Final Fantasy VII released on Steam

Much-loved Square Enix RPG is finally available on download service

Final Fantasy VII has finally been released on Steam, more than two years after it was originally rumoured to be coming to the service.

Square Enix re-released the JRPG classic on PC last year, but it was only being sold through its own online store. Now the game can be bought from Steam for £9.99 / $11.99.

The Steam version has partial controller support, as well as 36 Steam achievements. It requires 3GB of hard drive space.

Fans originally discovered Final Fantasy VII and VIII on Steam more than two years ago, when they found the games listed on Valve's Content Description Record, which lists all the games on its servers.

A year later, a leaked Final Fantasy VII Steam product description page once again suggested the game would be heading to the service soon. That was back in June 2012.

Final Fantasy VII is a game that needs no explanation, with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide since its initial release in 1997.
