It seems like every year Final Fantasy XIII is released on a new streaming service and 2017 is no different.

Square Enix has released Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 for Yahoo! Game Japan's new game streaming platform that has just begun a beta test period.

Through HTML5 you will be able to stream Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 to your web browser on any device with a compatible web browser. It supports Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari.

You can even play them on Mac. Linux is not mentioned but I wouldn't be surprised if it can be played on it as well.

You can play the games with a game controller, keyboard and/or mouse.

It's currently free during the beta period, no pricing information seems to be available yet.

In order to play the games on the service you will simply need a Yahoo! Japan account.

It's likely Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be added at a later date.

This joins an ever-growing list of streaming versions of the games.

Broadmedia released the entire trilogy on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore and have continued updating them including added gamepad/controller and TV support.

The entire trilogy is also available on Hikari TV.

And Ubitus released a Google Cast Edition of Final Fantasy XIII for iOS and Android before later releasing another streaming version for Xbox One in China.

The entire trilogy was also available on PlayStation Now in Japan while the first two games were available on the service in North America and Europe however all of Square Enix's titles were removed once the rental option was removed and Sony shifted to subscription only.

That's a lot but we're just waiting for it to be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would also be cool.
