[SE] Final Fantasy 8 is coming to PC with high res graphics

The website also says if additional features other than the graphical upgrade are in the game or not is yet to be determined. The PC version mad the Chocobo World mini-RPG more accessible since you didn’t need the Japan-only PocketStation to play it. The monochrome mini-RPG powers up Boku’s attack and rewards players with extra items.

Would much like X on the PC, Yeah sure emulator hurr durr but the textures look crap coz of pre rendered backgrounds.

This was the first Final Fantasy I ever played and it was amazing. It got me started on the whole series. Very excited to see this come to the PC.

i'm sure 2 years after the PS3 HD remaster we will see it on PC with 16:9 ratio and hopefully 4k res

High res graphics = widescreen support.

Nothing more than a marketing gimmick since most of FF8 was pre-rendered.

Neat! Now they just need to do the same with IX! biggrin.gif

Quistis seriously needs to use TressFX next time she bathes mad.gif

My first FF game I played, then stopped at IX. I wish it isn't just better resolution but rather on a newer engine, uses tessellation, physics, etc.. -- yea one can dream.

Give me the real FLAC OST or at least some mp3 320k. That midi crap got replaced as soon as someone uploaded perfect copies for the rerelease of FFVII.
