In Final Fantasy VIII, Galbadia has declared war on the Dukedom of Dollet. With his friends, resistance member Squall Leonhart gets pulled into the war, unaware of their fate to save the world.

It is a time of war. The Republic of Galbadia, under the influence of the sorceress Edea, mobilizes its great armies against the other nations of the world.

In Final Fantasy VIII, the military nation of Galbadia has declared war on the Dukedom of Dollet, who must hire the mercenary force, SeeD. Squall Leonhart, a new member of SeeD, together with his friends and Rinoa Heartilly, a member of a resistance group, get pulled into the war, unaware of their fated task to save the world.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered brings the game's classic story to modern platforms, featuring new graphical enhancements and a whole host of options to customize your gameplay experience that bring the characters to life.

Square Enix announced that two of gaming’s most cherished RPGs, Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will unite in a twin-pack physical release for the Nintendo Switch system in Europe this December.

A timeless classic loved by a legion of fans across the globe, FINAL FANTASY VII is an epic adventure culminating in a battle to decide the fate of the planet which has fallen under the dominion of Shinra Electric Power Company, a sinister corporation monopolizing the world’s energy force. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to an anti-Shinra resistance group calling themselves Avalanche to fight for the planet. In addition to a powerful and emotional storyline, Final Fantasy VII also includes:

  • 3x Speed Mode: Play through the game with three times the speed.
  • No Encounters: Players will have the ability to turn battle encounters off to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story’s event battles.
  • Battle Enhancement Mode
Over 20 years on from the game’s original release, FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered breathes new life into the game’s characters and story like never before. With newly rendered visuals, players step into the shoes of SeeD recruit Squall Leonhart and resistance fighter Rinoa Heartilly as they work together to save the world from the military nation of Galbadia. Final Fantasy VIII Remastered features the following boosts to enhance the experience even further:
  • Battle Assist: The ability to always have maxed out HP and ATB, and trigger Limit Breaks at any time.
  • No Encounters: An enemy encounter option that allows players to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story’s event battles.
  • 3x Speed Boost: Play through the game with three times the speed.
The Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered twin-pack will be available for the Nintendo Switch from 4th December and is available to pre-order from select retailers in Europe now. In addition, a boxed version of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will also be available for the PS4 from December 4, 2020.

This product is a remaster of Final Fantasy VIII, featuring multiple enhancements including additional options to customize your gameplay experience and difficulty, such as:

  • Battle assist options (HP, ATB gauge, and Limit Break boosts)
