In addition to Final Fantasy VII International (May 16th), Final Fantasy VIII will be released in Japan for PC. Like Final Fantasy VII, the game was originally ported to PC by Eidos in the late 90s. This week’s Famitsu provided the scoop, and announcement is expected at some point for North American and European release.
Earlier this year Final Fantasy VII PC was released worldwide through Square Enix’s online store, but originally, rumblings of a Steam release for both titles were hinted. The re-release featured a cloud saving, which also displayed stats on a website where players could effectively “boost” their HP, MP, and Gil to maximum for those looking to enjoy the story. For those looking for a challenge, Square Enix included a healthy amount of achievements.
