New Final Fantasy VII Version Could Be Coming to PC

Final Fantasy VII might be getting a new, updated, PC re-release, according to some info that was leaked from a Square Enix-registered website.

Before we go any further, note that Square Enix has vehemently denied a Final Fantasy VII remake over and over again, for whatever reason, and that the “leak” is the stuff of rumors. Got your salt grains handy? Great. Moving on.

You can check out the Google cache page here, but the original has already been removed from the web. According to the leak, the PC version of the game would get a number of snazzy new features, such as cloud (Strife) saving and achievements, but it’s not clear if this would just be a re-release of the original PC version that Square released in 1998, or an HD remake. There isn’t any mention of HD features on the leaked page, however.

According to the page, the new FFVII version would go for £7.99 / €9.99, which is approximately U.S. $12.50. Oh, and one other thing: Square Enix issued a non-denial to G4TV, stating that it had nothing to announce regarding FFVII “at this time.” Take that as you will.

What say you guys? Is Final Fantasy VII a game you’re dying to replay?

If modders can make HD versions of Final Fantasy VII in Unreal why can’t Square update it their own game?

Because for them to do a true FFVII remake using a modern game engine 90% of the assets would have to be remade not only that bringing the scale of FFVII to today’s specs would cost them millions.

Then after that no matter how much money they would get for a proper remake people who loved FFVIII or FFIX etc would be requesting remakes of that as well they won’t sit there remaking every older FF.

Even doing an updated version of VII has implications but what I think they are doing is given they re-release games on PSN from psx1\2 they probably want to capitalize on PC as well and we may get a “proper” Win7 binary version of the original released trough STEAM.

Also its one of the most requested games by the GOG.com community and CDProject managed to bring some old ass games back into circulation running properly on win7, so honestly that’s what I believe Square to be doing bringing old classics to the PC via STEAM \ GOG \ etc.

If it really is a remake and HD that doesn’t look like those Playstation 1 Lego block graphics then I am game, I will play FF7 through for first time if so.
