Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Now Playable on Mobile Devices

Remastered in 2019, Final Fantasy 8 is now available for Android and iOS mobile devices.


Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is now available for mobile which is originally made for PC and consoles. A sale was offered to celebrate its launch on mobile, for $16.99 you could download the FF8 Remastered on your mobile device, a good deal compared to $20.99. Just be quick because this limited sale is only available until April 4. You could download the game on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

This are the features that are added for this release:
  • Battle Assist - maxes out HP and ATB gauge during battle and let's you activate Limit Breaks anytime.
  • No Encounters - players can choose to turn Battle Encounters on or off but the big event battles will still happen.
  • 3x Speed Boost - with the exception of certain cutscenes, players can choose to proceed through the game at 3x speed.

Notes that are found on its store pages regarding on running the game:
  • This application requires approximately 2.59GB to download.
  • Entering or leaving vehicles such as cars and the Garden may occasionally get your character stuck between the vehicle and terrain features, or freeze the vehicle in place. This seems to happen more often when you leave your vehicle in close proximity to impassable terrain, or when you try to enter or leave your vehicle during certain scripted events. Currently, the only fix for this is to reload a previously saved game, so please make sure to save your progress often.
  • Some locations may be difficult to navigate using the Speed Boost (x3). We advise you to turn off this feature in such cases.
  • Make sure to check the FAQ section of our support page for solutions to common issues:
Minimum requirements to keep running the game smoothly:
  • iOS: iOS 13.0 or higher
  • Android: Android 6.0 or higher, Internal Memory (RAM):2GB or more
