Square Enix recently listed a new product on its US website to bring back the original music from Final Fantasy VIII as the latest entry in its Revival disc series.
The Final Fantasy VIII Original Soundtrack Revival Disc is a Blu-ray disc that Square hopes will bring back the joy of playing its beloved JRPG for the first time. Although a tracklist has yet to be published, if this disc follows the same path as Square Enix’s past Revival discs, it should include the full OST.
The release of this disc comes at an opportune time, as Final Fantasy VIII Remastered was released earlier this month for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Remastered uses the music from the original PlayStation game, rather than the much-scrutinized soundtrack from its PC release of the following year.
Along with MP3s from the OST, this disc includes “handpicked scenes from the entire storyline that integrate well with each of the tracks,” and Square Enix has elaborated that this includes both cutscenes and “various scenes that will make you want to pick up the controller once again.”
The Final Fantasy VIII Original Soundtrack Revival Disc will also include a booklet containing special comments from members of the original development team.
Preorders for this Revival disc are available now at USD$49.99 on the official Square Enix website and Play-Asia. It becomes available on December 4, but it is being imported from Japan and is listed on Play-Asia as expected to ship on December 9.
