The official PlayStation blog has revealed a few new features in the upcoming Final Fantasy VIII Remastered release.
According to the blog, the remaster will include Battle Assist, an option to turn off random encounters, and 3x speed boost to speed up battles.
Here’s more details on these features:
- Enhanced visuals: Several characters, enemies, GF, and objects have been refined to look better than ever before.
- Battle Assist: Activate this booster to max out HP and ATB bars – and trigger Limit Breaks at any time. You will lose all HP when you get hit by a critical attack that gives more damage than your HP, or by lethal damage.
- No encounters: Want to explore without fear of attack? Activate this option to turn off random encounters. Event battles must still be done in order to advance the story.
- 3x speed boost: Accelerates time by a factor of three – perfect if you want to speed through easy battles or get somewhere in a hurry. This feature will not apply to certain scenes including movies.
