Final Fantasy 5 launches on Steam on Sept. 24

Final Fantasy 5 will come to Windows PC via Steam on Sept. 24, Square Enix announced this week.

The port will have the same features as the iOS version that launched in 2013, including the visuals that Kazuko Shibuya designed for Final Fantasy 5's 2006 launch on Game Boy Advance; the Sealed Temple dungeon that appeared in that game; and the optional boss designed by Tetsuya Nomura.

Nomura's debut came with Final Fantasy 5, where he designed the monsters; he went on to become the longtime director of the Kingdom Hearts series. He's currently overseeing both Kingdom Hearts 3 and the long-awaited Final Fantasy 7 remake announced at E3 2015.

Square says Final Fantasy 5 will get "updated controls and a newly optimized active-time battle system" to streamline it for PC, but the game is not gamepad-supported.
