It's a surprisingly stealthy release for what Tom (mistakenly) calls the secret best Final Fantasy (opens in new tab) title. After news came out on the Japanese Square Enix site, we weren't sure (opens in new tab) the port was coming West, but it looks like Squenix is bent on completing its collection (opens in new tab) of Final Fantasy games on Steam.
