In June on Xbox Wire, we were excited to announce that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered would come to Xbox One this year. So, it is safe to say we are now thrilled to reveal that this beloved RPG story of love and war will arrive on Xbox One on September 3, 2019! Yes, it’s right around the corner.
The story of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered follows Squall and other members of SeeD, an elite mercenary force, unexpectedly cast in a war to save the world. Join hands with Rinoa, a resistance fighter, and fight against Galbadia’s tyrannical rule and to prevent Sorceress Edea from fulfilling her ultimate goal: dominion over all.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered features more than just enhanced visuals. It also includes additional options to customize your gameplay experience and difficulty, such as:
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.
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.
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.
We hope you’ll enjoy discovering or rediscovering this timeless story on September 3.
