After some strong indiction, then leaked information, then the announcement itself, Square Enix finally does it.

Today Square Enix releases the updated re-released PC version of Final Fantasy VII, now available exclusively on Square Enix’s online store as a digital copy for $11.99.

It may not be an HD remake, but it’s still something.

*Update* The game was pulled from their website, it seems it was a mistake on Square’s part. Thankfully they will give a refund to all those who paid for it. Sorry about that folks.

This version has new features, all which are the following:

■ Achievements – Whether you’re a seasoned FINAL FANTASY VII veteran or exploring this RPG classic for the very first time, show off your in-game accomplishments and put your gaming skills to the test with 36 brand new achievements to unlock. Share your profile with friends online to find out who is the ultimate FINAL FANTASY fan.’

■ Cloud Saves – If you’re away from home or simply using a different computer to play, enjoy FINAL FANTASY VII wherever you are. With cloud save support in FINAL FANTASY VII you can continue your game progress right where you left off (Requires Internet Connection. Saves can only be transferred between a maximum of 3 computers at any one time).

■ Character Booster – Find yourself stuck on a difficult section or lacking the funds to buy that vital Phoenix Down? 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.

■ Optimized for PC – FINAL FANTASY VII has been updated to support the latest hardware and Windows Operating Systems.
