Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will launch on September 3 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
If you’re wondering what’s new in this remastered version here you go:
- 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.
The game is available to pre-order now for $19.99. Those who pre-order on PlayStation 4 will get a PS4 system theme based on the game. You can see what that theme looks like in a video below thanks to RenkaWong.
