      Since you're updating character models, how about giving a little love to the effects/sprites/particles?

                  My first thought was "This doesn't even look different." Then I went back to look at the original character models. Yikes. I take it back. o_O

                        This games soundtrack is ingrained into my soul, extremely excited for this. Glad it specifically says steam, only playing old titles at this point due 2 micro transactions and Epic deals. This will be the first new release I will buy in years.

                                Remasters feel like a waste of money. At least update the textures and videos.

                                  Goddammit....I bought your "remastered" version of ff8 on steam like 2 years ago.... And now its "remastered" again??!? If you have already bought ff8 on steam.....just download the roses and wine mod and do what this "remaster" basically does.....for free. I fucking love you Square....but I also cant spend money on a title I have bought over 5 times in the past 20 years everytime you throw something new into it.

                                      Remastered? It's still in fullscreen 4:3 format and not widescreen 16:9 format and looks the same as it did before just a little less pixelated. They need to completely remake the graphics same as Final Fantasy 7.

                                        I agree, this "remaster" looks like ass. Was hoping for something on the level of FFX HD but nope...

                                          I grew up with this game instead so I never understood what all the FF7 hype was about. I've been meaning to play this again for quite some time now so this is pretty cool.

                                                If the ffVII remake does good and this remaster does good than there is maybe a chance we will get a ffVIII remake like ffVII.

What the fuck???? ff7 sucked major dick compared to 8. and they get a whole new face lift. FUCKING REMAKE THE GOD DAMN GRAPHICS AND VISUALS. WHICH you should of done for this version instead of 7. 7 already had a fuckin movie and got what we wanted. BUT HOLY TITS some nice ass animation would of made 8 the best final fantasy of all time.

Remake for ff7 is basically going under plastic surgery for a whole face lift. While ff8 is basically getting a remastered of an already HD remake. Which makes it look like ffx graphics for the ps2. Maybe some of us would like ps3 quality? Nothing to big to ask of, they have the team for it. They can spend 2 years or so upgrading environments and character sprites. The coding is already there.

Maybe make enemies/bosses tougher and always 1-5 levels higher than you, characters/GF's a bit less powerful, and the junction system less game breaking? Also add the Japanese version differences too. :)

It takes another part of the system out of the game if i do that. I don't want to deal with less mechanics, nor make Squall more OP than the rest which creates character unbalance. It's not as fun that way lol.

I still remember sitting in class 20 years ago, waiting for school to end just so I could come home to play this. I'm beyond happy for this remaster. I hope that there will be a remaster someday, I don't mind waiting the remainder of my lifetime for it.

I'd call this a remaster if it was anywhere close to how Octopath Traveler was, sadly I'll be skipping this "remaster" in favor for my regular FF8 with the available mods to make it Remastered.

I wonder if voice acting will be added. That would be well advised. VIII is an underdog of the series, although it was the first Final Fantasy game to feature characters with fully proportional bodies.

As a young man I play this game more then any game that I've ever played, well over two thousand hours of play time. I know that the game could have been beaten in less time but I took my sweet time and expropriated ever digital inche of Final Fantasy 7. I know this game inside and out where all the hidden treasures where and all the best places for items and where to go to level up all my character's. This game like no other has given me so much joy and entertainment and to now know that it's going to be remastered for the PS4. All I can say it thank from the bottom and top of my heart for doing this. Square Enix will forever be one of the greatest gaming studio in my humble opinion. You have made a dream come true and also I was wondering if you could do a remake of another game that has always been one of my favorites and that is Final Fantasy Tactics. I still have it and play it from time to time but I would really love to have a completely remade game maybe for the PS5. Again I would like to thank everyone at Square Enix for making my youth so special with all the AWESOME game's that you all have given to us over the year's. Your biggest fan. David Cromer.
