Whilst Final Fantasy VIII does have its share of detractors, there is still a huge fanbase for the game who want to see a Remake made for next-gen consoles.

Here’s everything you need to know about Final Fantasy VIII Remake, including the release date, latest leaks, the potential of a Nintendo Switch port, gameplay and more.

By the looks of recent leaks regarding the Final Fantasy series, it actually appears as though a Final Fantasy IX leak is more likely to come before VIII.

Final Fantasy IX Remake was also part of the massive GeForce Now leak which featured a ton of games that are expected to be released in the next year or so.

Some of the other massive leaks included Resident Evil 4 Remake, Dragon's Dogma 2, Kingdom Hearts 4, Injustice 3, and Mortal Kombat 12.

Nintendo Switch

The Final Fantasy VII Remake was only available on PS4/PS5, but with Kingdom Hearts already having made its way to Nintendo Switch, fans are hoping that the rumoured Final Fantasy VIII Remake will also be heading over to the platform.

We will update this page if Square Enix makes the official announcement for Final Fantasy VIII Remake heading to the Nintendo Switch.

There is currently no gameplay available for the Final Fantasy VIII Remake online, although fans are still hoping that some will be leaked soon!

It is likely that the game, if released, will end up being along the lines of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, with a Kingdom Hearts style of fighting as opposed to the turn-based combat of the original.
