Final Fantasy VII is coming to PC, Square Enix has said today. The announcement brought the game's site to its knees.

No release date or price has been confirmed. Square told VG247 today that "we will be issuing more information within the next 24 hours."

The revamp will include now "a host of new online features". Achievements are to be included, of which there are 36, as is something called the "Character Booster".

"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," said the site.

The game will support cloud saving: "With cloud save support in Final Fantasy VII you can continue your game progress right where you left off, all you need is an internet connection."

Minimum specs for the new version are:

  • Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64-bit)
  • 2GHz Processor or faster
  • 1GB RAM
  • DirectX 9-compatible graphic card

The PC version of FFVII will release "soon," and will be available exclusively through the Square Enix store. It'll be shipped in English, French, German and Spanish.

A Final Fantasy VII remake has been rumoured and begged for since time immemorial. Square president Yoichi Wada recently poured water on the talk, however, saying the project could kill the franchise.
