Finally: Square Realizes Final Fantasies Should Be On PC

By Nathan Grayson on February 20th, 2014.

Is that a gun? I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be a gun.

The PC is not entirely bereft of Big Hair And Superfluous Zippers: The Neverending (Candy) Saga, which is sometimes colloquially referred to as “Final Fantasy.” The series’ MMO entries, FFXI and FFXIV, got their starts here, and PlayStation One classics FFVII and FFVIII recently received refurbished Steam ports. That majority of numbered Final Fantasy games, however, have stuck to the realm of buttons, thumbsticks, and cameras that have yet to change gaming in any meaningful way. But that might be changing sooner rather than later. Very late to the party but nonetheless welcome, Square Enix has finally realized that maybe people kinda like playing games on their PCs after all.

Cloud Gaming: Final Fantasy VII On Steam

By Adam Smith on July 4th, 2013.

As I browsed through the list of new releases on Steam this morning, a blaring midi tune began to belch its way into my brain. The screen flashed – a random encounter! Final Fantasy VII had unexpectedly appeared, a comically large sword thrusting from the screen and carrying with it promises of a seemingly endless slog through a bloated story with precisely one memorable scene.

Trouble & Strife For The Final Fantasy VII PC Remake

By Alec Meer on August 6th, 2012.

that makes it look pretty cool, actually.

N.B. – please feel free to interchange the words ‘bad’ and ‘good’ in the next two sentences as you see fit.

Bad news: the deathless 90s JRPG that inspired a hundred million DeviantArt pages, Final Fantasy VII, is to be re-released for PC, in a shinier form with new bits. Good news: its launch over the weekend was pulled due to technical problems.

Squared Off: Final Fantasy VII Confirmed For PC

By Jim Rossignol on July 4th, 2012.

Is late really better than never?
(Yeah, okay, it was released on PC in 1998.)

That’s a delay of fifteen years for the PC version. Could be a record. Anyway, the newsbeasts of VG247 caught the scent of Square’s announcement and we could hear their howls from far across the internet.
