If you’re looking forward to Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, you likely heard the news that it will be coming out in 2020. However, in the meantime, you might be happy to learn that Square Enix has also recently confirmed that they will be releasing the Final Fantasy VIII Remake this September. So it is a good new bad news kind of thing.
The game will be officially out on September 3rd 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 available for pre-order right now via Square Enix’s website if you want to reserve your copy ahead of time.
This Final Fantasy VIII Remake will not be as comprehensive as the Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is probably why it arrives faster. It has remastered graphics and new features like 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 us remember from when we played it the first time.
