As far as gaming is concerned today is a very special day especially for those who have been long time fans of the Final Fantasy series since the late 90’s. It was on February 11th back in 1999 where Final Fantasy VIII was released on the PS1. Final Fantasy VIII was the highly anticipated sequel of the critically acclaimed Final Fantasy VII game Square Enix released for the PS1 console that was released back in 1997. While Final Fantasy VII ended up becoming the second best selling PS1 title reaching over 9.7 million units worldwide Final Fantasy VIII was not quite as popular as its predecessor. However, Final Fantasy VIII was still very successful and managed to reach over 7.8 million units in sales on the PS1 while becoming the seventh best selling game on the 32-bit console during the late 90’s.
The multi-disk FFVIII game is one that many people have wanted to see receive an HD remake for two decades now and its uncertain on whether or not Square Enix plans on making it a reality. While a series of Final Fantasy games are expected to on the Nintendo Switch including FFVII, FFX, FF Crystal Chronicles and FFXII there has been no talk of FFVIII being ported to the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully, Square Enix will do something special with Final Fantasy VIII within the next year or so especially since the demand of a remastered version of the game is high among those who are huge fans of the series in general.
