This one came out of left field for me. With the original source code known to be lost and years upon years of waiting and SE basically just saying sorry guys, not happening, to finally see it getting some love is pretty cool. The only thing more amazing to me than it happening is that it doesn’t have a definitive release date, simply sometime in 2019.
This tho does make sense, if the tale of much of the code being lost it would be much harder to simply port over and remaster than any of the other games in the series. Will it be a good remaster, I don’t know. The fact however that PC already has FF8 but the remaster is coming to PS4,Xbox, Switch, and Steam makes me think they are doing some decent work on the title. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
