Square Enix today confirmed Final Fantasy 8 will get a remastered treatment, but it won't feature dramatically enhanced graphics and newly tooled systems like the Final Fantasy 7: Remake. And if you've never played the original Final Fantasy VII, you should definitely pick it up on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Switch.
Playing these two remastered games will give you a good idea of what the Final Fantasy VIII remaster will bring to the table. See for yourself in the video below.
Either way, the announcement of the Final Fantasy VIII Remaster means that you will now have the chance to own all of the PS1-era Final Fantasy games, running in modern resolutions, on non-Sony platforms. Let us know in the comments. There was also plenty of Final Fantasy love - for both VII Remake and XIV - and a whole suite of trailers. Square Enix promised to reveal more information about the highly anticipated Crystal Dynamics' The Avengers Project - now known simply as Marvel's Avengers. But the facial textures are rounded and much cleaner, with filled-out character models below them (as seen in the Tweet below).
Enemies will also have a focus bar that will allow players stagger them once they are depleted. Good news, I guess, because the entire first chapter of the episodic game will take place exclusively within the sprawling dystopia's city limits.
What did you make of Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII E3 presentation? It'll be both a single- and multi-player game, Escayg said.
When will Final Fantasy VII Remake be released? It was one of those formative "Oh crap, look at the size of this game" moments, like when you emerge into Hyrule Field for the first time in Ocarina of Time.
While less traditional than most Final Fantasy games, XV is still a compelling story with an all-new fighting mechanic.
