The Final Fantasy VII PC re-release won’t have microtransactions

by 10 July 2012

Well, we’re going to look silly on the podcast this week: Square Enix has just confirmed that the upcoming PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII will not have a microtransaction-based system.

Speaking with Kotaku yesterday, Square Enix has shed more light on the “Character Booster” system, which many believed to be a microtransaction-based way to level up your character’s MP, HP and in-game currency.

“No, the Character Booster will not cost real money to use,” a Square Enix said. “We’ll have final pricing info on the game to share soon, but we can confirm that there will be no microtransactions for the upcoming rerelease of Final Fantasy VII on PC.”

Well, that’s kinda vague. Any guesses to how the Character Booster system will actually function, gamers?
