Recently, Square Enix registered an interesting domain name: FinalFantasyVIIPC.com. Trying to access that page at this time of writing brings up nothing. It doesn’t redirect to any site related to Square Enix or lead to any new website. Other than that, there is no other information on this particular domain name.

Final Fantasy VII was released on the PC as well as the PSOne, though the PC version was published by Eidos. One would predict that Square plans on re-releasing this game digitally, especially now that Square owns Eidos. Others would say that Square simply decided to register the domain name before anyone else did to prevent another stunt like with what happened to Modern Warfare 3. We don’t know either way, but hopefully we’ll hear more about this soon.


About Kyle Emch

Kyle has been studying music at college for about three years now. He's played the piano since he was 6 years old and has been recently been learning how to write music. He has followed the Operation Rainfall movement on Facebook since it started and was happy to volunteer for the website. Just don't mention Earthbound or the Mother franchise around him.

  • If this is indeed the PC version, that’s cool. It was actually the version I originally played back in the day, and if I recall correctly, the localization was at least somewhat better in the PC version. But the bad part about playing the game on PC was that whoever decided on the control layout is a lunatic. They mapped all of the game’s controls to the numerical pad on the keyboard; movement, menu selection, everything. This got particularly ridiculous during moments like the motorcycle chase minigame and gave me hand cramps like you wouldn’t believe.

    If this site really is for a rerelease of the PC version, I hope that they go back and allow for more sane control options. But then again, now that I have the PSOne Classic version on my PS3, I probably wouldn’t bother with it this time around.

    Unless it’s on Steam and includes achievements. Then I’d probably consider it.

  • Come on people, are you oblivious? Crisis Core? Advent Children? Dirge of Cereberus? It’s a pattern, CC, AC, DC…

      So this could be for the long awaited continuation of the Compilation post Dirge?
