Final Fantasy VIII For PC Arrives In Japan On May 8

By Spencer . May 1, 2014 . 11:05pm

While Final Fantasy VIII is available now on Steam, Square Enix has not released the Japanese version. That’s about to change since Final Fantasy VIII is slated for May 8. Final Fantasy VIII for PC will be sold on Square Enix’s eStore and it will cost 1,429 yen plus tax.

 

This version includes built in cheats like the Magic Booster which gives you 100 of 19 types of spells including Curaga, Fira, Thundra, Blizzara, and Zombie. Battle Assist, a booster that changes the damage you deal to 9999, and an AP Max out feature should also make the game easier. High speed mode speeds up the game around five times. Chocobo World, the PocketStation game, is also included.

    Someone say HD remake?
    No? Then be quiet…

      I’d freaking love that… but I also want SE to focus on future projects rather than relive the glory days… as much as I’d love VIII HD.

      I mean, my avatar is proof enough how much I love the game.

        Although I played FF4 and FF6 on the SNES, FF8 was my true realization of what a final fantasy game was. The amount of nostalgia this title holds is immense for me, as is Breath of Fire III and Wild Arms 2. If any of these three games were to be remade I would die of happy shock. But yeah you’re right, Square Enix’s efforts are better concentrated on new titles.
        But maybe one day… :’)

          Yeah, maybe one day…

          And where’d you get that badass avatar from?

          • gulabjamal

            It’s Rei from Breath of Fire III. That’s his official artwork. Just googled it up and put it there :)

            I’d say his badass level is near the Squall in your profile pic

      This version is actually in native 1080p. Same with VIII.

    When no ones around I tend to make sacrifices of FF8 PC copies for the hopes I can summon the power of a FF9 PC version.

    All these rereleases are just SE’s ploy to keep us entertained and not clamor for a sooner FF15 release. And so far, I think the masses are biting.

      I guess is for the kind of people that constantly complain about drawing :V

    Japan, digital, PC… something is wrong, maybe all.
