To be honest, we never expected it to happen. We're so used to Japan getting awesome PS1 titles that never come to the US or Europe, we just assumed Final Fantasy VII
would be one of them
. The ESRB says otherwise, however, as it has rated
the game for both the PSP and PS3, meaning that we could see it release at any time. Wouldn't that make make a great E3 week treat?
Whether this will be released in Europe is at the whim of Square Enix, though there is no listing for the game on the European ESRB equivilent, PEGI. Like Resident Evil: Director's Cut
, this may be exclusive to America.
