E3 2019: Final Fantasy VIII Remastered announced for consoles

11 June 2019 – by Jack Taylor

Square Enix has announced the release of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, launching for consoles and PC later in the year.

Final Fantasy VIII was conspicuous in its absence when Final Fantasy VII and IX were released for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One earlier this year, with Square Enix dedicating its release "to the fans who have been waiting".

The remastered version of the 1999 classic was announced during Square Enix's E3 presentation, and will include newly rendered visuals that can be seen in the trailer below.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam later this year.
