Square Enix has announced the official release date for the long awaited remaster of the iconic JRPG, Final Fantasy VIII. The remaster of the classic was recently announced to many eager fans as they watched nearly every other title in the main series receive special re-release treatment.

Check out the remastered enhancements from the PlayStation Blog below:
- Enhanced visuals: Several characters, enemies, GF, and objects have been refined to look better than ever before.
- Battle Assist: 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.
- No encounters: 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.
- 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.
The Final Fantasy VIII Remaster is set to release now in just a couple of weeks on September 3, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
