The wait will soon be over as the Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is coming out on September 3rd. That's definitely a lot sooner than I thought it would be.
While VII gets a lot of hype, I personally know a few people that enjoyed VIII more. The graphics certainly looked cleaned up and a lot better. I've read rumors that the game could feature voice acting, but even if it doesn't, it should still be a must buy for fans of the original.
September 3rd will be when you can pick the game up for the PC, Switch, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One.
