Decades Later, Final Fantasy VIII Is Getting A Physical Release On PS4

Last year’s surprise remaster of Final Fantasy VIII is getting a physical version on PS4 in Europe and a few other countries, because it’s 2020 and there are no rules.

Square Enix announced the unusual collector’s item on Twitter earlier today with a price tag of €19.99 ($33). In addition to Europe, it’ll also be available in Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Final Fantasy VIII was one of the series more unusual departures when it came to the PlayStation back in 1999, like a season of Road Rules punctuated with lots of magic spells and extremely trippy metaphysics. But after years of being overlooked, Square Enix finally re-introduced it last year with some modern touches, including HD textures, a speed boost mode, and the option to play through the entire game without random encounters.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is also getting a physical re-release on Switch as part of a dual-pack alongside Final Fantasy VII Remastered. It’s almost like Square knows fans need only the thinnest of excuses to keep re-buying these games.
