Additional Information:


Final Fantasy VII was the first Final Fantasy to be made on a 32-Bit console and feature 3D polygonal characters. Sony Computer Entertainment handled the publishing of the game outside of Japan for the PlayStation® including the PAL market, making it the first Final Fantasy to be released in PAL territories. A digital PlayStation® version was released on PlayStation®Network in 2009 and is compatible with PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Portable and PlayStation®Vita. Although there are no differences between the PlayStation® CD and PlayStation®Network digital download, the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita have smoothing and faster load time options.

It was also the first Final Fantasy to have a re-release as an international version which included both Ruby WEAPON and Emerald WEAPON bosses which were not included in the original Japanese version of the game, as well as featuring other small improvements (all of which were included in the other releases). The fourth disc of the International version included galleries and other interactive media. Despite the name 'International', this version was only released in Japan.

Final Fantasy VII was also the first to be officially released for the PC. Published by Eidos, it features small improvements such as the ability to run in 640X480 resolution, many typos in the script were fixed, and other small graphical enhancements. In 2012 it was digitally rereleased for the PC on the Square Enix Store and featured additional features such as 36 achievements to unlock, cloud saves, a character booster and the ability to run the game in 1920X1080 resolution, however there are no graphical improvements. It was later ported to Steam.
