Final Fantasy VII + Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Twin-Pack Headed to Nintendo Switch in December 2020 1

While they were once two of the priciest PlayStation 1 games in the used video game market kudos of their exclusivity and demand, now gamers have plentiful options when it comes to purchasing the classic Square RPG’s Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII. But if you really want to play both these games, the latter of which being the remastered version, on the Nintendo Switch – you will have a new option come December 2020. Square Enix has confirmed that a Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered twin pack will be released physically on the Nintendo Switch.

The original Final Fantasy VII is an epic adventure culminating in a battle to decide the fate of the planet which has fallen under the dominion of Shinra Electric Power Company, a sinister corporation monopolizing the world’s energy force. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to an anti-Shinra resistance group calling themselves Avalanche to fight for the planet.

This version of the RPG will feature a number of cheat / experience improvement options including:

  • 3x Speed Mode: Play through the game with three times the speed.
  • No Encounters: Players will have the ability to turn battle encounters off to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story’s event battles.
  • Battle Enhancement Mode

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered retains the game’s original style and gameplay mechanics, but complements them with newly rendered visuals. Players step into the shoes of SeeD recruit Squall Leonhart and resistance fighter Rinoa Heartilly as they work together to save the world from the military nation of Galbadia.

This version of the RPG will feature a number of cheat / experience improvement options including:

  • 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.

In addition to the Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered twin-pack being available on the Nintendo Switch from 4 December 2020, a PlayStation 4 boxed version of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered only will be released at the same time.
