A few months ago, Square Enix announced that it was bringing a number of Final Fantasy games to Nintendo Switch. Luckily, one of the announced titles was Final Fantasy VIII. Final Fantasy VII is regarded as a cult classic and focuses on war. The Republic of Galbadia, under the influence of the sorceress Edea, mobilizes its armies against other nations of the world. Squall and other members of SeeD, an elite mercenary force, join hands with Rinoa, a resistance fighter, to fight against Galbadia's tyrannical rule and to prevent Edea from fulfilling her ultimate goal.
If you played Final Fantasy VIII back in the day, you may remember the pixelated visuals.

You can take a look at some of the changes below.
