Final Fantasy VIII heads to PC in Japan next week

The original Final Fantasy VIII port for PC will be making its way to Japan next week, Square Enix has announced today. Despite the game being available through digital services in the West for some time now, its domestic release remained undecided until now.

The game will launch on May 8th through Square Enix’s online store at the cost of ¥1,429 plus tax. Similar to the PC version of Final Fantasy VII, FFVIII on PC includes several booster modes that increase spell count, damage dealt and an option to speed the game up quite a bit.
