Final Fantasy XIII lands on PC in October, with the sequels coming next spring

Final Fantasy XIII

Final Fantasy continues to invade Steam. Yesterday, Final Fantasy IV appeared, sneaking on there with little warning, and now a much more recent installment in the venerable JRPG series is making its way onto PC through the platform. 

It’s Final Fantasy XIII

The latest core game in the series launched on consoles way back in 2010, but will now make the move to PC on October 9th.

Despite being one of the most divisive games in the series, Final Fantasy XIII spawned two sequels – XIII-2 and Lightning Returns, the latter of which was a bit of a wet fart. Both sequels will also appear on Steam, but not until Spring next year.

It’s not clear if the PC versions will be different from their console counterparts – the Steam store page is absent any real information at the moment beyond the minimum and recommended system requirements.
