Square Enix has completed the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy’s transition to PC. The third installment, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, is available on Steam today.

The port includes a variety of graphical options and almost all of the DLC released on consoles. You’ll get a number of costumes, the Japanese voice acting, and additional weapons and shields. The only thing missing is the Final Fantasy VII Aerith costume.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is priced at $15.99. Note: The press release announcing Lightning Returns listed the price as $15.99. Steam currently shows a regular price of $19.99, discounted to $17.99 through December 17. We've reached out to Square Enix for clarification. 

Also coming this month, is Final Fantasy VI. Unfortunately, as we previously covered, it’s not the SNES or Game Boy Advance version. It’s a port of the mobile iteration.


Our Take
While the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy certainly isn’t the most beloved of the decades-old franchise, having these accessible on PC is great. While your last-gen consoles might be collecting dust in a closet, you can always dive back into older games on PC.
