Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns Targets December PC Release

 

Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns is coming to PC and targets December 2015 release, this will mean that the whole Final Fantasy XIII series will be available for PC, which is a great thing for Final Fantasy fans. 

Lightning Returns was originally planned for an Autumn release on PC, but a recent announcement from producer Yoshinori Kitase has said that the game will come at a later date than expected. This quote was originally in Japanese, but it has been translated into English by SiliconEra

 

    Producer Kitase speaking. This is a development status report on the Windows PC version of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. We are currently finishing up the last parts, so it’ll be just a little longer until it is complete. At this rate, it looks like it’ll release sometime in December.

We apologize for making you wait longer, as we previously said that it will release sometime in fall. We’ll have an announcement once more details are available.

 

 

 The previous ports for Final Fantasy XIII games on PS have been so far less than stellar, with both of them being locked to 720p 60FPS at launch were generally considered as very buggy releases until several patches were implemented. Now both games are no longer locked to 720p, so gamers can now enjoy the game at resolutions which are above it's console counterparts. 

Hopefully Lightning Returns will have a better port than other Final Fantasy titles on PC, but right now that remains to be seen.

@WYP , your OP the "read more" link just goes to the picture and not the article at

Just a heads up brah.

Also, the part where it says...

It should be noted that yeah, resolution is selectable for both screen and shadow resolutions and MSAA is selectable too... but the port still isn't a 60fps port. The HUD actually holds the framerate back... something that could have been easily patched but never did.

Here's my tests that I put on imgur:

Crazy isn't it? Another way to test it? Walking around the world outside combat... if your framerate slumps? Try hitting the 1 button on your keyboard or select on a gamepad to disable your minimap... BLAM! framerate jumps up right?Quote

If they did a proper remake of FF VII I would buy it even if it cost as much as my PC no questions asked. First game I ever played.Quote

That would be a load of fun. Definitely one of the unique FF games.

The minor engine upgrade version on Steam is so far the best looking version to date, even spanking OpenGL on Emulators. Sadly the backgrounds weren't redone or used original source versions... might have gotten lost over time is my guess. That's the problem Double Fine ran into when doing an HD Remaster of Grim Fandango.

There is a remaster/extended version of FF VII coming to the PS4... no mention of it coming to PC though. Only time will tell if Square Enix intends to continue its renewed relationship with PC.
