Months after its initial reveal, we still haven't gotten over the bootleg quality of the upcoming AAA Avengers video game from Marvel and Square Enix. We thought watching this footage of the game [...]
At E3 2019, Square Enix revealed Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, and its coming to Switch. A couple of retailers then listed the game, which indicated that a physical release is planned. Of course, that doesnt actually mean much until pre-orders open.
The Final Fantasy series was once the king of the RPG genre. While its recent output is still great, one could convincingly argue that they've made a few missteps. They will inevitably put out a sixteenth numbered entry sometime in the future, and this will be their chance to rectify any recent mistakes.
Whatever Square Enix does with its trademark franchise's next game, here are a few things some may hope they include which would surely improve the franchise and restore any good faith it may have lost with hardcore fans over the past ten years. Keep in mind, though, Final Fantasy XVI shows no signs of even being announced anytime soon.
The Nerd Stash: "Final Fantasy VIII is one of my favorite games in the series and after the relatively recent re-releases of VII & IX, Ive been waiting patiently for the remaster of the seemingly forgotten entry. At one point it had seemed as if we would never get to play Final Fantasy VIII on current consoles. Thankfully, this is no longer the case as Square Enix has now announced its release later in the year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. I for one, couldnt be more excited.
It turns out though that not everyone shares my excitement. After speaking to many people and trawling the depths of the internet, I have discovered that some people absolutely despise Final Fantasy VIII. They dont just dislike it a little, they hate it. And then you have the other side of the coin, people like me, who love it."
Amazon has discounted the physical versions of several notable Nintendo Switch games published by Square Enix with Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster dropping to $34.99, Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age to $34.99, Octopath Traveler to $45.99 and Dragon Quest Builders 2 to $50.94.
