Rumor: Square-Enix Returning ‘Final Fantasy VII’ to PC
24 Jun, 2012
Joystiq reports that it has obtained information that suggest a rerelease of Final Fantasy VII for PC may be close. The information was obtained through a Google Cache of the website FinalFantasyVIIPC.com.
The website does not provide any direct access to the information, though it has been confirmed that the website is owned by Final Fantasy-publisher Square Enix. However, the cache stored by Google reveals that the game will feature achievements, cloud-saving, and some way for users who are stuck to “increase your HP, MP and Gil levels to their maximum, all with the simple click of a button, leaving you to enjoy your adventure.” The website does not state whether this mechanic will be based on micro-transactions.
A release date for the game is not listed, with the cache stating that the game would be “Out Now” for digital download at a price of £7.99 or €9.99 (~$12.50).
The original Final Fantasy VII was released for the original PlayStation in 1997, made its way to the PC in 1998, and has since spawned several spin-offs games and films.
