Final Fantasy PC Ports in Potential GeForce Now Leak
Earlier this week, a data leak that came from Nvidia's GeForce Now service heavily implied that there could be some really exciting Square Enix games coming available for PC gamers. As a leak, it's of course speculative and possibly straight-up incorrect, but if we can be allowed to dream for a bit, this could mean fun times for Final Fantasy gaming on your favorite computing device.
Two games appear on the list that are essentially no-brainers for some point in the future: Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy XVI. There's no reason to think that both of these games won't eventually appear on PC no matter what, and in the case of the former, it's not even the first time it's been seen in a leak. Of course, with no further details, there's no way to know when FF7R might come about, or if it will be the enhanced version released for PS5 with Intergrade. Final Fantasy XVI is almost surely even further down the line, since the game's not complete and will have some level of timed exclusivity to PlayStation 5 anyway.
The other two games might be more interesting, anyway, or at least they would be for me. As described in the leak, those games are titled "Final Fantasy Tactics Remastered" and "Final Fantasy 9 Remake." I, for one, have been wanting a PC port of FFT since the original came out over 20 years ago, and would probably line up to buy that game for the fifth time if such a port were released. For Final Fantasy IX, this would be a really shocking addition if it were a genuine remake. I would suspect that this part of the leak is the result either of a typo or a misinterpretation, honestly; either might suggest that it's another port that matches the existing PC version of FF9, which seems more realistic than a genuine redux of the entire game. If it is a genuine remake, though, that will probably be one spectacular game.
I'll be watching for more information regardless, as this is all potentially exciting stuff!

| Only one here that would be of any real interest to me is the FFT one. I haven't played FFT in years, and if a PC remastered version included the War of the Lions content (not sure why it wouldn't), it would give me material I've never experienced before. One thing that could give me pause (or at least take a lot of get'n used to), though, is if the visuals were changed to any dramatic degree. The early poly models of the other PS1 titles could def use the updates, but I'm still rather enamored with the original FFT sprites.|
As for the others, I think I got my fun out of the original versions of 7 and 9, and I haven't been particularly interested in FF since 12.
