And just like that, Final Fantasy VIII Remastered has a confirmed PlayStation 4 release date. It's coming in just a couple of weeks time on 3rd September, bringing with it a whole host of new features that will make playing the game itself a much better experience in 2019. It's priced at $19.99, and can be pre-ordered from the PlayStation Store right now.

The remastered version comes with enhanced visuals, a battle assist that'll max out your HP and ATB gauges at the push of a button, a no encounters option that allows you to explore freely without the fear of battle, and a 3x speed boost which quickens up the pace of the experience dramatically. These are the sorts of features we saw in Final Fantasy VII's remaster a couple of years back, and pre-ordering will net you a static theme on PS4.
