During E3 2019, Square Enix dropped the most anticipated bomb – Final Fantasy 8 is getting the remastered treatment.

Yes. That’s right. After YEARS of waiting, decades, Final Fantasy 8 Remastered has been announced with a planned launch on all platforms, including the Nintendo Switch!

All of our beloved characters are finally returning to modern consoles to deliver a story that rivals Final Fantasy 7. Yes, I went there. The most exciting part about all this though is that we will only need to wait a few months because Square Enix announced it’ll be launching this year!

For those who don’t know about this game (why?!) here’s the official description from Square Enix:

“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.”
