Square Enix has confirmed a PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII following a leak late last month. However, unlike we wrongfully asummed (which we probably shouldn’t have done), it will be available “exclusively through the Square Enix Store,” and not on Steam.
As detailed before, the game has three new key (online) features:
- Achievements – 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.
- Character Booster – 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.
- Cloud Saves – 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.
A release date has not yet been set. It is currently listed as “coming soon.” Visit the game’s official site here. Watch the debut trailer below.
