Square Enix Joins Steam

Titles from Final Fantasy series developer Square Enix will soon begin appearing on Valve's PC digital distribution platform Steam, the two companies announced today.

Coming April 9, the PC version of The Last Remnant will be Square's first Steam release, and will also integrate Steamworks for as-yet-unspecified functionality. The action-RPG arrived on Xbox 360 last fall, with a PlayStation 3 release due later on.

The announcement added that Square will "continue to add to its roster of games on Steam" in North America and Europe, but did not specify any other titles or pricing. Supreme Commander 2, which Square is publishing, represents a likely candidate.

"Square Enix is committed to delivering the best quality titles to PC gamers and distribution on Steam is one of the many steps we are taking to increase accessibility for fans in North America and PAL territories," said Square Enix CEO John Yamamoto.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

      With Square about to buy Eidos, which handled the PC port and did some code work, it's actually possible.

              they must live in another universe where it wasn't required :-D

              as for Wadmaasi and Inadrys, go play it. The graphics haven't aged well but its a great game

                It came out when I was more interested in LEGO than RPGs :D I'll have a peek and see if there is any way to get it to run on my system, perhaps!

                  I think there are patches to get the PC version running on a modern computer, and Playstation emulators work well. Of course you'd have to find a version of FF7 to play on either option. I'm sure ebay would do the trick.

      if they do they need to re-render the cutscenes.. PS1 resolution of 320x240 @ 15fps is not acceptable!!
