Final Fantasy VIII Remastered arrives on PlayStation 4 on September 3rd, 2019. In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, the Square Enix marketing team share a new look at the features to be included.
The game is also set to release on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
— 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.
PlayStation 4 owners can also pre-order for an exclusive static theme.
