While Final Fantasy VII may be the most popular and a lot of fun, I still personally have had more love for its follow-up, the very underrated Final Fantasy VIII. Now for those that have never owned a Sony console, you will have the chance to play Final Fantasy VIII as it hits Steam today.
Final Fantasy VII arrived on Steam awhile ago, so there was little doubt that Final Fantasy VIII would come sooner or later. Just like VII, there are a couple extra features that were not part of the original releases, or those on PSN.
When Magic Booster is used, the player’s inventory of the following spells is increased by 100:
Cure, Cura, Curaga, Fire, Fira, Blizzard, Blizzara, Thunder, Thundara, Sleep, Blind, Silence, Berserk, Bio, Esuna, Aero, Confuse, Break, Zombie
This feature can be used from the launcher.
This version of FFVIII includes the full game “Chocobo World” that was released as a separate application for previous versions. It is possible to play “Chocobo World” directly from the launcher after booting up FFVIII and by fulfilling certain specific conditions in the main game you will also be able to synchronise data between the two games.
You can purchase Final Fantasy VIII on Steam today for $11.99.
