A leaked product description hints that Final Fantasy VII could be headed to Steam.



If the hints prove accurate, the refreshed version of the legendary RPG would feature 36 achievements, online profiles, cloud saving, and a "Character Booster" item, the description of which reads as such:


"Find yourself stuck on a difficult section or lacking the funds to buy that vital Phoenix Down? With the Character Booster you can 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 price for the game on the listing was set at £7.99/€9.99.


The description appeared on FinalFantasyVIIPC.com, but only briefly. The domain, spotted by the GOG Forum, was registered by Square Enix June 15.

Neat. I'd probably pick this up and add it to the 100 other games I haven't played. lol

I'd love this to happen; but hopefully it's an actual re-image and not just another shoddy port.

CPressland, Final Fantasy VII did, in all actuality come to the PC. It was co-developed with Eidos. http://www.pcgamesre...num-pc-Sale.jpg

Sounds like a cheap cash in, is probably just going to be updated to run on Windows 7 with some bull**** microtransaction rubbish built in.

I don't want a remake but higher detail backgrounds and higher poly characters would be nice.

Why would there be microtransactions in an update of a game from the 90s??

Did you read the OP?

You will be able to buy a "character boost" to get XP, Gil (money), items, etc..

If the graphics are redone/HD then it would be good otherwise the old PC port can be hacked to work on modern PCs

I'd love to see VII-IX on there. Though, the card games in the 8 and 9 always bog me down because I just can't keep myself from playing. :p

Hopefully, if this is true, the controls don't suck.

Character boost pack == the good old FF7 Savegame Editor.... (but it makes the game too easy, removing all the fun)
BTW I replayed FF7 on a psx emulator a couple of years ago and had a lot of fun.
Now I'm doing the same with FF-X and it's great.
