Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Out Now on Mobile Devices

FF8 Remastered is available on iOS and Android devices with a discount for a limited time

Final Fantasy 8 Remastered is now on iOS and Android devices, Square Enix announced. That means FF8 Remastered (editor's note: the best FF) is on all modern platforms, and Square Enix is celebrating with a mobile discount for a limited time.

Until April 4, FF8 Remastered on mobile will be $16.99. Normally, it's $20.99.

Final Fantasy 8 Remastered introduced a significant visual upgrade to the PS1-era game, improving character models and enhancing backgrounds.

It also added the speed boost mode characteristic of modern Final Fantasy ports, an option to toggle random encounters, and a battle assist mode with constant limit breaks, among other benefits.

It's yet another Final Fantasy that broke new ground for the series.

Where FF7 told an anti-capitalist story about a miserable city and one very unstable silver-haired swordsman, FF8 is a story of love, futuristic warfare, witches, time travel, and more. It's a wild ride and one we heartily recommend.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
