It’s been about fifteen years since the original 1999 release of FF8. Well, on Thursday this week the HD re-release hit Steam’s digital shelves for $11.99. Better still, there’s a discount if you pick up the key from the UK based digital retailer Green Man Gaming
Final Fantasy VIII is only $9.60 after coupon code GMG20-CV2W4-DSYBT at GMG. That’s 20% off the usual $11.99. The coupon code will be valid until December 9th at 8AM Pacific.
The latest December 5th release is not the first PC launch for FF8. In fact there was a 2000 Windows launch, complete with the Chocobo World minigame which was missing from the 1999 PlayStation US launch. This latest HD launch from Square Enix will, of course, include “Chocobo World”.
What’s also notable, once you fulfill specific conditions in the main game you will be able to play “Chocobo World” directly from the launcher and be able to synchronise that data between the two games.
