Final Fantasy 8 Remastered was released for the PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in September 2019. The game is a fully enhanced version – but not an actual remake – of the classic 1999 PlayStation One RPG, featuring improved visuals and much more.
The original version of Final Fantasy 8 is a fan-favourite title, and saw the franchise take a more realistic visual path in comparison to previous titles. The game was a huge success, and by August last had sold 9.6 million units worldwide.
