Square-Enix has announced a release date for Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam. The game will make its digital debut on September 3rd, 2019.
To help the game celebrate its 20th anniversary in style, Square-Enix has made the game look better than ever by giving it newly rendered graphics and few new boosts to help you out in battles and improve the overall experience.
- Battle Assist: The ability to always have maxed out HP and ATB, and trigger Limit Breaks at any time.
- No Encounters: An enemy encounter option that allows players to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story event battles.
- 3x Speed Boost: Play through the game with three times the speed.
- The STEAM version will also receive additional functions, including All Items (possess all items except for a few certain items), All Abilities, GF Max Level, Max Gil, Max Magic, All Limit Breaks, and All Cards (possess max number of Triple Triad Cards except for Rare Cards).
In case you don’t remember too well, Final Fantasy VIII sees you step into the shoes of SeeD recruit, Squall Leonheart and resistance fighter, Rinoa Heartilly as the journey to save the world from the evil force, known as the nation of Galbadia.
Pre-orders for the PlayStation®4 system will include a commemorative PlayStation®4 Theme, while pre-purchases on STEAM will include exclusive wallpapers featuring Squall Leonhart and Rinoa Heartilly.
