Adding "a host of new online features."

Square Enix is planning a Steam re-release of Final Fantasy VII, it has been outed.

The recently registered domain which first hinted at the coming announcement, FinalFantasyVIIPC.com, went live for a few moments early this morning. A GOG.com forum member was able to capture its contents before it was taken down. Here’s a cached version of the page for proof.

The Steam release will include “a host of new online features,” including Steam Achievements, “Character Booster,” and “Cloud Saves.”

“Whether you’re a seasoned Final Fantasy VII veteran or exploring this RPG classic for the very first time, show off your in-game accomplishments and put your gaming skills to the test with 36 brand new achievements to unlock. Share your profile with friends online to find out who is the ultimate Final Fantasy fan.

“Find yourself stuck on a difficult section or lacking the funds to buy that vital Phoenix Down? With the Character Booster you can increase your HP, MP, and Gil levels to their maximum, all with the simple click of a button, leaving you to enjoy your adventure.

“Whether you’re away from home or simply using a different computer to play, enjoy Final Fantasy VII wherever you are. With cloud save support in Final Fantasy VII you can continue your game progress right where you left off, all you need is an internet connection.”

The game will cost $12.54 / £7.99 / €9.99. (U.S. price not official.)

    FF VII isn’t a terribly hard game, but whatever…

    That’s Mideel btw, for you FF initiates.

    I have to admit, I’m really surprised here.

    I honestly figured it would be a simple steam release. I agree with rockman29, not so sure I’m digging the booster thing.

    Everything else is awesome though!

  • NCloud

    GOG FTW :)

    Yeah that character booster thing…how does it work again? Does one have to pay to cheat, or are the players given the option to dumbify the game? It’s not like it was difficult to begin with, but that seems so pointless, I mean….where’s the challenge in doing so??

    Also, not to rain on anyone’s parade, but is this official? I dunno but I have a hard time believing any of this is indeed true, sorry. The character booster and the achievements part is what make me believe this simply isn’t real. Prove me wrong, SE!

    Character Booster? So, you can cheat? Are you fucking kidding me?

    • Miranda Lawson

      @xMCXx: Why cheat? I already beat this game and it wasn’t that hard. FF 12 was ALOT harder. The character booster will suck all of the fun out of this game if you ask me.

        @Miranda Lawson:
        That’s the problem with today’s generation of gamers.
        Everything has to be easy and casual.
        Just look at Nintendo’s games in which the game can play itself!

    Will buy again. Steam achievements means I’m gonna have to get the Knights of the Round Materia all over again huh? :(

    Character booster is stupid though. Whoever thought that was a good idea should be fired.

    • Miranda Lawson

      @FearMonkey: Agreed, they should be fired.
