Final Fantasy VII PC re-release launched and pulled

In July, Square Enix confirmed it would re-release Final Fantasy VII, perhaps the best known of the single player games in the long running RPG series, for the PC. This weekend, a few people were able to download the game but Square Enix quickly pulled the game from circulation with no explanation.

As reported by Joystiq, the game was available to download on Square Enix's website for a few hours on Saturday night before being pulled. Even for those few gamers who downloaded and purchased the game, they found that they could not get the game to run, due to an issue with its SecuROM DRM set up.

It looks like Square Enix had basically jumped the gun a little bit, before the game was ready to be made available to the general public. We will give you an update on when the publisher makes its Final Fantasy VII re-release official.

The new version will have a number of new features, including being able to unlock 36 achievements, a cloud-based save game feature and, more curiously, a Character Booster feature that will let players max out their character stats. It's currently unknown how this feature will be incorporated into the final game.
