Final Fantasy VIII Remaster
Deep down, many gamers secretly hoped Square Enix would eventually remaster Final Fantasy VIII, but they also realized it was a bit of a pipe dream. We were confident the company had devoted most of its manpower to titles like the Final Fantasy VII Remake and wouldn’t be able to remaster FFVIII, at least until later.
However, Square Enix somehow managed to work remastering another beloved classic game into its busy schedule.
Even though Final Fantasy VIII isn’t being remade from the ground up like Final Fantasy VII, it is still receiving a visual overhaul that puts it on par with the likes of Final Fantasy X. Plus, the music is as awesome as ever, and odds are good the Final Fantasy VIII remaster will ship with features such as increased speed mode.
Much like Square Enix’s other remasters, the Final Fantasy VIII remaster will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Better yet, it will release later this year, so gamers don’t have to wait too long.
