Square Enix's Steam sale chops chunks off Final Fantasy and more


Lightning Returns....for fat bargains!

It's no surprise that here at Japanator we're into Japanese games, but we're also into saving a bit of money while getting them, which makes Square Enix's Publisher Weekend sale on Steam quite relevant to both of those interests.

"But Josh," you might protest, "Square Enix's Japanese games tend to be console-based!" And you'd be generally correct. The sale features a buttload of western games like the Thief, Just Cause, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, and the other fruits of Square Enix's acquisition of Eidos some years ago.

Hope remains for the otaku gamer, though, and its name is Final Fantasy. The franchise's PC offerings, including Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, and Final Fantasy VII and VIII are all half-off through March 7th, with a 33% discount on the Slime Edition of Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below. Not a bad haul if you're reluctant to boot up your PS3 or PS4 and want some JRPG goodness to sink into.
