unchanged, however new features have been added, including 36 in-game achievements, online profile sharing, cloud game saves, and a “character booster” cheat system for increasing HP, MP and Gil when in a pinch.

Additional info, media and wallpapers are available now at the official Final Fantasy VII PC site. For a trip down memory lane, check out the digital download announcement trailer embedded below.
