Square Enix has set a release date for Final Fantasy 8 Remastered.
Final Fantasy 8 Remastered will be released two weeks from now on September 3.
The HD upgrade was announced at E3 this year, although it did leak ahead of the show.
If you’ve never played the game, in it you step into the shoes of SeeD recruit Squall Leonhart and resistance fighter Rinoa Heartilly. The duo will work together to “save the world from the military nation of Galbadia.”
It has received more than a visual overhaul, as Final Fantasy 8 Remastered will feature the following boosts upon release:
- Battle Assist: The ability to always have maxed out HP and ATB, and trigger Limit Breaks at any time.
- No Encounters: An enemy encounter option that allows players to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story event battles.
- 3x Speed Boost: Play through the game with three times the speed.
- The Steam will receive additional functions, including All Items (possess all items except for a few certain items), All Abilities, GF Max Level, Max Gil, Max Magic, All Limit Breaks, and All Cards (possess max number of Triple Triad Cards except for Rare Cards).
The game will be made available on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
