Get A Job! Final Fantasy V Lands On PC This Month

by Mike Futter on Sep 10, 2015 at 07:40 AM

Final Fantasy V is making the leap to PC, bringing with a number of enhancements it’s picked up along the way. The best part is that you won’t have to wait long to play it.

Since its original release in 1992, Final Fantasy V has been re-released a couple of times. The Game Boy Advance version added visual changes and an additional dungeon. Those remain intact for the upcoming release.

There are also Steam achievements and trading cards, as well as new controls to fit the platform. Square Enix has also tweaked the active-time battle system.

Final Fantasy V will be out on PC on September 24 for $15.99.


Our Take
From a preservation perspective, I’m glad to see Square Enix releasing these games on PC. I wish there were a way to toggle between original release and updated version, though. This version seems to have some of the odd visual changes that were included in the mobile version rather than directly emulating the Game Boy Advance edition.
