Final Fantasy VII hits Game Archives
Square Enix brings RPG classic to PSP and PS3.
That oft-rumoured Final Fantasy VII remake is still nowhere to be found, but Square Enix is giving PS3 and PSP owners a way to play one of its biggest classics. Final Fantasy VII became available for download on Sony's Game Archives retro download service today, priced at 1,500 yen.
The Game Archives version is actually Final Fantasy VII International. Released on October 2, 1997, nine months after the original FFVII release, the International version featured added movies, events and enemies along with various other adjustments reflecting the changes that were made when FFVII was brought to international markets.
While the Game Archives service has seen a number of major hits in the past, including Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid, FFVII represents the first time a game has charged more than the service's standard 600 yen price point.
Joining the start of availability of FFVII, Square Enix announced today that its PlayStation Store titles will soon start accruing points through its Square Enix Members service. This will take effect in May but will be retroactive to include all prior purchases.
