At E3 2019, Square Enix revealed that a remaster of the second 3D Final Fantasy game, Final Fantasy 8, is under development. This remaster will come with some new features and in an interview with Ryokutya2089, Producer Yoshinori Kitase unveiled these brand new features.
According to Yoshinori Kitase, all platforms will feature a Triple speed option, Battle Enhancements (Max HP and ATB Gauge, Special Moves always available), as well as a feature that will disable all random encounters.
Now what’s really interesting here is that the PC version will come with some exclusive features. As Kitase claimed, the PC version of Final Fantasy 8 Remaster will offer options for “Acquire all Items, Abilities, Special Moves and Triple Triad cards”, “Max GF level, Gil, and Magic” and “Highly customizable system settings”.
Final Fantasy 8 Remaster will be coming to Steam later this year. Square Enix has not revealed any specific release date but we’ll be sure to keep you posted!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
