Final Fantasy VIII Remastered has a release date and it is out on September 3 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. It will include some new bonus features.
Square Enix has shared details on what is being included in this newly remastered version of Final Fantasy VIII. The price has been confirmed as $19.99 which is in line with the other remastered games.
- 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.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered has some exclusive pre-order themes available to get on the PlayStation Store. It will be also out for Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
