FFVIII Being Summoned to EU PS Store

To mark the Tokyo Game Show, Japan’s biggest games conference, Square Enix, Japan’s biggest third-party developer, released the PSOne classic game Final Fantasy VIII on the Japanese PlayStation Store. FF VIII, the fastest selling FF game of all time, was released in 1999 to rather positive reviews, and, while many suggest that the game lies in the shadow of its predecessor, FF VII, it still remains a highly desirable game. Therefore, it was seen as a shame that the game was only released on the Japanese PS Store, with only the usual “no comment” given regarding an overseas release.

Now, barely a week later, Mike Kebby, SCEE PlayStation Store Team member let slip:

FVIII should be coming soonish.

With the game now confirmed for Europe the likelihood of an American release is all the more probable, which should come as great news for Final Fantasy fans.
