Final Fantasy VIII has been missing from the recent barrage of Final Fantasy HD remasters including VII, IX, X & X-2, and XII, but it will be making a high-definition appearance in the form of a collaboration with the series’ smartphone and PC RPG Mobius Final Fantasy.
Final Fantasy VIII celebrates its 20th anniversary this year after having released for the PlayStation in February 11, 1999. Mobius Final Fantasy is joining with a major collaboration event featuring protagonist Squall Leonhart main antagonist Ultimecia, who recently appeared in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, but this time they appear with character models made for the smartphone RPG. The collaboration started in December, but its final part is coming on March 1, 2019
You can check out its latest trailer below:
The collaboration event is titled “Sleeping Lion” featuring Squall and Ultimecia, who are voiced in the new trailer.
The above is a look at an earlier trailer, and it’s a neat one that is a little Mobius version of Final Fantasy VIII’s opening cutscene.
The Final Fantasy VIII collaboration event “Sleeping Lion” launches its final chapter on March 1, 2019 for the Japanese version of the game.
Mobius Final Fantasy is available on iOS, Android, and PC via Steam as a free-to-play title.
