We have a release date for the classic Final Fantasy 8 Remastered, and it’s 3 September 2019! It will be available for $19.99 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
Relive your journey with Squall Leonhart as he grows beyond SeeD and Balamb Garden. New features will be available in this remaster via the Playstation Blog, including:
- Enhanced visuals: Several characters, enemies, GF, and objects have been refined to look better than ever before.
- Battle Assist: Activate this booster to max out HP and ATB bars – and trigger Limit Breaks at any time. You will lose all HP when you get hit by a critical attack that gives more damage than your HP, or by lethal damage.
- No encounters: Want to explore without fear of attack? Activate this option to turn off random encounters. Event battles must still be done in order to advance the story.
- 3x speed boost: Accelerates time by a factor of three – perfect if you want to speed through easy battles or get somewhere in a hurry. This feature will not apply to certain scenes including movies.
If you pre-order on the Playstation store, you can get a Final Fantasy VIII Static Theme!
