A couple of months (or years) ago, Square Enix’s classic 3D Final Fantasy games appeared on Steam’s registry. As always, most of us thought that it was a matter of time before they’d hit Valve’s distribution service but unfortunately, they have not appeared yet. All hope seemed lost, however, yesterday Square Enix registered a new domain called FinalFantasyViiPC.com.
Now obviously – and after that amazing Agnis Philosophy tech demo that was running on the PC – some of you hope for a FFVII remake. Well, don’t get your hopes up everyone. This is not the case and if there was a FFVII remake, it would not make its debut on the PC. It would be cool, but let’s be realistic here: it won’t happen anytime soon so don’t get excited for something like that.
Our guess is that Square Enix is gearing up for a digital re-release of Final Fantasy VII on both GOG and Steam. Obviously, this re-release will support higher resolutions and will – hopefully – fix some of the game’s bugs that were introduced in the PC version.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
