Final Fantasy VII Re-release Confirmed For PC – Announcement Trailer That Actually Doesn’t Show Anything New Inside

leave a comment »

If you’ve just woken up after being in a fifteen year coma – it’s cool, you can STILL play Final Fantasy VII on your PC.

Square-Enix have announced that Final Fantasy VII will be re-released on the PC sometime this year in downloadable form; confirming the rumours that were swirling around last month, the game will come optimised for new PC hardware, boast achievements, cloud saves and other features in an attempt to make it feel all modern and stuff.

Very kindly, Square-Enix have released both the minimum specs and the announcement trailer for the game, both of which you can see below.

The trailer itself however, is just culled cut-scene footage and as a result, doesn’t exactly show us just how extensively it’s been ‘optimised’ in-game.  Ah well, never mind; it’s like last fifteen years never happened.

I suppose we should just be thankful that IT EXISTS.  The official web-site for the game can be found here, but be warned, people have been hammering the hell out of it all day since the announcement and as a result, it’s going up and down like a sodding yoyo.

Minimum specs for the re-release are:

  • Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64-bit)
  • 2GHz Processor or faster
  • 1GB RAM
  • DirectX 9-compatible graphic card

Final Fantasy VII PC will be released later this year, exclusively on the Square-Enix digital store.
