Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Announced for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC

Well, Square Enix sure did have a lot of Final Fantasy announcements at their E3 2019 press conference. Final Fantasy VII: Remake, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, more stuff about Final Fantasy XIV, and, as you've probably guessed, a remastered version of Final Fantasy VIII, coming to every current-generation platform.

Revealed in a trailer, the re-release of the teenage angst-filled RPG will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. We saw footage of some of the game's most iconic scenes and characters, which will certainly hit you in the nostalgia bones if you actually liked this entry for some reason.

Final Fantasy VIII is notable as being the turning point where the series dramatically increased its audiovisual production fidelity and art style, featuring realistic character designs and vocals in its soundtrack. It also made some highly contentious design decisions, namely a unique magic system which did not use a traditional MP gauge and required you to "Draw" spells from enemies. However, Final Fantasy VIII did have one of the series' most beloved side activities, a card game called Triple Triad.

I had just read an article talking about how we might never see a remaster of VIII because it was uncertain if all the, like, files and shit were stored properly or something. So this is really great.

This is the stuff I'm excited to use my Switch for, if they all come out for it.

Not sure I really care about the VII Remake. I still can't really tell what the combat system is, but it doesn't quite look like my cup of tea.

Maybe it took a while for Square to find all the days, or maybe they had to use the PC version and port that over. Either way, the Switch now has final fantasy 7-12 with the exception of 11. That’s makes it the first Nintendo console in over 20 years to have them.

I’ll probably pick up FF8 when it launches as I have never beaten it despite getting to disc 3 on the original PS1 version.
