Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Square Enix Refunding All Who Accidentally Bought Final Fantasy VII Early

Posted on Tuesday, August 7 @ 09:40:25 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Did you see that Final Fantasy VII was available for purchase last weekend? Did you buy it and then found out you couldn't play it? Square Enix is awfully sorry about that.

Square Enix accidentally launched the new PC remake of Final Fantasy VII before the game itself was live. As a result, everyone who bought it couldn't play it. As an apology to everyone who was inconvenienced by their mistake, Square Enix will refund everyone who bought it early and hand out free copies of the original FFVII on PC.

The following is the official statement the company sent over to Kotaku.

This weekend, our teams were testing the product website for the upcoming relaunch of Final Fantasy VII on PC. While the website was being tested in its live state, a small number of people were able to purchase a pre-release build of the game. For those customers, Square Enix will be offering full refunds for the purchases and for their inconvenience, a free version of the classic Final Fantasy VII on PC when it is launched.

We want to thank our community for their continued support and excitement regarding the upcoming rerelease of Final Fantasy VII. We will have more information to share about the launch of this anticipated title shortly.

That's a fairly nice compensation package for spending $12 early. In other words, it pays to stalk Square Enix's e-commerce pages.
