Final Fantasy VII + VIII Steam-bound At Last?

March 14th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Over a year ago, buzz began around a few stealthy updates to Steam that indicated a possible re-release of the PC versions of Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII. Last year, Square Enix went ahead with Final Fantasy VII PC — but as an exclusive to its own eStore. Fast forward to today, where new updates to Steam including the EULA (End User License Agreement) for Final Fantasy VII have led some to believe that Steam-powered ports are still on their way.

Final Fantasy VIII is not exempt, as updates to its Steam registry include achievements were uncovered. The achievements pertain to collecting various Guardian Forces and SeeD Ranks — or completing sidequests and amassing Gil.

For discerning PC gamers and Final Fantasy enthusiasts, would you be more inclined to buy these games through a service like Steam or through Square Enix’s eShop? How does the inclusion of DRM (which came with Final Fantasy VII’s PC re-release) factor into your purchasing decisions? What new features of a PC re-release do you find the most interesting? What would you like to see Square Enix add for this type of release?

    This is like beating on a dead horse, they’ve exploited the ps1 generation’s games enough, don’t you think? When a game has nothing new to offer, what’s the point of re-re-releasing it?

    @alexsam
    If a port or re-release means more people can experience these games, I don’t see any harm in it. Especially people without access to the a PlayStation or earlier Windows OS.

    The games are preserved from their original releases, and even have new tertiary features like achievements and cloud saving.

    If Square Enix hacked bits out of it to sell on the side, then that would definitely be exploitative.

    As long as they also release it Mac-compatible, I’ll be happy.

    The chocobo side-game for FFVIII that came with the original PC version. Awesome items, a richer game experience.

    Just remake 7 & 9 already. (8 can take a flying leap with 13 into the abyss)
