Final Fantasy VIII HD Re-Release Announced for PC

Oh Quistis, you have aged so well.

Square Enix is proud to announce that Final Fantasy VIII will be coming to PC soon. Dubbed the International Version, it be a while before North America sees it since the company is busy with a Japanese release first, but there's reward for those who wait. The PC version has noticeably improved HD graphics that make it a worthwhile visit for revisiting.

This isn't the first time Final Fantasy VIII has had a PC release. A year after its 1999 console release it met PCs with a buggy experience that frustrated many. The same could be said of Final Fantasy VII's Windows release which was cleaned up during its 2012 re-release.

Speaking of Final Fantasy VII's re-release, the results were relatively positive. Character models were much more defined but weren't saved from their old age. However, the game's artistic environments are a relic worth re-experiencing, as is the game's story. The game also had an integrated Character Booster, cloud saves, and achievements. It's unclear if Final Fantasy VIII will be treated with the same luxuries.

This was honestly the first Final Fantasy game I ever played (never owned a PS so I missed out on VII, and never went back and played the PC version) so I for one am great to see it coming back, even if it isn't exactly heralded like VII was.

I might actually consider picking this up. I didn't get FFVII simply because it does not deserve it. I loved it at first until I got internet and saw the fandom. I also saw other RPGs that were much better than it yet people hated those games.

I enjoyed FFVIII a lot, especially the card game. So much that I remember playing the card game online through some fan made program that was insanely cool. It included the FFIX game and a bunch of other mini-games like Tetris.

If only they released this on Steam...
