During the Square Enix Livestream presentation at E3, Square Enix announced that the long awaited and requested remaster of Final Fantasy VIII will, at last, be making its way to current-gen consoles in 2019; joining the previously released Final Fantasy Remastered titles on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC(Steam) and Xbox One family of consoles.

From Square Enix: “In Final Fantasy VIII, the military nation of Galbadia has declared war on the Dukedom of Dollet, who must hire the mercenary force, SeeD. Squall Leonhart, a new member of SeeD, together with his friends and Rinoa Heartilly, a member of a resistance group, get pulled into the war, unaware of their fated task to save the world.”

  • if only they took out that item-style to magic

  • Jesus Christ

  • empirefall

  • eijin_kiver

    doesn’t look that remastered to me, but FF8 on Nintendo Switch!
    Great news!

  • empirefall

    Square-enix should have a department dedicated solely to creating remakes for every console and portable device generation, they would make made money

  • empirefall

    says you, the graphics have been improved, I hope they did something about the backgrounds too

  • SNK

    If only they hadn’t changed Squall’s face and hair to match his Dissidia face. Seriously, that’s a big let down for me.

  • empirefall

    they did it to Rinoa too, I do not like Dissidia Rinoa,
    I know it is the nostalgia in me but I prefer the original

  • •december

    yes I did say that!
    upgrade in textures isn’t all FF8 needs! It’s a great game

  • empirefall

    I hope they correct many of the gameplay exploits present in the original
