With all of the information that has sprinkled in about the upcoming remastered game from Square-Enix, we know have the Final Fantasy 8 Remastered release date confirmed! You won’t have to wait long either!
Final Fantasy 8 Remastered PS4 Release Date
Up until now, the Final Fantasy 8 Remastered release was given the vague release window of “late 2019.” However, we have fantastic news on that front: Final Fantasy 8 Remastered will hit stores Sept. 3! That’s right, you won’t have to wait long at all. And it’ll only set you back $20!
This announcement comes officially from the PlayStation Blog. Some convenient features come with the release, making gameplay much easier for players crunched for time. Those include:
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.
To top it off, if you pre-order now, the game will include a static Final Fantasy 8 theme to boot. Unfortunately, the post does not confirm that there will be a physical release of Final Fantasy 8 Remastered, but pre-orders for them are still available on Play-Asia.
