Final Fantasy VII Is being Re-re(?)-released for PC!


Sometimes I fail to see the point of something as useless as re-releasing a game that was launched in the 90's and a few years ago in some consoles. Even if its something as massive as Final Fantasy VII. But its happening...
The proverbial milking continues as Square-Enix launches a new Final Fantasy VII, same graphics, same story. The catch? Achievements! Money Boost! Cloud Saves and new PC optimization.



Here is what Square-Enix has to say about this new (taken with a grain of salt) release of Final Fantasy VII:
In Midgar, a city controlled by the mega-conglomerate Shinra Inc., the No. 1 Mako Reactor has been blown up by a rebel group, AVALANCHE.
AVALANCHE was secretly formed to wage a rebellion against Shinra Inc., an organisation which is absorbing Mako energy, destroying the natural resources of the planet. Cloud, a former member of Shinra´s elite combat force, SOLDIER, was involved with the bombing of the Mako Reactor. Can Cloud and AVALANCHE protect the planet from the huge, formidable enemy, Shinra Inc.?

In its main website, you will find tons of media content such as wallpapers, films (if you don't know them by heart already) which will soothe your everlasting desire of a remake, and just be sad enough that this is NOT a remake, but another release of the same thing. I probably need to get my wallet ready to cough up some Gil Euro
