If you are one of those looking forward to Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, you might have heard that it will only be coming out in 2020. However, in the meantime, you might be pleased to learn that Square Enix has also recently confirmed that they will be releasing the Final Fantasy VIII Remake this coming September.
The game will be officially out on the 3rd of September and will be playable across multiple platforms. This includes the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch, and the PC. The game is currently available for pre-order via Square Enix’s website if you are interested in reserving your copy now.
That being said, it is worthy to note that the Final Fantasy VIII Remake will not be as comprehensive compared to the Final Fantasy VII Remake. It will feature remastered graphics to make it more on par with today’s modern gaming systems, and will also come with new features. This includes the ability to switch off encounters for those who aren’t fans of that feature, and also the ability to play scenes at three times the speed.
There will also be support for Full HD displays, so the game should look better than what most of you remember.
