interactive entertainment products in North America (Square Enix), and Valve
Corporation (Valve), a developer of leading-edge technologies and software,
announced today an agreement to bring Square Enix titles to customers in North
America via Steam?, Valve’s leading platform for digital content distribution and
management.

Beginning April 9, THE LAST REMNANTT will be available for purchase via Steam, which
makes PC games available online to more than 15 million users worldwide. An action
RPG from the makers of the FINAL FANTASY? series, THE LAST REMANT will be the first
Square Enix game to utilize Steamworks and be distributed via Steam. Square Enix
will continue to add to its roster of games on Steam, providing users with instant
access – after purchase, they can download the game immediately and start playing.

“We are excited to offer the millions of Steam customers online access to Square
Enix titles beginning with our major action RPG, THE LAST REMNANT,” said John
Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Inc. and Square Enix
Ltd. “Square Enix is committed to delivering the best quality titles to PC gamers
and distribution on Steam is one of the many steps we are taking to increase
accessibility for fans in North America and PAL territories.”

Once players have a Steam account, they can sign in from any PC to access their
Steam-distributed Square Enix games. Because games are associated with their account
and not their computer, players can get lost in the world of their favorite game
anytime, anywhere.

“Square Enix is a fantastic addition to the Steam lineup,” said Jason Holtman,
director of business development at Valve. “We are thrilled that Square Enix chose
to bring its diverse portfolio of titles to Steam and know that our customers will
be ecstatic to hear this news.”
