There’s been a lot of talk recently about remaking Final Fantasy VII, which was first released back in 1997. Though the game set several sales records and received widespread acclaim, character designer Tetsuya Nomura recently said new titles take precedence over remakes.
That still hasn’t stopped Square Enix this week from registering the domain name FinalFantasyviiPC.com.
The domain was registered on June 15, 2012, according to Whois records. Although the name had been registered before to Tippo Pasha a resident of Norway, it appears to have expired back in 2010.
Considering Square hasn’t confirmed a remake is in the works, the purchase of the name may be nothing more than the company protecting its intellectual property.
At the time of this story, the domain name doesn’t resolve to a web page.
[UPDATE June 21, 2012:. A leaked product description suggests a new edition of Final Fantasy VII could be on its way to Steam.]
