The launch trailer for the re-release of Final Fantasy VII on PC from SquareEnix has surfaced on Youtube today for your viewing pleasure and subsiquent nerdgasms. Check it and if like me you find the need, grab a towel and there are smoking areas designated outside.
*Update* Here’s some official word from the press release….
New features include cloud saves and a character booster that allows players to maximize characters health, magic, and gil. Also planned is an in-game achievement system which allows players to explore various facets of the game and share progress with friends online.
