Final Fantasy 7 To Be Released on PC


 In the tradition of remakes, re-releases, and updates, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy 7 is coming to the PC. Again. After 14 years, the most popular game in the Final Fantasy franchise gets a second, proper port to the PC. The last time this happened was in 1998 and while it was a success, it did feature an unruly amount of bugs. I know I personally could not get past the Ultima Weapon cut scene and was forced to abandon my world-saving antics early.

Unfortunately, this release is not the HD remake anyone was expecting. The PC port will not feature HD graphics, changes in the backgrounds or new CG movies, but will feature uprezzed characters and monsters. Uprezzed means that Squeenix is taking a shortcut in increasing the resolution of everything to make it look nicer on an HD monitor without actually remaking the game with HD graphics.

In an odd pun, the game will feature cloud saves and an editor to maximize a characters health, magic, and money. This comes in addition to the announcement of PSOne compatibility for the Vita, allowing it to play Final Fantasy VII, Tomb Raider, and more with the 1.8 update coming soon.
