Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Why was FFVIII left behind??

FFVII, FFIX, FFX,...what's the reason of Square Enix to not include FFVIII? were there any statements from SE about the reason? i find it a little strange, for me it's still one of the best games...

FF8 is not on iOS/Android/XBox or even PS4 either I don't think. They're likely bringing it out next year but want to announce it next year because 2019 is the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VIII. It's most likely coming, I wouldn't sweat it.

its not available on mobile, steam or PS4.  So it hasnt even been ported yet. Maybe at PSX we get the port announcement. 



Some people argue that that might be due to them having issues due to copyrights for "Eyes On Me". Shame though, it is my favourite of the 3D FF games, after IX.

It is available on Steam, but not the others.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Its not listed because its Bluepoint games next remaster. They are saving it for that.



Probably because they will be making a remaster in the future.

I am lwying VIII on PS3 for the past three or four years, and I find it to be very bleh...don't like the characters, the junction system messed me up bc I didn't realize how important it was until 2/3 through the game, and the story is ridiculous (although vey entertaining, I must admit).
So I won't miss it, but still sucks for thr fans!



It's my favourite, too! I think there are legal issues with the title track "Eyes on me". That should be the reason why a mobile port doesn't exist either.

What I don't understand: this song was composed by Uematsu, but was obviously first released on Faye Wong's album. Strange.
