The official Final Fantasy VIII Remastered website is offering curious visitors a hint at what may be one of the first major, non-visual changes to the game.

NeoGAF user ULTROS! recently discovered that the Final Fantasy VIII Remastered website includes some interesting details hidden in the source code. Written in it is the following:

“Widely beloved, FINAL FANTASY VIII casts unlikely heroes into a war to save the world. The military nation of Galbadia has declared war on the Dukedom of Dollet, who are left with no choice but to hire a mercenary force for their defense. Enter SeeD and its newest member: Squall Leonhart. Together with his friends, Squall joins Rinoa Heartilly, a member of a resistance group, on an adventure that holds the fate of their world in its balance. FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered marks the 20th anniversary of its original release with a complete visual refresh and brings the game’s classic story to modern platforms: Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. With fully overhauled visuals, see your favorite characters come to life like never before! FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered is an RPG, available in English and Japanese voiceover, and is also text localized into French, Italian, German and Spanish.”

The paragraph begins like a simple summary of Final Fantasy VIII‘s plot, but it closes mentioning English and Japanese voiceovers. Final Fantasy X was the first mainline Final Fantasy game to include full voiceovers, so this would be a major change to Final Fantasy VIII.

The text can be found in a block of JavaScript code which is not currently visible on the site’s live design.
