A new portal page for the Final Fantasy XIII saga has gone live and prominently featuring the Steam logo. The site, launched today, features the Steam image next to logos for already confirmed platforms. Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII were originally released on Xbox 360 and PS3, and all three are coming to Japan’s Dive In mobile streaming app, as announced last week.
Square Enix’s not announced any PC ports of the JRPG trilogy so take all this with a pinch of salt. That said, the publisher does seem to have a few things up its sleeve for the Tokyo Game Show, which is taking place today through the 21st of September. Earlier this year, Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase told Eurogamer he was “definitely interested” in pursuing PC versions for future games, and elaborated on why the FF13 saga wasn’t released on PC initially.
“Let’s not forget, when we developed the Final Fantasy 13 series, all three titles, at the early stages of development we were working on PC,” Kitase told Eurogamer. “Then we had to port it to the consoles. As far as the technology is concerned, it would have been possible for us to make a PC version, but we decided against it for two reasons: We looked at the market situation and we didn’t think it would be a good idea, and also it would have involved lots of complex issues like security. So we decided not to do it this time around.”
FF 13 and FF 14 were brought to Steam along with PlayStation entries Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII last year, though of those Final Fantasy III was the only one not already available on PC. We may find out either way later this week.
