Square Enix has shared some new screenshots for Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, which releases on Nintendo Switch this week.
These show Rinoa’s pet dog Angelo – or Sant’ Angelo di Roma – leaping into action, who the character calls upon for her Limit Break attacks and can be taught new tricks with the Pet Pals magazine.
In Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, under the influence of the sorceress Edea the military nation of Galbadia has declared war on the Dukedom of Dollet, who must hire the mercenary force, SeeD.
Squall Leonhart, a new member of SeeD, together with his friends and Rinoa Heartilly, a member of a resistance group, get pulled into the war, unaware of their fated task to save the world.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered has the following boosts to enhance the experience:
Battle Assist: The ability to always have maxed out HP and ATB, and trigger Limit Breaks at any time.
No Encounters: An enemy encounter option that allows players to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story’s event battles.
3x Speed Boost: Play through the game with three times the speed.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 3rd.
