Not natively no, but through Android emulation, it can. Follow these steps to get Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis up and running on PC:

  1. Download BlueStacks 5 to your PC and install it.
  2. Run ‘BlueStacks multi-instance manager’, and click on ‘Instance’ in the bottom-left corner of the app.
  3. Select ‘Fresh instance’, then select ‘Nougat 64-bit’ from the “Choose Android Version” dropdown menu, then click Next.
  4. For the dropdown menus here, select:
    1. ‘High (4 Cores)’ for “CPU cores”.
    2. ‘Enhanced (4 GB)’ for “Memory allocation”.
    3. ‘Landscape’ and ‘1600 x 900’ for “Resolution”.
    4. ‘X86 & ARM’ for “ABI setting”.
    5. ‘High Performance’ for “Performance Mode”.
  5. Select the ‘240’ radio button for “DPI”, and click Create.
  6. Back on the main screen of the BlueStacks multi-instance manager, click ‘Start’ on your brand new Instance in the list.
  7. The initial boot will take some time to complete, and may even seem like it has stalled, but be patient.
  8. Once launched, go to ‘Settings’ in the bottom-right corner, and under ‘Graphics’ in the left menu, select:
    1. ‘Compatibility’ for “Graphics engine mode”.
    2. ‘DirectX’ for “Graphics renderer”.
    3. Click ‘Save Changes’.
  9. Under ‘Phone’ in the left menu, set “Choose a predefined profile” to ‘OnePlus 5’. Save Changes again.
  10. Reboot the app. It will load a lot faster this time.
  11. From within the instance, load the Play Store app, login and then proceed to download, install, and finally run Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis!

It’s also worth keeping an eye on the Google Play Games app for PC. There’s no support for Ever Crisis on the app yet, but perhaps it will come sometime in the future.
