        Why do they keep on remastering games instead of giving us something new? They are all selling us old stuff in a new light and we are happily (I don't) purchasing it. It's a waste of money and time. How about a new game instead? How about something we don't know yet instead of giving us all the old games again and again and again? The glorious days of gaming are long past... so the developers deciding to take exactly those games from those glory days, remastering them and resell them. A pity!

              Imagine getting a remaster.
              But, like, an *actual remaster with brand-new models*
              And *VOICE ACTING WTF*

              When you gonna do my boy IX right Square? Can't even use an analog stick right in the IX ports.

                          This version is release by game card or download only? But I prefer game card because we can collect this classic game.

                                          My only gripe is that it doesn't fit the Switch's resolution perfectly, but man it's nice

                                            When it will be 4:3, you have more places on left and right for touch butons. :-)

                                                      Only think I didn't like on this game was the fact you need skills/magic to make it your att/def ECT. Coming off on the classic JRPGs where you find armor to increase your stats FF8 has none of that.

                                                      I did beat the game years ago but rushed it due to not liking the stat system. But I will try it again when it comes out on Switch. I just hope there are no load times as seeing it's going to be on a cart now.

                                                          I love FFVIII, it was my fist rpg I ever played back in 2002 when I was 13-14 years old. I have played it soo many times and completed nigh perfect file(no Chocobo World stuff) with maxed unjunctioned stats(besides SPD and Luck) and perfected GFs. The story in good and the OST is wonderful. I really hope that certain key characters backstories are expanded and explained upon and the lore is also explained more in depth. I feel there is a lot of potential there in an already great game.

                                                          I'm super excited! Thanks for doing this Square and Nintendo!
